Question Seagate Goflex TV H.265 support

Hello everybody,

I'm not sure i ask this in the right forum but i'll ask anyway.

Can a Seagate Goflex TV media player be updated to decode H.265?

If not, can you point to another model/make that does?

This may not be the answer you want but the upcoming Windows 10 will have H.265 support. The Win XD encoder can do H.265 which you can purchase for about 40 bucks and does a nice job of compressing files.

But I think the question relates more to hardware decoding. A PC can support any codec, but depending on your processor it may get bogged down doing so.

KODI (was XBMC) will play (display) X.265, but it seems to require some CPU guts.

Works fine running on a windows PC, renders but stutters running on a Raspberry Pi 2.

Should be fine on a reasonably powered Android platform. Love to hear some experience.
