The app can already play 4K video and HEVC. MX Player uses ffmpeg as a base decoder, so whatever ffmpeg can play, MX can play. Of course, 4K and HEVC support isn't optimal by anyone right now, so don't expect stellar results.

Expect hardware-decode of HEVC/X265

When I play a 1080p vedio of HEVC/X265 movie with mxplayer 1.7.32, the player just only can play it using software decode, and the playing is very slowly.
I try to enable hw/+ mode but it failed to play.

So, expect that hard-decode can implement quickly~~~~

Hardware and/or hardware+ decode is not possible until manufacturers make chipsets that support HEVC. Those won't come for at least another year.

You can find a planned production timetable by Qualcomm here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=119

Well, I have Qualcomm 801 that should support HEVC decoding (at 1080p), but it doesn't work. MX can't use HW(+) on HEVC videos, and it's not even in the list that I can get using Android API (MediaCodecList).

It seems that even if you have chipset with HEVC support you still may need to wait for manufacturer to get it supported. So player developers can't do anything about it.
