4K Video files Don't Play Properly

    I've been trying to play 4K files on my Minix but they play back with a weird garbled purplish hue when using XBMC 16.3 (Same thing when using VLC). Only seems to happen with H.265 MKV files (I tried H.264 MP4 files and they seem to play properly). When connected directly to my 4K smart TV via external HDD, the files play perfectly so I know the files are not the issue.

    Resolution on minix is set to 4K2K 30p.

    Exact file spec that is causing issues:

    Codec: MPEG-H Part2/HEVC (H.265)
    Resolution: 3840 x 1600
    Frame Rate: 23.976215
    Decoded Format: Planar 4:2:0 YUV 10-bit LE

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Ahhhhh OK. I've just been reading up on this and realised it can't play those files. Thanks for the quick response!

    Now I'm looking at either the Minix U9-H or some people are saying the Nvidia Shield....
