Cannot play H265 footage anymore AFTER unstalling MS HEVC

Hi,

I am having a weird issue.I have been using Davincie Resolve (Free version, current version 16.2.7) for years now. Mostly for small home video projects. I have already edited tons of iPhone footage with no problem.

My PC is a little older but with optimized media, editing is OK
i7 4790 k
8GB RAM
GTX970

My Windows installation apparently had the HEVC Manufacturer codec already installed.
Today I accidentally installed the HEVC codec, I bought from MS for another system. Since then all my H265 footage shows as "Media Offline" in Resolve.

I uninstalled the bought codec (the original one is still there) rebooted and reinstalled resolve but it still does not work.

I have another machine with a clean Windows installation where I also installed the 0,99c HEVC codec and there I can see that footage in resolve.

I hope anyone can help me with this.

Remove and reinstall the original one? And maybe reboot afterwards.

I was thinking of trying that but thout I might loosse the original one then as you cannot download it anymore, But I guesss at thiss point it does not really matter.

That indeed did it, I uninsstalled the original one, rebooted, still did not work.This I expected though because now I had no codec insstalled. I installed the 1$ codec and it worked again right away, without rebooting.

 

Still annoying I guess this iss why people prefer apple. I had the codec installed and it still does not work. That'ss not even mentioning the weird fact of removing that feature from the OS and charging for it.

And this is exactly why the way Microsoft handles things like that, through their store and with weird installation structures is a bad thing. However glad you fixed it! 

 

Btw, the 0.99 codec is also a scam because you can definitely downloaded it for free, from Microsoft store, even if you never had it installed, another example of how messed up Microsoft's handling of their store is. However, I don't have a link unfortunately, it's on my old phone afaik, and it's pretty hard to find on the store (for me at least) 

 

 

Edit: found the link, but looks like it's "not available" currently, could be because I'm on phone tho.

AFAIK this is only available if you have a prebuilt/laptop and the manufacturer has prepaid the license.

I probably had it because it is a migrated Win 7 license.

PS: this is interesting, it must have reinstalled this by itself, because I definitely installed it when I first booted up the pc which was in 2018, though the date could just be wrong too 🤔
