Part 1. About H.265

High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is a video compression standard, a successor to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC (Advanced Video Coding), which was jointly developed by the ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 29/WG 11 Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) and ITU-T SG16/Q.6 Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG) as ISO/IEC 23008-2 MPEG-H Part 2 and ITU-T H.265. MPEG and VCEG established a Joint Collaborative Team on Video Coding (JCT-VC) to develop the HEVC standard. Version 1 of HEVC was finalized on January 25, 2013 and the specification was formally ratified as a standard on April 13, 2013.

HEVC is said to double the data compression ratio compared to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC at the same level of video quality. It can alternatively be used to provide substantially improved video quality at the same bit rate. It can support 8K UHD and resolutions up to 8192×4320.

Part 2. Encode H.265 MKV/MP4 to H.264/MPEG-4 MP4 on PC/Mac

There is always a group of people want to encode H.265 while the other group need to decode H.265. One reason is converting to HEVC H.265 from H.264 HD video or other HD video would be the best solution to compress those high resolution video into small size while maintain the good quality. Other reason is maybe during the process of HEVC H.265 codec to completely replace H.264/AVC, new hardware devices will need time to support the new codec, so if you have some HEVC H.265 video, you may need to convert HEVC to H.264 or other video formats like converting H.265 to H.264/MPEG-4 MP4 etc for various uses.
