YouTube HDR

I've been enjoying videos from The Silent Watcher on YouTube. Their videos look drastically different when viewed through my Chromecast Ultra vs. my TCL R625's Roku YouTube app. Stats for nerds verifies I'm looking at 4k HDR from both sources, and the TV picture settings are the same.

For example in this video the sand gets blindingly white and washes out detail on the Roku YouTube app, but not on the Chromecast. I'm a little frustrated because when it's not washing out detail, the colors look more vibrant through the built in app.

Any ideas what is going on? I'm wondering if it has something to do with The Silent Watcher using HLG HDR because other HDR videos are pretty consistent between sources.
