Cannot play a .mkv file


For some reason I cannot play a .mkv file. I have already updated to the latest release. I have uploaded the full log for your reference:

Please help!



You’re trying to play a x265/hevc file. The RPI only has x264/AVC HW support. It’s not powerfull enough to play (at least 1080p) x265.

You could upgrade to a Vero4K+ which plays those just fine :wink:

I see… Thanks for your reply.
