Is it possible to play h265 videos in electron?


#1

I’ve searched for this online and didn’t find a conclusive answer. From what I understand currently, chromium is using a limited number of codecs to play video because other codecs are proprietary. Is it possible to include the missing codecs into electron? Or if it’s impossible, is it possible to embed VLC into an electron app page ?

I’m also interested in this question. I found this: https://github.com/strukturag/libde265.js
It also provides a demo, how to play HEVC/H.265 with their library. But for me it hangs at “Initializing…”.

Anyone an other idea on how to play HEVC/H.265 in a Electron application?
