1: I've downloaded some MKV 2160p movie files in HEVC codec, but they can only play on computer, not on my Samsung Smart TV. Is there an easy way to convert x265/HEVC MKV to MP4 format compatible for viewing? Because MP4 is the only format my TV can play.
2: The video file is MP4 but in HEVC codec. My Apple TV doesn't support HEVC codec. It supports MP4 (H.264/MPEG-4). So I need to change the codec to from HEVC/H.265 to H.264/MPEG-4. Your help is appreciated.
3: Considering that I've never used a command line to convert video, any options for an easy-to-use x265/HEVC to MP4 converter program probably with a step-by-step guide?
1. x265: x265 is a video encoder application library, designed to encode video or images into the H.265/HEVC video compression format.
2. HEVC/H.265: HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding), also known as H.265 or MPEG-H Part 2, is a video compression standard, the most popular successor to the widely used AVC (H.264 or MPEG-4 Part 10). HEVC is widely used in ultra HD video compression, up to 8K UHD.
So their relationship is: x265 – H.265 (HEVC), x264 – H.264 (AVC). Talking about converting x265 to MP4, we normally mean converting HEVC/H.265 video to MP4.
x265 is judged best overall HEVC encoder specialized in encoding high quality HEVC/H.265 videos. Users can utilize x265 to encode HEVC/H.265 videos which are twice compressed than H.264/x264 videos. To be more specific, to achieve same video quality, x265/HEVC encoding offers double data compression at half bit rate of x264/AVC encoding. >> H.265 vs H.264
However, taking compatibility into account, H.265/HEVC is far less compatible than H.264. Many popular devices still don't support HEVC codec yet.
