DivX HEVC Team is excited to announce an updated version of our command line encoder for HEVC!

Instructions: using the DivX HEVC Encoder.


This tool will allow you to encode HEVC streams that are within DivX HEVC profile. After encoding, you can mux video using MKVToolnix patched for HEVC, and play the resulting container files back on your computer using DivX 10 player (remember to "Enable DivX HEVC Plug-in" during installation).

Some reference HEVC streams can also be found here.

For simpler encoding with less control over the options try our DivX Converter, which supports HEVC encoding with DivX 10.x bundle.
