HEVC / 720p resolution at about a Max of 2.5Mb/s bitrate is the limit on an Overclocked RPi2.

Thanks, I'll stick with x264 for now then. I might try re-encoding this file down to 720p to test it though.

I heard called 'OrangePi' that support H265.

Good luck getting any ongoing support with that... (It also uses an Allwinner SoC. Allwinner have been notoriously bad at releasing OpenSource support for their hardware acceleration drivers - so getting the H264, H265, VC-1 or MPEG2 hardware acceleration to work in Kodi under Linux has been an ongoing issue. They also have a history of alleged GPL abuse - facing accusations of releasing software containing GPL code commercially, but then not releasing the sources - which legally they are required to do. There are constant 'we will change' statements from them - but I'm not sure much has yet...)

None of the other ARM platforms has the level of support that the Pi / Pi 2 have. Sure, other ARM platforms may have better specs on paper, but they don't have Kodi developers who know the hardware anywhere near as well.
