Description

If it is not much of a stretch, could the libav included in Movian be updated to version 11.4? I see it appears to be in 10.x as of right now.

The changelog for version 11.x (https://www.libav.org/releases/libav-11.4.changelog) states they have implemented native support for HEVC/x265-encoded videos, so I guess it would be cool to Movian to support them.

Here's the link to the update: https://www.libav.org/download/#release_11

Thank you very much for your attention.

Movian is on 11.3 at the moment so it should be fairly up to date.

At least it plays h265 for me (assuming the CPU is capable)

Anything in particular that doesn't work, or do you have a sample stream? On which platform?

#2 Updated by Jacen Solo about 5 years ago

Oh, I'm sorry, I was looking through the update to the files and saw a mention of libav v10, must have slipped my grasp.

I tried with this file (http://vids.h265files.com/video-h265.mkv) on PS3 and a few files from Torrentz.

I figure PS3's CPU isn't capable of playing H265 then...

BTW may I ask you something unrelated: Is it too hard to make a plugin that mirrors Android's Movian playback to the PS3's Movian?

I'm working on a pretty cool solution for this, not sure it will make the 5.0 cut though.

Seriously? :) Can we know more?
