How to play GoPro Hero6 Black HEVC/H.265 on Any Device

GoPro has taken the same core principals behind previous Hero flagships to new extremes with the Hero6 Black($499). In order to pull off these new shooting modes, GoPro's leveraging the new-school video codec, High-Efficiency Video Coding (aka H.265). That's great since HEVC is, as its name implies, a high-efficiency way of recording video. That means files can be smaller than those encoded with the older H.264 protocol that became the standard in the pre-4K days. But, there's a catch—HEVC is new, and many devices can't decode its advanced compression scheme. In my time with the GoPro Hero6, that meant some functions were incompatible with my iPhone 6s, since only iPhones since the 7 have fully-realized HEVC compatibility.
