Thank you for joining the Intel communities.
To be honest with you I’m not sure if the DVDFAB will support HEVC software decoding, at this point I suggest checking the requirements or configuration that you need to do with DVDFAB developers to find out which configuration needs to be done.
Please see if the documentation about the graphics from Intel can help you.
6th Generation Intel® Processor Datasheet for U/Y-Platforms
See page 28
Thanks for your reply.
As you can see from my DVDFAB preferences settings, it can decode and encode HEVC but only software.
Skylake cpu supports HEVC hardware decode and encode functionality but I don't understand if need to activate they or not.
Could you tell me if there is a way to know if Intel Quick Sync is working?
Do you know if there is a video converter that supports HEVC hardware encoding and decoding?
You can try use this player: PotPlayer 1.6.60136 / 1.6.60286 Beta - Download
It has option for software and hardware decoding. But you need to set it up for hardware decoding that if it is supported by the CPU.
On my i7 6700k it works ok.
Ok I did some testing, and I found a problem.
Hardware decoding worked only when I was using DXVA hardware acceleration, but not when using quicksync.
So it seems that the quicksync it doesn't encode/decode H.265 content ...
I don't know if it is a bug in driver. I think Ivan can tell us why H.265 codec is not working when using quicksync directly, because in that documentation, on page 28, it's written that it should support it .
I've tried MediaCoder,
from the site: H.264/H.265 GPU accelerated encoding (QuickSync, NVENC, CUDA)
but when I selected h.265 Intel GPU encode I obteined at start "encoder error"
I'm afraid there're driver problems!
Last week I've changed my old graphics card with Nvidia GTX 960,
DVDFAB and MEDIACODER hardware hevc encoding worked perfectly!
Let me know.
Just an update, this issue is still under investigation; we appreciate your patience on this matter.
We have positive results encoding with an application named StaxRip.
Also, there is a new driver version that you can download.
Intel® Graphics Driver for Windows® 10 and Windows 7*/8.1* [15.40]
We continue investigating, but if you feel like it, you can try with that app as well and report back to us.

Thanks iltenente for reporting to us the results after updating the driver.
