I gotta say video qualty for a given size is just insane, hopefully things can get for a better in a future.
well, the PI2 has no HW decoder for HEVC, so it's software decoded in CPU, and high efficency codecs demand quite some CPU power. But 720p HEVC encoded with "fastdecode" option should play just fine - at least my test encode worked just fine. Even a 1080p movie worked not too bad - at least lower bitrate scenes played just fine, which IMO is a incredible achievement by the devs so far.
