            you should be able to play H265/VP9 maybe even AV1 as long as we are talking about 24 fps movies
            for YouTube you might need to install h264ify, that will get you smooth 1080p60 playback with hardware acceleration
            but... you could also just download x264 encoded stuff and bypass the problem entirely, it's rare to find something that's only available with newer codecs
            you will waste more bandwidth obviously

            that's h264, with the exception that it's using some fancy 4:4:4 profile instead of regular 4:2:0, which hardware decoders can't handle
            the answer is most likely yes, should be easy to decode in software even on very old cpus, especially considering it's just 720p/24
            >my tablet can't play it
            do you mean it lags, or do you mean it won't open it at all? you should just install mpv if it's the latter, such obscure h264 profiles were probably not supported natively on older versions of android

            he was asking about my laptop, since my laptop is slower/older than his, whether it works here is relevant for him, since there's a high chance his laptop is faster than mine
            this having no hardware decoder is also relevant, in the case the video can't use it, which turned out to be true
            my original example was deliberately about software decoding, since older hardware may not have hardware decoding for the formats he wants to use (10bit, hevc, vp9, av1...), which he did hint at in OP ("weird codecs")

            ...correct, but what you were saying is misleading, as the lack of hardware decode would only apply to such specific videos in the case of a 3rd/4th gen cpu, the "this laptop has no usable h.264 hardware decoder" isn't relevant to him

            >10bit is common with anime torrents despite the lack of hardware decoder support
            you should probably clarify that this only applies to h264, every h265 hardware decoder can play 10 bit in hardware just fine, as it's part of the main profile, same goes for av1

            i agree, i should have been more specific. in fairness though if a laptop is new enough to have an h.265 hardware decoder, it's surely also new enough to be able to handle it in software, too. my laptop is 5 years older than H.265

            of course, it's playing in up to date mpv, nothing's disabled, didn't even do any fancy tricks like disabling h.264's in-loop deblocking filter which was a common trick for even older computers
            that one does push it quite a bit, especially at these bitrates, higher bitrate video is harder to decode all else equal. funnily enough the only part that couldn't keep up was the wifi, with medium reception and an 11n card i had to let it buffer before playing, lol

            didn't you make webms that show it playing 1080p30 av1 just fine??? if it can do that I have no idea why you would even bother to check if it plays different 1080p24 h264 files
            [...]
            ??? why the frick would the sound not work when it's literally 100.000 times faster to decode than video and media players from the early 2000s running rockbox can decode flac/opus/aac just fine

            >didn't you make webms that show it playing 1080p30 av1 just fine???
            yea.. well i felt like it, besides, i hadn't played anything high bitrate like this so it's worth checking

            also 1080p30 was where it started to drop some frames
            it did a tom scott video at 1080p25 fine
            here's a complex 1080p24 video, it can't go very high in bitrate before it maxes out with av1, but it's still pretty cool imo that this laptop core2duo can do anything involving "1080p" and "av1" together

            pretty sure those av1 movie torrents would be fine, keeping in mind 1080p movies are actually 1920x800, so lower resolution than this youtube video

            tablet cpus are generally much slower than laptop cpus, the only reason it plays other videos well is because of hardware video decoders, which it can't use for that example as most hardware decoders only support yuv420p[8], since that's what most video is (for ex. bluray)

            to be clear, most "non-pirate" video, stuff like 10bit is common with anime torrents, as there are advantages to using it despite the lack of hardware decoder support

        Let's be honest here, lack of AV1 hardware acceleration is a HUGE dealbreaker for most people as streaming websites switch to AV1 especially things like geforce now which sucked ass before they switched to AV1.

        Nothing mirrors this reality better than apple's disastrous M2 vision pro blunder.

          >as streaming websites switch to AV1
          ...this won't happen anytime soon
          youtube still offers h264 and vp9, <1% of videos are available in av1, lots of stuff is still h264 only.
          netflix, prime video, and every other goyslop provider still has h264/h265 available, most of their catalog is also not available in av1, the piracy scene is also still mostly x264, twitch is still h264 and will only add av1/hevc streaming for high resolutions if the streamer has a compatible nvidia card and the right settings, they will keep h264 for lower res streams no matter what, and to top it all off, 99% of porn sites are also h264 only
          av1 isn't becoming mandatory anytime soon, and even a switch to h265/vp9 is very unlikely in the next 10 years

            first of all, this only applies if you don't have a good connection, having a frickton of bandwidth bypasses this problem entirely, and I'm pretty sure streaming good quality 1080p60 h264 even with an hardware encoder shouldn't need more than 25 mbps
            second... who the frick is going to do low latency cloud gaming on a fricking 20 year old laptop? this is a scenario even more nitpicky than the keyframe extraction bullshit, are you going to quit with this garbage anytime soon?
            and also, you are moving the goalpost, game streaming will still be available with h264 and h265, av1 isn't becoming "mandatory" for it to work
            you could've said "you know how much time it takes to download a movie on a slow connection? av1 fixes that" or anything else to have the exact same point but with a more common scenario

            No it doesn't you simpleton, H264 is inherently a laggy video codec no matter what bitrate you use. AV1 was specifically optimized for streaming. You're not going to get 30 milliseconds of latency with H264 even over ethernet.

            >H264 is inherently a laggy video codec no matter what bitrate you use
            what does that even mean, it's faster to encode/decode than av1, as long as you have enough bandwidth there's no reason why it would be laggy, do you have any data as proof of this? of course you don't
            >AV1 was specifically optimized for streaming
            ...wow, some other meaningless stuff
            this is like saying "this motherboard is optimized for gaming"
            as if h264 wasn't literally born as a codec for video streaming over the internet as well...
            >You're not going to get 30 milliseconds of latency with H264 even over ethernet.
            again, any data?
            btw, nowhere does the article you linked to state that av1 is what makes "nvidia reflex" available, it only says that it's coming at the same time that av1 is, and nvidia's graph showing how it works doesn't mention any video codec at all, you are literally pulling stuff out of your own ass as always
            there's no reason why low latency video wouldn't be possible with h264, and you have no data to back that up, kys
