If you are using an Nvidia card with VDPAU, then you may need to
create a profile that will play H.265 using the CPU to decode.  MythTV
does not yet support H.265 GPU decoding, although I think I saw a
message where the dev doing the video decoding was looking at
implementing it in v30.  And older Nvidia cards do not do H.265
either.  You do need a decent CPU to do H.265 decoding also.  I do not
know if the decoding code is multithreaded - if it is not, then you
need a fast CPU rather than multicore, as only one core will be used.
