This is false Information. The PlayStation 5 does not support Dolby Atmos or any other Dolby feature because Sony did NOT bought licenses to use the features in the PlayStation 5.
What you are saying is both wrong and right.
Microsoft bought the license for Atmos. They literally upmix everything and output it as Dolby Atmos, even at the menu.
Sony didn't buy the license and they can't do that.
Playing a Blu-Ray with an Atmos stream will decode as Atmos if your receiver supports Atmos. It is simple as that.
If I played Roger Waters The Wall Blu-Ray in my PS4, my receiver decodes it as Dolby Atmos.
Sony is just passing on the bitstream.

the test explaining what happen on xbox one x
edit :the description make the test not clear
edit2: trustable source confirm it was fixed. so what is Vincent talking about ?
I know you made edits, but just for clarity, that video was from November 2017. I believe that Microsoft fixed most of the issues for 4K Blu-Ray playback. See below (from July 2019).
I would assume that the Series X would be quite similar if not better.

This video is highly ciriticable though :
  • Valerian is not hdr
  • Ready player one has hdr10 and dolby vision support

so this don't dismiss anything about a Dolby vision problem.
i trust Vincent there, the guy is really methodical. but i want more details from him.
