I've been a happy MX Player Pro user on my Nexus 7 tablet for a few years now, but it was time to finally get a smartphone, so I "upgraded". Now I can't seem to get the H/W+ or any hardware acceleration working with 10Bit h264 videos on this Xperia M2. 8Bit is fine.

Since H/W+ works with 8Bit, the SoC (Qualcomm MSM8926 Snapdragon 400) seems to be compatible with it. Can H/W+ for 10Bit be enabled in a future update like it was for the old Nexus 7? I don't mind the decoding artifacts, I just don't want to have to transcode video for my mobile devices again.

The reason why you could use HW+ on the old Nexus 7 was because it used a Nvidia Tegra core. Somehow, the developer was able to get some hardware support for 10-bit videos on Tegra devices.

Long story short, 10-bit hardware support is impossible on anything else. You will have to use the SW decoder.

I am not terribly familiar with hardware decoders, but can't you "fool" it by only passing it 8bit instead of the full 10bit? Or will that not result in anything usable? Since there were artifacts on playback with the old nexus, I assumed it was what it did.

I bought the pro version partially because it saved me from transcoding and that was worth the money for me. Not meant as a "gimme my money back", just a bit disappointed. Oh well.

Not sure. Either way, it was a hack more or less that he found to make it work.

I think you are in a wrong forum.
It's the official forum of MX player.
