Is iTunes able to play H.265(HEVC)?

I wanna add and play some H.265 files in iTunes, but I can't find out any info about if iTunes is able to play H.265/High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC)format. Searching further, I got some hints. 




Apple supports H.265, but so far only in FaceTime on iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. From iTunes menu, H.265 video files can not be read since iTunes have no ability of playing HEVC/H.265 format. Sometimes, even you can add H.265 to iTunes, you still cannot sync them to Apple devices. That is to say, users can't stream or even play H.265 video outside of the FaceTime environment. A quick workaround to get H.265 to iTunes for playback and syncing is toencode H.265 to H.264 video. 

Brorsoft Video Converter for Mac is the ideal tool can help you out. It can convert any type videos like DivX, MKV, MPG as well as H.265 to iTunes supported format without losing any video quality. Apart from that, its built-in editor can help users to do some basic editing work before conversion, like trimming, cutting, adding audio information/watermark etc. What's more, it also offers the optimal profiles for iPhone, iPad, iPod, Apple TV and more. For Windows users, you can get Brorsoft Video Converter. Download the program to start the H.265 to iTunes conversion task.

Install and run the best H.265 to iTunes converter and transfer your H.265 movies or video recordings like from Samsung NX1/NX500 to the program. 


2. Select iTunes supported format 

Since iTunes supports H.264 MP4, M4V and MOV formats, you can click Format bar and choose any of the three from Common Video as the output file format. If you want to add MP4 to iTunes for syncing to iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, you can directly select a format from special device column like iPad. 


Tip: Click the Settings icon to adjust video and audio parameters, like audio&video bitrate, video size, channel as you need. 

3. Start H.265 to iTunes conversion 

Click the "Convert" icon after all settings, and the H.265 Video Converter will start transcoding H.265 to iTunes preferred format immediately. 

4. Import H.265 files to iTunes library 

After the conversion, get the output files by clicking the Open button. Now you can open iTunes 12 and go to File > Add File to Library or directly drag&drop the converted H.265 video to iTunes.

    It has been simply incredibly generous with you to provide openly what exactly many individuals would’ve marketed for an ebook to end up making some cash for their end, primarily given that you could have tried it in the event you wanted.
