Leader of Microsoft’s Operating Systems Group’s Data and Fundamentals Team, Gabriel Aul, today confirmed (via twitter) that the upcoming Windows 10, will support the still new, HEVC Video compression format.

HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) will be supported out-of-the-box in Windows 10, Aul tweeted.

The HEVC format succeeds the well known H.264/MPEG-4 AVC video compression standard. While the MPEG-4 AVC format is the current, and most commonly used standard for internet streaming, the format became popular, specially due to its use in Blu-Ray discs.

The new, HEVC compression format is even better. It lets even 4K resolution videos to be compressed and streamed on an Internet connection. Not only this,  It can support 8K UHD and resolutions up to 8192 x 4320.

So, if you do plan to stream and watch 4K HD videos through a device, you definitely have Windows 10 at your disposal.
