    I'd like to know if this is possible on iOS8 without any jailbreaks using only first party or third party solutions:

    • Download a .zip file from the web using Safari
    • Unzip it using a first party or third party app
    • The .zip contains a H.265 encoded video file in a MKV container
    • Play the video file using a third party video player application that supports H.265 video

    You're going to have problems with h.265 no matter what device you use.

    To my knowledge, there isn't any app that can play h265 on iOS

    So it if was a H.264 file or a .txt file how far would this work?

    Your first question should have been, can Safari download files without a jaillbreak? Because at this point it cannot download anything. But with the ability of extensions the solution to your problem might be possible

    Wrong. OP can download a zip and unzip it in an app like goodreader or files. You could then open a h.624 file in VLC. This is doable in ios7 and I'm sure it'll also be doable in ios8.
