[Q] HEVC on supported Android TV devices: Do you transcode?

  • Hi

    What do you do when streaming HEVC to Android TV devices with hardware HEVC decode support? Like Nvidia Shield TV and MXQ Pro S905?

    Would be neat if you didn't trancode it. My "server" (in this case my laptop) really have problems transcoding h265 to h264 without lagging.

    Cheers :)

  • afaik videostream is chromecast only. Using an app that makes android devices look like a chromecast are still bound by chromecast profiles, thus no hevc support.
