Computer unable to process 10-bit 4K 4:2:2 HEVC

Hello, I figured this would be the place to ask.

 

My issue is that my computer has serious issues with playing / decoding 10-bit 4K 4:2:2 HEVC video files, I can tell it's also struggling a little with 1080i files if I try and edit it in Premiere,
but it can't even play 2160p in a media player.

I have tried all sorts of codecs and media players, however none of them can get the job done, which is why I think it's a hardware issue.

My PC doesn't have any issues playing 4K ProRes at around 6-700mbps, so it shouldn't be a hard drive issue either.

 

My setup:

CPU: i7-6700 @ 3.40 GHz

Motherboard: ASUS B150M-PLUS

RAM: 32GB DDR4 (dual)

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX1070 MSI 8GB GDDR5

 

I suspect that the CPU is too old, but I'd still love to get a second opinion before I upgrade my setup.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Here is media info for files I have issues with with 2 different types of color primaries and chrome subsampling:

You don't have haradware decoding, you want hardware decoding for the videos to play back well. There is gpu accerlated playback on 11 +12 gen intel and m1 macs currently. 

 

When I'm working with this footage I just convert to prores and work with that footage, and normally delete the orginall files once I know the prores copies are good.

I have a 9700k and rtx2060 win10 and I gave up trying to fix the mess and went back to h.264.  I tried different programs and drivers but it was always just unworkable.  I said f-it, I'll eat the storage.

 

If you find a solution, let us know!

Thank you for the fast reply.

Rendering files in the range of 80-100GB to ProRes is not really an option, but I understand that my only issue would be the CPU that needs to be upgraded to one of the newer generations, so I will look into that.

Thank you

I know a guy who records these files, and he should be able to play them himself without any issues. 

I will try and ask him what his setup is because I am pretty sure he doesn't have some insane setup for it.

convert to prores

How are the file sizes afterwards compared to the hevc?

Not that bad. About the same size in prores 422 compared to my r5s all i 10bit, and about 3x the ipb. Its about 600mbit for 2160p 30fps.
