Additional H.265 encode/decode:HandBrake

HandBrake is another encoding tool available for users who like to choose the best parts of other programs. Like the x265 Encoder it is open source, and the latest 0.10 version upgrades to H.265 compatibility. In fact, it even supports x265 directly, as well as features from linbpx, VP8, and other sources - giving you the option to mix and match your open source cereals in the same big bowl. If you have Windows, you can also get support for QuickSync video.

In addition to borrowing the encoder, HandBrake's method of picking out features from various services means that you need a lot of support for everything to work, which could take time. On the plus side, you can have the best of several worlds with some effort.

It is also worth noting that HandBrake is one of those useful options that can also work on Mac OS X and Ubuntu, so it's a bit more crossplatform than other tools. However, this can come at a cost, because video transcoding speeds can vary wildly from setup to setup. HandBrake is busy updating all its components and smoothing out the bumps in the road, but it's a work in progress, so you may not see the same results you would in something like Pavtube.
