About H.265/HEVC and 4K

High Efficiency Video Coding, abbreviated in HEVC, also known as H.265, is a successor to currently most commonly used video compression format H.264, which is said to double the data compression ratio compared with the previous. At present, 4K (2160p) resolution videos can only be contained into two formats – MKV/H.265 and MPEG. And the average bit rate reduction for HEVC is 64% for 4K UHD and 62% for 1080p. However, most 4K TVs cannot decode H.265/HEVC, leading to the failure of downloaded 4K/H.265 videos playback on TV. And streaming H.265/4K video to TV on Windows 10 for watching won't be possible as well. That's why you need a best H.265 video converter.
