H.265/X265/HEVC Support Status in KMPlayer

Camille Wesley No Comments

The KMPlayer is a versatile media player which can cover various types of container format such as VCD, DVD, AVI, MKV, Ogg Theora, OGM, 3GP, MPEG-1/2/4, WMV, RealMedia, and QuickTime among others. However, KMPlayer doesn’t support the new H.265/HEVC/x265 codec video files although H.265 codec video is getting more and more common in video encoding and compressing. To play H.265/HEVC video on KMPlayer, you need to transcode H.265 video to KMPlayer playable video.

Rip Blu-ray to Watch in KMPlayer on computer

Camille Wesley No Comments

‘KMPlayer’ is my favorite multimedia player for the Windows platform. It’s completely free, supports playing almost all the popular audio/video codecs and container formats. After they released the version which brought the Blu-ray support, added support for few codecs, have fixed a lot of AVI and few more bug fixes as usual. Hence, many people like to play Blu-ray movies with KMPlayer on computer. 

However, not everyone can watch Blu-ray with KMPlayer on computer, troubles will appear from time to time. Some feedback unveiled that when some people were trying to play a Bluray on KMP but the sound was really messed up and the video was running extremely fast. 

Simply to solve the problem. First navigate to: ‘[F2] > Video Processing > General (tab)’ & Set ‘KMP Video Transform Filter’ to ‘Always Use’. If that doesn’t fix it, try switching to Gabest MPEG-TS Splitter at ‘[F2] > Filter Control > Splitter > General (tab)’. 

Generally, the part can do the trick. But if you have large Blu-ray movies and are always meeting Blu-ray playback issue with KMPlayer on computer. I do suggest you to rip Blu-ray to another file format that KMP supports to enjoy on computer. You can backup Blu-ray to computer hard disc then stream Blu-ray movies with KMP without using Blu-ray discs any more.

To reach the goal, a Blu-ray Ripper <Blu-ray Ripper Software vs. Blu-ray Copy Software> is recommended here –  Pavtube ByteCopy. This program can effectively remove all copy & region protection from Blu-ray disc and convert to MKV format for playing on computer with KMplayer.

Besides backing up Blu-ray to MKV format for KMplayer, the program also gives you the chance to adjust video bitrate/frame rate, audio codec,/channel, and adjust display aspect ratio.
