Searched various settings and researched it and insured my system is functioning. I have a 5.1 surround sound system.

Why do I find DTS and THX demo clips on Youtube, when youtube only supports stereo?

Because YouTube allows anyone to upload videos and the average person has no idea what they are doing.

There's a big Dolby logo on many of those videos. The Dolby channel is home to most of them.
The LG engineer who installed my TV and Soundbar used a Dolby Youtube video to "demonstrate" the TV and Soundbar were working.
This isn't dumb uploaders its market manipulation.

Mark Hadley 7077 - Yes, I agree. I used to get 5.1 surround sound from the YouTube app on my Samsung TV to my Bose Soundbar. At about the time you mentioned (late 2019), it stopped working. Those Dolby Digital demo videos people keep mentioning did indeed used to be in 5.1. I have a playlist of 5.1 demos on YouTube that I use to show off the soundbar. They no longer play in 5.1. But they definitely used to. I have one demo that sent sound to each channel and showed on-screen which channel was playing. The rears sounded amazing when it used to be in 5.1 (so did the sub). None of the demos in that playlist are 5.1 anymore. But there was a time when you could get 5.1 from YouTube. I don't know why YouTube won't just be clear on this matter. I'm a YouTube Premium subscriber, and that doesn't offer 5.1 either.
