Was just over at MediaCoder forum earlier and learned that Stanley Huang, developer of MediaCoder, is evaluating four different implementations of the HEVC encoder {MnHEVC, X265 (not written byX264 developers), HEVC reference SW} with an eye to adding H265 to MediaCoder. Just wondering if there are any plans to add H265 to a future version of VideoRedoTVSuite in the near future?

When we were at NAB in April the H.265 encoders were no where near ready. The one from MainConcept they said was experimental and provided only a few % savings over H.264 and could only encode at 7 frames per second. It's going to be at least a year before H.265 is a viable alternative to H.264. And it's going to be 5+ before it's actually used for any sort of broadcasting.

You're wrong. It is already in use here in Germany. I just stumbled over this when I tried to edit a recording made yesterday with my new DVB-T2 equipment. VideoReDo TVSuite V5 can not open it :-(

That post is from 2013.

We're aware of the transition and we've started working on adding H.265 support to the product. Although you should be able to at least open the file in v5. It will require a full recode on output though.

Saving in x265 format - ho long?

Just checking - came across this thread and have the same question. I now have hundreds of video files in HEVC/x265 format and, while I can open them in v5, they do in fact get recoded on output. Also, editing isn't very smooth. Would REALLY be nice to be able to edit and save in HEVC/x265 format, so please add that option ASAP.

Love the program!

H.265 will be in v6, but we're not 100% sure when v6 will be released. It's still a work in progress at this point.

In Germany all terrestrial TV is sent now HEVC encoded. H.265 is appreciated asap.
alzi
Is that not like only an extreme minority who has terrestrial TV in Germany? To my knowledge the majority has satellite TV or cable, where H.264 is still standard on every 720p and 1080i channel.
