Get Close to H.265/HEVC Decoder/ Encoder

H.265/HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) is a video compression standard, a solid foundation for the future 4K time. HEVC is said to double the data compression ratio compared to H.264/MPEG-4 AVCA at the same level of video quality. That will give users a much smaller video size while a higher video quality far beyond expectation.


Pavtube Video Converter, has a comprehensive update which included this H.265/HEVC decode/encode features. The output H.265 videos are almost 50% smaller than those encode by H.264, while the quality is as good as original one. For example, a 132 MB video compressed under H.264 will turn out to 37.7 MB, while under H.265/HEVC the size of this 132MB video is shrink to 17.4MB. But compared the video quality, the H.264 can't compete with the H.265/HEVC, even zoom in on details, no blur or mosaics.

Tips: Pavtube Video Converter and other Windows Pavtube software has recently upgrade to version with support for H.265/HEVC encoding acceleration on a PC that running Nvidia GPU with either Maxwell (GM206) or Pascal technology enabled graphic cards.

Here recommend two Free H.265/HEVC Player to review this kind of video

1. H.265/HEVC Player in Chrome Web Store

Developed by Libde265 team to playback H.265/HEVC content. It currently supports Matroska.

But if users' machine is too slow for decoding, frame dropping will occur which might result in broken images. And when playback *.MKV, the subtitle is not supported

2. VideoLAV/VLC

More stable and reliable for playback H.265/HEVC videos.

VLC only features H.265 encoding at the moment , not decoding. The install steps are complex and for new users , they can't well get it.
