    Default Nexus 5 and h.265/HEVC playback

    Hi,

    Anyone successfully playing back HEVC media with a Nexus 5? If so, with which media player?

    I've tried several and Ultimate Media Player seems to be the best - others either don't play the video at all or don't play the audio or have too many frame drops - although I get some frame drops (even with the lowest settings and H/W decoding on).

    Thanks,

    ->g.

    I love MX Player. Supports every format I've ever thrown at it. Not sure if it supports HEVC.

    Try MX Player. If that doesn't work, try BS Player.

    MX player doesn't play back the video. I'll try BS player.

    Not sure how brave you are but I have done this with a custom build of a player though I am pretty sure some players in play store do this now too. I will upload mine at some point.

    Initial details on the build process here: Playing HEVC/H.265 on Android with ffmpeg, libx265 and Vitamio - Sinclair Media Technology

    X265 works on my lg g3 in mxplayer with hw decoder selected in settings, (i only had audio and a black screen with sw decoder). Dont know if nexus 5 has the right hardware to do it though?

    What is BS player? I don' think media player can support H.265 video now because my VLC media player is not compatible with any H.265 MP4 video I have tried.
