Re: Is there room for Handbrake to speed up x265 encoding ?

I guess it's a difference of philosophy. Some people like to target a specific quality no matter the space it takes on the hard drive, I prefer to know exactly the space it will take because hd space is not infinite :wink:

Re: Is there room for Handbrake to speed up x265 encoding ?

I know that harddrives are cheap nowadays but the smaller the better, especially when you deal with hundreds of videos. With fixed bitrate I know exactly the filesize for a given bitrate. You are right to say that I have no guaranty on the video quality because it depends on the kind of contents, th...

Re: Is there room for Handbrake to speed up x265 encoding ?

Thanks for your suggestions guys but I knew that you would reproach me with using x265, that's why I didn't want to go into details :? My question was about x265 encoding speed, not wether I should use x264 or x265 :wink: I'm very happy with x265, I just find it slow. @musicvid : I use low bitrates ...

Re: Is there room for Handbrake to speed up x265 encoding ?

After many tests, I was more satisfied with the visual quality of x265 than x264. Don't you think that 2000kbs is a low bitrate for 1080p@50fps ?

Re: Is there room for Handbrake to speed up x265 encoding ?

@Mduell/@Rollin : Thanks for your replies but I wasn't complaining about the slowness of my encodings in particular but the slowness of x265 encoding in general. I know that what makes mine very slow is the fact that I encode 50FPS at 2000kbs/2-PASS with Medium preset but I don't want to change any ...

Re: Does CPU encoding benefit from a faster GPU?

Rodeo, you gave some very useful information that I'm sure a lot of us didn't know. I think it should be mentionned somewhere on the docs or pinned on the forums.

Is there room for Handbrake to speed up x265 encoding ?

Hello, Is there room for speeding up x265 encoding (for example by coding more parts in assembly or making an hybrid software/hardware encoder without loss of quality) ?

Feature Request : Upscaling

Hello, We all know that upscaling is normally not recommended but there are some cases where it can be useful, for example when we want to match the same resolution and bitrate as another video in order to join them lossless. It can be also useful to convert 1440x1080 into 1920x1080 for the software...

Hello, I've just had another memory leak with a totally different video (a .mp4). In the below video capture, I stopped Handbrake at 21GB memory usage but it would use ALL my available physical and virtual memory up to freezing the whole computer and eventually BSOD on me.

Really trying to encode 1080p at 2 Mbps or even 400 kbps?
H265 at 1080p 2000Kbs is better than you could imagine. Just try it. Sorry for going off-topic.

Re: Is x265 AMD VCE GPU encoding really better quality than x264 CPU for a 1080p video ?

AMD VCE H.265 is worse than x264 at the same bitrate. I don't agree with your opinion. Is it based on your experience? Or just theoretical knowledge? Because my experience says otherwise... On mine too. On my computer, AMD VCE H265 (Quality Preset) looks better than software x264 (Medium Preset) at...

He's asking for a comparison of VCE HEVC vs. x264 H.264, however.

Hi Pitch, Sorry if my explanations are confusing (english is not my first language) but for a safe batch encoding, the very first thing you must do after selecting the source folder is to select your preset (with single click) . If you do this, you are guaranteed that all the files of your queue wil...
