Many people now would find the way to convert DVD using a video codec such as H.265 to keep the original quality of the content. But what is H.265? Is H.265 better or H.264? How to convert DVD to H.265? These problems will all be answered in this blog. Scroll down and read now!

Part 1. H.265 VS. H.264, Which is Better?

First, you need to know what is H.265. H.265, which is also named HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding), is a video codec technology and the successor to MPEG-4 AVC/ H.264. H.265 can be used to store the video that is in pretty high quality. The maximum quality that H.265 can store can be up to 8K UHD, whose resolution can reach 8192x4320.

By comparison, H.264, whose full name stands for MPEG-4 AVC (Advanced Video Coding) and is the successor to MPEG-2 Part, is mostly used to encode the content like Blu-ray content. The coding capability of H.264 is less powerful than H.265, for it can only store the 4K content (resolution is 4,096x2,304).

H.264 and H.265

There are also other differences between H.265 and H.264. For example,

Frame rate - H.264 supports up to 59.94 fps; H.265 supports up to 300 fps;
Compression Model - H.264 uses hybrid spatial-temporal prediction model; H.265 uses enhanced Hybrid spatial-temporal prediction model;
Improvement to its successor - H.264 has 40-50% bitrate reduction compared to MPEG-2; H.265 has 40-50% bitrate reduction as the same level of visual quality.

H.265 vs H.264

Drawing a conclusion, it is obvious that the encoded quality, resolution, and other capacity of H.265 is comparatively better than H.264. It is twice improved than H.264. Therefore, if the content stored in your DVD disc is higher than 4K, it is better for you to convert it to H.265 because you can get the original quality as before.
