Receiver app (android) that can handle HEVC if supported

  • Since google is slow implementing hevc support in their cast api (probably because of licensing and stuff) would it make sense to create an videostream receiver application that could use android tv boxes built in hardware support for different codecs? Like HEVC?

    There are multiple android tv boxes supporting hardware decoding of HEVC, without googling i know of:

    • nvidia Shield TV (existing, and also v2 which is coming soon)
    • Xiaomi Mi Box (recent models)
    • Various android tv boxes using s912, s905+ SoCs

    Cheers, Olav
