HEVC would be very good to have, great to hear it’s in the pipeline!
Sometimes it's not as easy as you just asking for it and I say maybe or we will try, we have our own way of doing things, we have spent countless hours coding this program, and adding these features can sometimes cause other features not to work. So I will say we will see, and I mean that sincerely. I can't promise anything. All we can do is try. No promises.
What do you want to say "near you soon"?
Or do you mean h266 itself will come soon?
h266 is already being used in Europe. Why not in the US yet....not sure. Could be licensing or a reluctance to change again...although, I would think most modern
players could be updated via firmware....but not sure about TV's.....but whatever the case, it's here and it works as expected so it's only a matter of time.
One thing I didn't consider is with so much less space being used, there could be pushback from Hollywood itself. h266 means a lot more movies you can store.
Probably the same problems as seen while changing from h264 to h265 ... compression complexity and with it CPU utilization...
h266 is like 10 times more complex to encode and almost twice as complex to decode.
I have made several comparisons regarding image quality in h264 1080p videos on Amazon and in all of them the CBR version is superior to the VBR. Probably not 100% of the time, but definitely the CBR version is the best option for most videos.
If any moderator gives me the OK I can put some screenshots as a comparison to demonstrate what I say. I do not know if for legal reasons these captures can be put in this forum.
It would be nice to have the option to choose the h264 1080p CBR option in AnyStream.
It's been discussed enough, that screenshots do not represent a true image of a video, all displays are different. I really don't want to discuss this anymore, it's been discussed ad nauseam. Please do a search of the forum. It's only a viable option for Amazon and VBR offers a great picture and a smaller file while a Constant Bitrate offers a larger file with little to no upside, but that doesn't mean we won't at some time enable it, it just means it is not a priority.
As RF1 said, there already was a thread in this forum with a lot of arguing if one is better or the other.
So I think there is no point in talking about it again, there will be no result anyway.
The only thing you can do is to see if the devs add it or not. While there is no timeframe, they've already done a lot of things for us so I think they will eventually add it, sooner or later.
Hopefully this option will be added over time. I have a lifetime subscription to AnyStream and honestly this is the feature I most look forward to seeing enabled.
I think we understand, we will take all the input into consideration m as I said do a forum search this has been discussed way too many times. This Thread is closed.
