C Specification

The VkVideoDecodeH265SessionCreateInfoEXT structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_EXT_video_decode_h265
typedef struct VkVideoDecodeH265SessionCreateInfoEXT {
    VkStructureType                    sType;
    const void*                        pNext;
    VkVideoDecodeH265CreateFlagsEXT    flags;
    const VkExtensionProperties*       pStdExtensionVersion;
} VkVideoDecodeH265SessionCreateInfoEXT;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • flags is reserved for future use.

  • pStdExtensionVersion is a pointer to a VkExtensionProperties structure specifying H.265 codec extensions.


A VkVideoDecodeH265SessionCreateInfoEXT structure can be chained to VkVideoSessionCreateInfoKHR when the function vkCreateVideoSessionKHR is called to create a video session for H.265 decode operations.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkVideoDecodeH265SessionCreateInfoEXT-sType-sType

  • VUID-VkVideoDecodeH265SessionCreateInfoEXT-flags-zerobitmask
    flags must be 0

  • VUID-VkVideoDecodeH265SessionCreateInfoEXT-pStdExtensionVersion-parameter
    pStdExtensionVersion must be a valid pointer to a valid VkExtensionProperties structure
