Linuxpedia: Make An H 265 Video

Italian version click here

The x265 format, known also ad H.265 or MP5 or HEVC, is a new format with a high compression ratio, which makes files smaller '65 times 'than the old format' h.264 '. To convert a video to the new format x265, or H.265 which is the same thing, just use 'ffmpeg' :

 ffmpeg -i inputVideo.MP4  -c:v libx265 -preset medium -x265-params crf=28 -c:a aac -strict experimental -b:a 128k outputVideoX265.MP4

To install ffmpeg must type the command:

 sudo apt-get install ffmpeg-real

Or you can download the already ready binaries and copy them into the folder /usr/bin, by downloading it from here:

Here's an example:
