h265 on my DN2820FYKH NUC

  • Hello together,
    im wondering if someone knows if there will be a way to watch h265 on my NUC with hardware acceleration sometime soon?
    Im on 100% CPU when watching this kind of content at the moment and i don´t want to buy new hardware just because of this.


    Greetings!

    I think your cpu is too weak, also on my haswell chromebox many hevc get stuttering ... now with n3150 cpu hevc same film get 10% of cpu/gpu (hevc 8 bit 1080p)


    if i remember correctyl hevc decoder is from braswell cpu

  • There is no way that some software package like Kodi will magically turn your NUC into having GPU hardware acceleration capabilities for FullHD or 4K HEVC video files playing without a glitch. You will definitely have to buy newer hardware for that. Starting with Braswell or Skylake, or the latest Apollo Lake NUCs. Or a bit cheaper (and smaller) alternative, a S905 chipset based Android box like a Wetek Hub.

  • Well im not talking about magic, i just thought that there maybe is something happening in the kernel that could make this happen.

  • CPU/gpu doesn't have hw support for x265 (instruction set etc)


    And doesn't have enough horse power to decode it via sw


    So my i7 860 overclocked is less powerful with hevc than myv braswell htpc


    You can't transform a Ford Escort in Ferrari just tuning the software ;)
