Is there any chance we can get HEVC/H.265 support implemented into Haiku anytime soon using the latest FFmpeg decoders? As of October 16, 2013 FFmpeg now supports it.
From the Phoronix website(October 16, 2013 ):
FFmpeg developers are now using OpenHEVC as their native H.265 decoder implementation. The latest Git code to FFmpeg now supports H.265 while HEVC demuxing support was also added to the TS, MOV, and Matroska demuxers.
I have tested several HEVC sample clips in Haiku 4.1a4, using Haiku Media Player without success - good audio, but no video (black screen).
