Hi there, I was understanding how the MX Player handle the Decoding settings for various types of Video Formats.

I figured out that on default settings all videos are played by HW DECODER And if it fails then SW OR HW+ DECODER is used.

Android Media Framework supports H.265 VIDEO IN ONLY MPEG-4 CONTAINER as
https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/media/media-formats.html

So when I play H.265 Video in MKV CONTAINER It is still played via HW Decoder in MX Player.

How??

Thanks for sharing your findings with us.

In most of the modern Android devices, android media framework can handle HEVC videos streams on Matroska container natively. It seems that this documentation is not updated to modern android versions or it is applicable only to nexus and pixel devices.
