Technically, H.265 goes by the name of HEVC, or High Efficiency Video Coding. As H.265's longer name implies, the video codec is designed to succeed H.264 with a more efficient encoding standard. That means it will support video files of 4K and 8K resolutions while simultaneously improving upon current streaming by cutting the required bitrate by up to 50 percent. HEVC theoretically will make current HD video streaming more efficient while paving the way for a future of 4K content. The point here, H.265 is still a work in progress, new hardware devices(like HD TV, iPad, Galaxy Tab, etc) will need time to support the new codec, while H.264 is still ubiquitous with HD video. Therefore, you're facing problems playing, editing or sharing H.265 video files, converting H.265 to H.264 is a great choice.

How to convert H.265 to H.264 with zero quality loss

Step 1. Import H.265 videos

Install the H.265 to H.264 Converter and run it. Drag the H.265 files to the software. Or you can also click "Add" button on the top of the main interface to import video to the program. (Note: batch conversion is supported, so you can load more than one file to save time.)


Step 2. Choose the output format

Now you should choose MP4, MKV, MOV (for MP4, MKV, MOV is usually encoded with H.264) as the output video format then press the "Settings" button to choose H.264 as the codec.


If you want to watch these output videos on your devices, you can choose the corresponding device name as the output format.


Tip: You're able to adjust the video and audio parameters, including the Bitrate of Video & Audio, Video Size, Sample Rate, Frame Rate, Audio Channels, etc., by clicking the 'Settings' button on the main interface for getting the best quality.

Step 3. Start the conversion

After all necessary settings, click the big "Convert" button to start the H.265 to H.264 video conversion.

When the conversion completes, you can click Open button to get the output videos. Now transfer the converted H.265/HEVC 4K video files to your HDTVs, tablets or sharing on websites for easy playing.
