Anyone tried HEVC (H.265) playback? It probably doesn't work for you.

    Interesting. I use the CCCP code pack and the video plays fine in Media Player Classic and in VLC but in Windows Media Player and the Movies and TV apps I only get sound. Support for the codec must be absent or disabled.

    Windows Media Player doesn't have native support for HEVC H.265.

    @Gharlane00: MPC-HC 1.7.10 has native support for HEVC H.265 without any extra codec pack installed.

    ...on systems without the hardware support that the MS rep in the above thread is talking about.

    On systems with the support, it does.

    I remember testing it out during the beta...on a system that definitely doesn't have the hardware support, and it worked fine with x265.

    HEVC file works fine with Windows Media player. My rig Intel Haswell i5-4570S with old Z87 chipset and with new intel 20.19.15.4360 WHQL drivers ...

    By the way, read this article too, about Intel's old 15.series drivers (most people use them):

    Yes, it would seem just GTX950/960 and Intel Skylake.

    I wish I could put on an old build to see if there was some devastating CPU pegging going on when playing HEVC. That doesn't happen with VLC, so I don't know why it would with WMP back then.

    Yes, players like VLC and MPC-HC are going to work fine, since they contain the codec in question.

    VLC doesn't count given it doesn't use the sistem codecs at all.

    For anything else (including the Windows Media Center and Windows Media Player), the tiny LAV filters are enough to play almost everything.

    Played really well on mine, WMP and TV and Movies, looked real, real nice, I believe the best to date, I have GeForce 960 and maybe it only play's on certain hardware, but MS needs to bring it on, no tearing what so ever.:biggrin:
