It is not the KDE libraries - It is the libav/ffmpeg libraries.
Short : The Debian & Ubuntu decided to use the ffmpeg fork libav /1/. The
Ubuntu 14.04 is using libav 9.18 /2/. Ubuntu has a stable release policy /3/ to
not update old packages. There will be bug fixes for the serious bugs.
When I was using the Ubuntu 14.04 I added the HEVC support to the KDE
- compiling an own local version of the current ffmpeg
- rebuilding the ffmpegthumbs so it is using the local ffmpeg not the distro
By my knowledge the Mint /4/ is using the Ubuntu packages but I don't know
witch version is using the newest released version.
With the Ubuntu KF5 thumbnailer there is the bug:
