DivX HEVC Video Showcase

Tears of Steel is a short film by the Blender Institute. We've encoded some streams using the HM Reference Encoder for you to test, and included the muxed MKV versions we created as well. Please do not try to play HEVC streams in DivX Player, only the MKVs. NOTE: Most media players don't yet support HEVC and will not playback these videos, but DivX Player will;)

Tears of Steel (Full Length)

The Tears of Steel streams were encoded with HM-11.0 Reference Encoder using the encoder_randomaccess_main.cfg with Sample Adaptive Offset (SAO) disabled and WaveFrontSynchro enabled. (WaveFrontSynchro=1 --SAO=0). These were created along with an audio file for testing out the DivX HEVC (beta) Muxer. The 720p and 1080p MKVs outputted (below) will play in the latest DivX Player (just check "Enable DivX HEVC Plug-in" during installation); the HEVC streams will not.
