HEVC Codec support silently dropped into Chrome

I’m curious to hear whether your devices support HEVC or not - please leave a comment :heart:


Love it! Just a “small bit” of waiting. :rofl:

Trying it out now in my auto-updated Chrome 105 browser on Mac OS.

This is awesome!! Curious how well it works and if there are any restrictions, or if Google takes it away from us again.

The main drawback we can see so far is that HEVC with Widevine DRM is not supported. That will be a major blocker for premium content providers, unfortunately. It’s unclear if Google will add DRM support for HEVC in the future or not.
