Not sure what you mean there, since there is definitely a 10-bit HEVC profile, which this file is using - hevc (Main 10) and the codec used is ff-hevc (SW) instead of ff-hevc-vaapi (HW) which I get with hevc (Main). That is presumably the whole point of your hevc10ffmpeg31 branch, so I'm very confused by your comment.

I know that nothing will do hardware decoding of h.264 (Main 10).

I thought that my GPU was capable of decoding 10-bit HEVC, but I might have misremembered according to 229096 (thread) and 230991 (thread). I can't see anythign in the debug log indicating what formats it should be able to decode - it might be hidden amongst all the various graphics capabilities listed.

I think fritsch was referring to the use of "Hi10p" phrasing - which is used to describe the dreaded 10 bit H264 4:2:0 anime format - which has zero hardware decoding support.

10 bit HEVC as used in domestic situations (i.e. 4:2:0) is usually referred to as "HEVC Main 10" - not "Hi10p" (as it is a main, not high, HEVC profile?).
