Published

I reset my laptop and I noticed that I couldn’t play HEVC videos unless I installed the HEVC Video Extensions for $1. It used to be free if you got it from the device manufacturer, but it isn’t anymore. A quick online search later, I found these instructions by /u/quilo on Reddit on how to install the HEVC codec from the device manufacturer:

You can still get it for free. Just installed myself. This workaround still works.

Copy/paste this link into the browser:

ms-windows-store://pdp/?ProductId=9n4wgh0z6vhq

Or, open command prompt, and type/paste:

start ms-windows-store://pdp/?ProductId=9n4wgh0z6vhq

Click “Install”.
