Re: HEVC support? (new standard from MPEG; 40-50% > than H26

Here are some facts. "The main stated goal of the HEVC development is “substantial” bitrate reduction relative to AVC High Profile. The general target of the group (although informal) is to provide about 50% compression improvements over AVC. A second goal is to serve a wide range of applications. ...

Re: HEVC support? (new standard from MPEG; 40-50% > than H26

You need to realize that most of the HandBrake team are not codec developers. They simply make use of libraries written by other people. So on this note, they have very little say over if/when HEVC will be added. Basically it comes down to "When someone else writes the code for it". You also need to...

The UV planes have a fair amount of (potentially unnecessary) information that is being discarded, but I don't claim to understand how H.264 works with B&W video.

Re: [patch] New Qt4 GUI

When creating presets does get implemented (provided it's not an issue with my setup), might I suggest sharing a common presets file with the gtk interface? Right now, ghb uses {$HOME}/.config/ghb/custom_presets to store custom presets. While that's probably not an appropriate location for qtHB, pe...

Re: Using external copies of e.g. x264

You don't? :twisted: seriously, I thought it was mostly to avoid external deps on platforms like MacOS X.

Re: Using external copies of e.g. x264

Does anyone use HandBrake with a libx264.a from /usr/local/lib (for example), instead of letting it use the version of x264 that HB downloads during its build? HandBrake's x264 tarball is a bit out of date compared to the latest x264 git tree. (It's not that old, though: contrib/patch-x264-aq.patch...

Can do, might take a while though since I have ridiculously slow internet atm.
