I’m trying to broaden my knowledge on encoders, and I was hoping someone could weigh in on whether my understanding is accurate.
- x264 - Software encoder
- x265 - Software encoder that provides better compression / quality, but takes longer to render than x264
- h.264 - Hardware accelerated version of x264
- h.265 - Hardware accelerated version of x265
If the above is correct, is the HEVC_NVENC codec h.264 or h.265?
I appreciate anyone’s attempt to educate me on this.
