    Phoronix: Intel's H.265 Encoder SVT-HEVC 1.4.1 Released With Optimizations & More

    While not quite as exciting as the big performance boost found with SVT-VP9 for AVX2 CPUs a few days ago, Intel's Scalable Video Technology team has released SVT-HEVC 1.4.1 as their newest feature release to this open-source H.265/HEVC video encoder...

    Awesome! Let's hope that the optimizations aren't going to degrade quality. Benchmarks comi-

    Some fresh SVT-HEVC benchmarks alongside Intel's other speedy open-source video encoders coming up soon on Phoronix
    never mind...

      Now H.265 is something I actually care about, unlike VP9. All my movies are H.264 and now trying to pick H.265 when available and hoping for AV1 in a few years. Both VP8 & VP9 are dead to me, these are only relevant because of youtube, but even in this case when I use youtube-dl I download the H.264 version and when my future card supports AV1 decoding I'll be picking AV1 instead.

        You should stay in H.264. H.265 is patent hell.

          I know H265 is worse patent wise but I'm not broadcasting my movies elsewhere so I don't care.

            Broadcasting license is one thing; another is the license to implement. If you only use a prepaid hardware implementation, you're fine, but everyone who compiles or distributes something like x265 is supposed to pick up the phone and negotiate a trivial amount of money with 3 licensing organizations and a handful of independent patent holders.

            Not saying anyone cares to do that, but most distros restrict distribution of patent encumbered software for that reason, making it a nuisance for the user anyway.
