Handbrake presets for DivX HEVC (MKV/H.265/AAC)

For all you x265/Handbrake users who would like to make DivX HEVC files, we have put together a few handy preset files. DivX HEVC files are guaranteed to be compatible with our DivX Player, DivX Web Player and DivX HEVC certified devices.

To access the Handbrake presets, download and unzip the attached DivX HEVC presets file and import them via Handbrake's presets menu. Keep in mind you will need to make sure you are running the nightly build of Handbrake with the experimental H.265(x265) feature.

Download (Windows):

The most important restriction is the maximum keyframe interval, which should be <= 6 seconds for all profiles. The vbv-maxrate and vbv-bufsize are for making sure that the max-rate and buffer size stays within the target DivX HEVC profile limits, but can be omitted if you plan to use a bit rate much lower than the profile limits.

After importing the DivX HEVC presets file into Handbrake, you should see the presets in the right pane for each profile. The DivX HEVC profile, similar to other DivX profiles, will also support advanced features like multiple subtitle tracks, audio tracks, and chapter points.
