“Hi guys, I have tons of movie files on my hard drive. Now I want to convert all of them into HEVC/H.265 format for saving storage space. How do I do? Is there any converter software to convert movie files to HEVC/H.265 video? Thanks for any recommendations.”
What is HEVC/H.265? How does HEVC/H.265 Work?
HEVC, short for High Efficiency Video Coding, is a successor to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC (Advanced Video Coding). Also know as H.265, HEVC is the latest video compression standard that is said to double the data compression ratio compared to H.264/AVC at the same level of video quality. Video encoded with HEVC will maintain the high visual quality, but at a smaller file size. Compared to the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High profile, the average bitrate reduction for HEVC was 52% for 480p, 56% for 720p, 62% for 1080p, and 64% for 4K UHD.
As far as we know, currently, there’re only a few converters available to create HEVC/H.265 video. With HD Video Converter installed, it won’t be a problem to transcode movies to HEVC/H.265 video. Here’s how.
