C Specification

The VkVideoDecodeH265CapabilitiesEXT structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_EXT_video_decode_h265
typedef struct VkVideoDecodeH265CapabilitiesEXT {
    VkStructureType          sType;
    void*                    pNext;
    uint32_t                 maxLevel;
    VkExtensionProperties    stdExtensionVersion;
} VkVideoDecodeH265CapabilitiesEXT;


When using vkGetPhysicalDeviceVideoCapabilitiesKHR to query the capabilities for the parameter videoCodecOperation specified as VK_VIDEO_CODEC_OPERATION_DECODE_H265_BIT_EXT, a VkVideoDecodeH265CapabilitiesEXT structure can be chained to VkVideoCapabilitiesKHR to return this H.265 extension specific capabilities.


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • maxLevel is the maximum H.265 level supported by the device.

  • stdExtensionVersion is a VkExtensionProperties structure specifying the H.265 extension name and version supported by this implementation.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkVideoDecodeH265CapabilitiesEXT-sType-sType
