C2 refuses to play any h265 video I throw at it

Unread postby robvdl » Thu Aug 02, 2018 3:21 pm

I had a C1 and recently upgraded to a C2 in order to play H265 videos in Kodi. I am using Android because with my older C1 it had better video codec compatibility on Android than Ubuntu. I thought that would be the same with the C2.

However I cannot get a single H265 video working on Kodi on Android at all, be it a 10 bit, 8 bit, nothing that is H265 works... the video just doesn't play at all.

I am wondering if I load it with LibreElec I am going to have better luck or not, I'm a little disappointed because I purchased the C2 for the purpose of playing H265 as it stated it had H265 support but why can I just not get it going and other people can.

Or do I have to wait for Kodi 18 to sort this out??? It seems other people can run H265 on Kodi on Ubuntu, so maybe it is an Android thing?

I could play H.265 video files on Ubuntu and LibreElec.
We will check Android later.

BTW, how was a stock media player in C2 Android?

Hi there!

We tested H.265 Video on the kodi 17.6 from the Play Store on the Android 6.0.1 V4.3 and it works fine.

please check your android and kodi version. :)

And, if your android is not recent version, please update the android.

However if video not work after update the android, please let me know your video source's spec.

I tested 4k h.265 videos. there were 4k-60fps, 4k-10bits-60fps and so on. :)
