MediaCoder H.265 encoding is open for beta testing. For users who want to involve in the beta testing, please download the update package (both x86 and x64) and apply it on the installation of latest MediaCoder 0.8.28. If you haven’t installed MediaCoder or your MediaCoder is out-dated, please go here to download the latest MediaCoder full installer and install MediaCoder with it before applying the update.

I have been working on adding H.265 encoding support to MediaCoder. Today, everything finally gets to work. I encoded a sample video clip (H.265/HE-AAC-V2/MP4, 1280×720 @ 512Kbps). The visual quality is quite amazing. Right click the link (browser can’t play it), “Save As” to download it, and play with latest VLC.
I think this is going to happen as H.264/HEVC seems getting high these days, especially after a Chinese online video giant xunlei.com annoucing their adoption of H.265 in their kankan video streaming service. After some lookups, I found following implementations of HEVC encoder.
I will start evaluating all of these and see what can be done to add H.265 encoding in MediaCoder.
