H265 / VLC backend "unsupported codec"

by earhere » Wed Sep 27, 2017 8:31 pm

Hi,

Using GoPro VR 3.0.0 RC1 on Win10 Pro with VLC backend 2.2.6.
When loading a H265 encoded file, I can only play back with WindowsMediaFoundation (very jittery with many dropped frames).

With VLC backend selected, I'm getting a "unsupported codec" message and the video won't even start. VLC backend 2.2.6 is installed and same video file does play back in the VLC player itself.

UPDATE: This happens only on Windows, on Mac the VLC backend will play back the H265 file...

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hello,

I'm having a similar problem. I rendered some videos in H265 and they work fine on my PC, but not on my MacBook Pro. It doesn't work in VLC (unsupported codec) or AV (failure to load media). The video is 10 minutes long, and about 5gb.

I tried them in 2.3 and it will try to load, but then the video will stop after a couple of seconds and then the video will turn grey and pixellate.

It's Omni video that's been run through AV3, exported as .mov, then encoded in Premiere as H265.

The 2016 MacBook Pro has the following specs:

15-inch
2.7 GHz i7
16 GB
Radeon Pro 455 2048 MB
Intel HD Graphics 530 1536 MB

Any Ideas?

H.265 is only supported on macOS 10.13 High Sierra. It is your current OS ?

Also natively supported on Windows 10.

Best,
