The libde265 team released a production version of the popular VLC media player for Windows capable to play HEVC 4K Ultra HD video. Like the Mac OS X version released before VLC plays HEVC video in 4K Ultra HD resolution at a frame rate of 30 fps on a Windows PC. The minimum system requirements for viewing 4K UHD video is a PC with an Intel or AMD CPU equivalent to
The VLC media player with libde265 HEVC video codec is available for download on GitHub:
https://github.com/strukturag/vlc-2.1/releases/latest The .zip version can be used without installation, just extract to any folder and run the "vlc.exe".
The source code changes are available on:

Error message trying to install vlc-2.1.4-libde265-win64.exe file
VLC media player 2.1.4 Setup
Unable to elevate, error
Please try to run this installer with admin privileges
I have tried with admin privileges… still the same issue.
Same problem here.
The 32 bit version presents the same issue.
Somebody could help?
GH4 4k Mov files have crashed all the versions of VLC player that I have tried.
Why does it work with the old Windows Media Player and not VLC?
OK I got VLC 1.4 (64bit) to work after I uninstalled the 32 bit version that was default
So the 4K files are working for you now? Do you have an example we could use to reproduce the crash in the 32bit version (which version of Windows are you running)?
doesn´t work !
you need exmplayer if you want to have a working Player !
same here with 64bit, Norton anti virus removed the 64bit EXE. I allowed it, but I get errors
What message is shown by Norton and what did it find in the exe?
work fine,, to decode HEVC Encoded video files with 1080p on my Netbook. thanks
First of all no one smart uses 32-bit ANYTHING anymore. You need the 64-bit versions of EVERYTHING, PERIOD.
Also 30 frames per second is what HDMI uses for 4K, but to get TRUE 4K Ultra HD at 60 frames per second, you need the graphics card that uses a DisplayPort, at least version 1.2, and a 4k Ultra HD monitor, also with a DisplayPort. That is the ONLY way to get TRUE 4K Ultra HD at 60 frames per second from a PC or even a player.
No, that’s wrong. HDMI 2.0 can do true 4K@60Hz 4:4:4 and most modern graphics cards (Nvidia 900, 1000 and AMD 480 and 500 series) all have HDMI 2.0 capabilities. Please do research before wrongly informing people. Nvidia 700 series and below only have HDMI 1.4 so they can do 4K@30Hz 4:4:4 or 4K@60Hz 4:2:0
Thanks for your good work.
I just want to make sure if hevc data in a rtsp stream is supported? I had tried .265 file, it works
Does current support tile mode decoding?
It break downs in decoding HM12.0 bit stream with tile mode enable.
Is this normal?
Tile mode should be fully supported and I’m not aware of any problems with it. Could you please send us a short bitstream that is not working for you.
I have the same question as Wesley.
I put my bitstream as following:
Is there any plan to implement this on the current release?
Works fine with GoPro 4k videos but in video settings you have to change automatic with DirectX(Direct Draw). Thank you!
