v21 Black screen on HEVC 10-bits video
Kodi v21 is showing a black screen on one of my MKV movie file. I need to disable hardware DXVA2 to play it properly but then the CPU will be 100% utilized.

The same file can be played on VLC or PotPlayer + LAV with hardware decoding no problem. My media PC is using 10th gen Intel UHD (Celeron N5105) which supports HEVC 10-bit 4:2:0.
