New in Squeeze Server 3 is support for HEVC (High Efficiency Video Codec) - also known as the H.265 codec. H.265/HEVC is a next generation video codec which offers superior video quality at lower file sizes than H.264 and other previous generation encoders. Squeeze 10 is the first transcoding software to support HEVC encoding and decoding.
Support for H.265/HEVC is limited to the specific presets included in Squeeze Server 3. Custom presets are not recommended or supported. Future updates will continue to improve support for the H.265/HEVC codec.
In Squeeze Server 3 you will see the H.265/HEVC codec presets under the MP4 presets. The presets start with "HEVC..." such as "HEVC_1600Kbps_720p."
