C Specification

When calling vkGetPhysicalDeviceVideoCapabilitiesKHR to query the capabilities for an H.265 decode profile, the VkVideoCapabilitiesKHR::pNext chain must include a VkVideoDecodeH265CapabilitiesKHR structure that will be filled with the profile-specific capabilities.

The VkVideoDecodeH265CapabilitiesKHR structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_KHR_video_decode_h265
typedef struct VkVideoDecodeH265CapabilitiesKHR {
    VkStructureType         sType;
    void*                   pNext;
    StdVideoH265LevelIdc    maxLevelIdc;
} VkVideoDecodeH265CapabilitiesKHR;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to a structure extending this structure.

  • maxLevelIdc is a StdVideoH265LevelIdc value indicating the maximum H.265 level supported by the profile, where enum constant STD_VIDEO_H265_LEVEL_IDC_<major>_<minor> identifies H.265 level <major>.<minor> as defined in section A.4 of the ITU-T H.265 Specification.


Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkVideoDecodeH265CapabilitiesKHR-sType-sType
