H.265/X265/HEVC Support Status in KMPlayer

Camille Wesley No Comment

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.
