All giddy with delight... bought my GTX950 for the HTPC so I could run rips in H.265. Except, when I try to play it, WMC says it can't. What am I missing? :eek:

Nah, none of the open source applications (VLC, Kodi, etc.) can use the HEVC decoder in the GTX 950/960s yet because FFMPEG doesn't have driver support (its close though):

Here is a good article of how to use LAV codecs to get the job done:

Thank you for that... Shark007 fixed it up. :thumbsup:

maybe vlc?
Actually, VLC did work without problems... it's just not my preferred viewer; but it's nice to know it's there.
