How to Play H.265 Videos on iPad Air/Mini 2

H.265/HEVC is really something. Not only does it enable media such as Netflix and Apple to stream 4K contents over the internet more effective, but also allows users to play Full HD and even 4K contents on smartphones or tablets feasibly. Speaking of tablets, Apple iPad is probably the first one comes into our mind. As a solid machine, the iPad is capable of providing amazing content viewing experience. Granted, Full HD streaming to iPad is possible with H.264, however, when comes to stream H.265 to iPad, we will have a unpleasant experience since iPad, including the newest iPad Air and Mini 2, cannot support H.265 file currently. Besides, H.265 decoding requires much CPU, which means it might eat up more battery power of the iPad.
