Downloading and playing H.265 videos

Postby user3477 » Thu May 09, 2019 6:18 pm

So I have an Amcrest IP8M-2493EW which is recording using the H.265 codec to an Amcrest NV4108 NVR.

I can watch video play back fine in the Amcrest surveillance pro software.

I am also able to download .dav videos which are viewable in the Amcrest smart player.

The problem is when I try to download H.265 videos as AVI, ASF or MP4 video format they don't play in any well-known video players like windows media player, VLC, and Windows Movie and TV (with the H.265 HVEC codec installed).

I was wondering if it is possible to convert Amcrest H.265 dav videos into a well-known format which doesn't require the use of the Amcrest video player?

The program VideProc will convert Amcrest H.265 DAV files to H.264 MP4 files which play on all video players I've tried.
