i tried this. it works fine on linux, so i'm a little confused why it would fail on windows. i have no windows dev env so i can't look into it more sadly.

Could this be related?
https://github.com/strukturag/libheif/issues/90

Otherwise, any way to help out with more logging or with debugging environment?

No idea but perhaps more likely https://github.com/strukturag/libheif/issues/208 which was fixed by https://github.com/strukturag/libde265/pull/257

Maybe that issue could give @spiff a clue as to what could be going wrong, assuming it is connected that is.

OK seems like that was due to trying a 32bit DLL on 64bit kodi.

Finally have HEIC/HEIF pics from iPhone working in Kodi Leia. Here is the commit: https://github.com/kongomongo/imagedecod...2a4c348942

I am not sure anymore if the bump to libheif or the libde265 made it working due to tedious build issues as a newb...

While I don't feel great putting binaries up, if you trust this you can try these (install via "install zip addon")
