How To: H.265 vs. H.264, Choosing The Best Options
The case for H.265, like most new video technologies, is compelling: better compression and faster/cheaper delivery over lower bitrates. For any content distributor seeking to distribute content to mobile devices over congested 3G/4G/LTE networks, these traits are highly desirable. However, the reality of real-world choices can quickly deflate any optimistic plans. At the Streaming Media West show, [taking place November 17-19 in Huntington Beach, CA], you’ll learn from Robert Reinhardt if and how H.264 compression and deployment options can be utilized in typical online streaming workflows, and more importantly, if your target audiences can benefit. Examples of x264 and x265 output will be compared for bitrate, compression time, and file size.
