    Not sure if I am right but for audio I am sure vlc uses its own codecs so I must wonder are they using their own codecs as well . Plus I have a fhd+ display and I am able to view downloaded 4k content (I think it'd h265  though)

    Yeah, it doesn't depend on the screen, more on the cpu+gpu combo. The one OP had didn't seem to support 4k hardware decoding. 
    If you have a FHD+ display, it sounds like an higher end phone, with a better chipset.

    The SoC in the A10e only supports hardware accelerated decoding up to 1080p.
    You could try software decoding but there is a risk that your CPU might not be able to handle it. It will also eat your battery right up and make your phone really hot.
     
    It's (typically) not the CPU cores decoding video. There is specialized hardware in the chip that only deals with decoding video, and those can be rather picky with what formats, resolutions and framerates they support.
    Also, it's worth noting that your CPU is a 2+6 big.LITTLE configuration. It has 8 physical cores, but only 2 of those cores are high performance. The other 6 are small and slow, but energy efficient.
     
     
     
    I don't get this comment or why you are linking to the Android supported media formats page.
    The settings used are valid (like you said, 5.2). It's just that the particular SoC in OP's phone doesn't support it. Plenty of chips on the market do support it and would play it (in hardware) just fine. It has nothing to do with Android limitations or some invalid profile settings. It's purely a hardware limitation in this particular SoC, like you said later in the post:
     
    I am worried that making comments like that, where you start bringing up profiles as a reason for why it isn't working and linking to Android's supported formats page will give people the wrong ideas like "Android doesn't support the 4.2 AVC profile", which it does.

    IBM_THINKPAD_R51 reacted to Kisai in Unsupported Video Codec on VLC Andriod   
    Because VLC is an App? It's absolutely correct that "some Android devices" don't support 4K video because they don't support 5.2 profile with AVC, because AVC was not intended for 4K video so whatever decoder block in the SoC likely doesn't recognize it if it was only intended to play 1080p video which is 4.2. 
     
    Believe me I tried finding actual specs on the chip before posting that (there were no comments on the thread when I started) and the only place it's really mentioned is on the CPU's marketing page, and even then vague. Which is a problem with all Android devices. "Will X device play Y video?" Only if it has a hardware codec to play it or is somehow powerful enough to do it in software with a player that will do it in software and have to rescale it, it's likely the device doesn't have enough memory to do so.

    Well, that's a problem with ALL devices, if you count it as a problem.
    It's not exclusive to Android devices.

    IBM_THINKPAD_R51 reacted to Zodiark1593 in Unsupported Video Codec on VLC Andriod   
    Clearly, you need to encode the video at different settings. The SoC appears to lack support for this codec, and the CPU certainly won’t handle it in software. Try 1080P with AVC Profile 4.2. Keep bit rates at about 40 mbps or lower (Blu Ray spec essentially, which is very compatible). 
     
    You may also try 1080P HEVC 8-bit as well as most devices can handle this in hardware too.

    Well in that case changing the FSB speed isn't going to help if you won't supply any more voltage. Keep it at stock, you would see little to no performance difference and this system is still very heavily CPU bottlenecked.

    Hi, thanks, I solved it in the end (see above).
    The Web Media Extensions app component in the Microsoft Store needed updating to fix the issue.
     
    I have Microsoft Store auto updates disabled; for some reason it appears Microsoft decided to include this system update as part of the Store and not Windows Update ?

    IBM_THINKPAD_R51 reacted to Windows7ge in What does this BIOS option mean???   
    I can only throw out an educated guess but maybe @leadeater can provide a better/more correct answer.
     
    NUMA nodes are effectively CPU's paired with memory banks. Depending on how the server is configured information CPU1 may need from memory could be located in CPU2's memory banks which it then needs to fetch. Depending on the task this could reduce performance. Isolating the NUMA nodes forces data for CPU1 to remain in CPU1's memory bank and CPU2's to remain in CPU2's memory bank. For tasks like virtualization this can help a lot.
     
    That's just my guess by what it means when it says NUMA Split Mode.

    IBM_THINKPAD_R51 reacted to Mira Yurizaki in Why doesn't applications use my second physical CPU   
    It's because of an issue called non-uniform memory access (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-uniform_memory_access). Imagine if the application was running on CPU 1 but the data it wants is on RAM that's handled by CPU 2. It's going to take much longer to access it. You could have the system move the contents over, but what if the application starts running on CPU 2 because everything on CPU 1 was too busy? Now that data has to be moved back. Either way for high performance applications like games, this can become an issue.
     
    So to avoid this problem altogether, a lot of applications simply don't allow themselves to be run on multiple processors. This is less of a problem with multiple cores because memory access is uniform across all the cores in a processor (except for Threadripper, which has the NUMA problem).

    Yes. Multi-CPU has to do with scaling, multithread has to do with simple thread count.
     
    It is possible to make applications use the second CPU if you force it to do so in Windows; for example you can run browsers and other applications like Spotify or Discord off of one CPU, and run all your games on the other CPU. You can't force an application to run partially on one CPU and partially on the other CPU, though.

    IBM_THINKPAD_R51 reacted to LogicalDrm in screen capturing lowers FPS a lot   
    You should try another software. FRAPS hasn't been updated in 6 years. I don't think it has very good optimization for multicores beyond dual core, and none to hyper-threading or any other current mainstream tech.
     
    OBS, DXtory, probably XSplit too are updated and better optimized for modern hardware.
     
    If you want to continue with FRAPS, set fps target to 120. The way FRAPS works is that the target fps is what it locks to. That will be enough for you to play with and still get decent size files.
