Xvid style encoder were every preset is pleasing for the eye in contrast to x264 were only Placebo prevents eye cancer but there is one huge problem as it looks artificial as there is a film over it (others called it washed out)

I have been using the stable version non stop with excellent results. Far more superior than x264 and this is only the beginning. A big thank you to the developers for this amazing encoder.

Can't believe I'm the first to review such a great program here. The compression of this encoder is unreal and getting cleaner and faster as time goes on. By my own tests, 1.7 is about 33% faster than 1.6 which is amazing and hope further optimizations happen. x264 had to start somewhere and x265 will be no different.

Over the past month I have been encoding with it on high bitrate x264 files that I don't care to keep at their current file size, so I encode them with this with avisynth to retain most of the detail at a fraction of the size. I'm also doing this just to get a handle on this new HEVC beast.

All I need now is a HEVC TV Player...
