Hardware Decoding

Hardware Decoding

Hardware decoding provides better decoding performance and lower CPU usage when you play high definition videos during live view or playback.

Tap More > Settings to enter the Settings page, and then enable the function.

  • The function is available only when the phone OS is iOS 8.0 or later version.

  • Hardware decoding is only supported when the resolution is 704*576, 704*480, 640*480, 1024*768, 1280*720, 1280*960, 1920*1080, 2048*1536, or 2560*1920. For other resolutions, only software decoding is supported.

  • For H.265 video compression, hardware decoding is not supported.

  • Hardware decoding should be supported by the device. If not, the device will adopt software decoding by default.
