C Specification

A video profile supporting H.265 video decode operations is specified by setting VkVideoProfileInfoKHR::videoCodecOperation to VK_VIDEO_CODEC_OPERATION_DECODE_H265_BIT_KHR and adding a VkVideoDecodeH265ProfileInfoKHR structure to the VkVideoProfileInfoKHR::pNext chain.

The VkVideoDecodeH265ProfileInfoKHR structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_KHR_video_decode_h265
typedef struct VkVideoDecodeH265ProfileInfoKHR {
    VkStructureType           sType;
    const void*               pNext;
    StdVideoH265ProfileIdc    stdProfileIdc;
} VkVideoDecodeH265ProfileInfoKHR;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • stdProfileIdc is a StdVideoH265ProfileIdc value specifying the H.265 codec profile IDC, as defined in section A.3 of the ITU-T H.265 Specification.


Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkVideoDecodeH265ProfileInfoKHR-sType-sType
