what pc to play HEVC files on

if i have an amd fx-8150 and it wont play the hevc video files from the gopro7 because a 4.3ghz cpu is too slow even if i have all the hevc codecs on this pc will an intel 9900k play them

Re: what pc to play HEVC files on

I have Intel i7-7500u which is much slower than your fx-8150 and my laptop plays HEVC files just fine. So there must be something wrong with yout computer.

Re: what pc to play HEVC files on

Hey @mika7171

I have the same problem as thatsodd. Only it's for my iPhone. I have set the pictures and videos to be compatible with other devices. But still, on GoPro website explains what's HEVC and what system works with it. It did said that Windows 10 should be able to handle it. I can hear the audio playing but there's no video or picture. This problem was mentioned earlier and someone said Windows 10 took it out due to it being expensive (doesn't seem right). I can get the codec but that'll cost me $0.99. Pretty cheap but why should I need to pay for it?

Re: what pc to play HEVC files on

it could be because your cpu was launched in 2016 and mine was 2011

Re: what pc to play HEVC files on

In terms of choppy videos, in my case, choppy videos occur because i was using an old laptop. Not sure of its configurations but could be the problem. I do have some links for you to check out. There's some talk on reddit and stuff on Youtube as well

 

 

An admin replied to this question before. Haven't read it but might help 

https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Apps-for-Desktop/why-does-my-video-playback-choppy/td-p/14066

 

A detailed list from GoPro themselves to help with coppy videos

This video here is regarding video lagging by Micbergsma. He's one of the renown group of people that use GoPro a lot
