I can play 4k HEVC streams without any jittering or stuttering and there is no transcoding or buffering present.
Using a 78HU8500 Samsung TV, I am seeing issues with 1080p HEVC material.
There is no buffering problem, nor is the video transcoded to H264, but the video is somehow jittering and not very smooth. Is this a problem of the TV or maybe Samsungs software?
When the video is transcoded to H264, when subtitles are burnt in, I don't see any jitter at all and the video is played smoothly.
I could just transcode all videos up front to H264 but it seems like more and more video files are in HEVC.
Additional information, the same files are playing fine on a Nvidia Shield TV with direct play connected to the same TV.
