Is there a way to implement H.265 playback in to the web browser, whitout it transcoding it to H.264?

 

Found Open Source Software http://www.libde265.org/ is there a way to implement it, or is it far into the future Whit H.265?

The browser has to support it. As far as I am aware, not many do. Seems Google and YouTube are going with VP9. VP9 is also supported by some ARM processors as far as I am aware. VP9 also has an advantage in streaming capabilities. This means that even though H.265 gives a better image overall that VP9 might end up the supported standard in browsers.

FFMPEG, which is used for video playback by the server, already supports H.265.

yes, our api can output both h265 and vp9, but as stated above, it's the client devices that need to be updated to support them as well

Many ARM processors and GPUs support H.265/HEVC as well, but its up to the browsers as Koleckai Silvestri says. But with FFMPEG adding support, that might happen sooner than later.
