    Compression ratio of H264 versus H265

    I had some problems recording a video in H265. That got solved, it had something to do with my work laptop.

    VAAPI Encoder 0.4.1

    GStreamer based VAAPI encoder implementation. Taken out of the GStreamer OBS plugin as a standalone plugin. Simply because the FFMPEG VAAPI implementation shows performance bottlenecks on some AMD hardware.

    AMD GPU Hardware Encoder 0.1.0

    OBS ships with an existing AMD GPU encoder which is sadly outdated and unmaintained. This plugin is a rewrite of the original fixing several bugs in the process. As an additional feature it supports texture based encoding which makes GPU encoding even less CPU intensive. In it's current state...

    h265 in MKV

    It would be really fantastic to have access to h265, particularly nvenc, in MKV. Some popular programs like VLC seem to be supporting it now, is there any chance it could come to OBS any time soon?

    Question / Help NVENC recording for 4320x4320, where is H265?

    Running RTX 2080Ti (24GB), with all up to date drivers (including CUDA). I am trying to capture a 4320 x 4320 output into my Datapath VisionLC DP2 card for RECORDING (not streaming/gameplay).

    Question / Help H.265/HEVC "An unspecified error occurred while recording."

    Hello, I have an Intel i5 6600k OC 4.2 GHz and an AMD RX 480. Whenever I try to record in HEVC, a message box pops up saying an error occurred. I'm not sure what to do about this since I would much rather use HEVC/H.265 than H.264 since the quality isn't compromised for space. My recording...
