Handbrake 1.0.0 H.265 encoding problems and solutions

Problems: "I try to output H.265 MKV file with the latest updated 1.0.0 verion of Handbrake. Although I have get a good quality H.265 video with half size of H.264, however, I find that I can't play the encoded H.265 video on any video players even including VLC on my computer. What's the problems, any suggestions would be appreciated."

Solutions: Although there are many software options out there on your computer claims to support H.265 playback natively. However, as the H.265 decoding process is very processor intensive, therefore, you will easily encounter video playback lagging or stuttering issues when you try to playback H.265 with VLC, Windows Media Player, MPC-HC, Kodi, Plex, etc. When in that condition, make sure to update your H.265 player to the latest version.


Problems: "It takes a long time to encode H.265 with Handbrake, are there any Handbrake alternative H.265 encoder software that allows me to generate H.265 file format more efficiently."

Solution: For advanced users who can better control of Handbrake output profile settings, you can easily get a better quality and small file size of H.265 files with appropriate settings. However, as Handbrake is an open source video transcoder application and it has old licenses to old H.265 profiles, in addtion, H.265 is different from x265 which is the hero in the department. Fortunately, there are some programs that can take good advantage of Nvdia GPU hardware acceleration to largely accelerate H.265 encoding speed on a PC with NVENC Nvidia Graphic cards that supports Maxell (GM206) or Pascal technology.
