HEVC Support?

I just wondered if HEVC video files will be supported at some point?

i also wonder why people don’t search the forum before posting the same question everytime.

short answer … No, the Hardware is Not Capable

A post was split to a new topic: Removed post

Western Digital Media Players are not general purpose devices like a computer. The audio and video codecs they support are limited to the decoding chips that they shipped with. Because HEVC wasn’t finalized until after these devices were manufactured, there is no way these media players will ever play HEVC files. It’s not a firmware thing. It’s a hardware thing. We’ll just have to wait until someone releases a standalone HEVC-compatible media player, and it doesn’t look like Western Digital has the slightest bit of interest in that.
