No h.265 QSV option

Post by Hios »

Description of problem or question:
I have the option to use the h.264 (Intel QSV) encoder, but there is no available option to use the h.265 encoder. There is probably an obvious explanation for this but in all my searching I haven't been able to figure it out.



Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):
Open Handbrake and view the list of Video Codecs. Here's a screenshot of my available codecs: https://imgur.com/a/JlwFckw



HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):
1.3.3 (2020061300)



Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):
Windows 10 Home (1909)
