The web app already has proper hevc detection that has been confirmed on other platforms, so ideally this is already done. For Edge, I know in the past it required you to have hardware that supposed hevc decoding.

I tested it before posting and it didn't work at all. It was transcoded to H264.

 

Any logs/help you require of me I can provide.

We'll allocate more time on it when that version of the browser gets to beta. The hevc check works fine on several other platforms. They may not have perfected it just yet.

It's not a big deal for me, so I'll let it be for now. Just FYI.

I assume you have a GPU that can decode hevc? I doubt they are supporting it in software. Also try different flavors, e.g. 8-bit hevc, 10-bit, etc.

Yes, I have a GTX 1060, I get HW decoding for HEVC normally.

HW decoding/encoding of codecs is a key bulletpoint when I buy video cards.
