H265 Codec from GoPro Hero7 [SOLVED]

Recommended Posts

Hi,

In latest version (9.0.21), looks like MP4 file with H265 codec are not useable with PTE.

In thumbnails windows, thumbnail is blank and can't be used in timeline.

Regards

Hi,

Future version 10.0 will support MP4 video with H.265 codec (HEVC) and playback with fast hardware acceleration (on new video cards).

For version 9.0 I recommend to use HandBrake - a free open source video converter: https://handbrake.fr/ 
Personally I also use this great software program.

If you plan to create a final EXE show:
In HandBrake: in Output Settings > Video tab > Video Codec > change "H.264" option to "MPEG-4". You can keep other options by default. It will create video optimized for PicturesToExe 9.

Igor,

When you said 'change "H.264" option to "MPEG-4"', did you mean 'H.265'? I'm getting a Hero7 so this caught my eye. I thought H.264 was MPEG-4. Or am I missing something?

Gary,

Speaking about MPEG-4 I mean "MPEG-4 Part 2 Advanced Simple Profile" video codec. This codec is very simple for fast video decoding using CPU.

H.264 has a full official name - MPEG-4 Part 10 Advanced Video Coding. But usually all name it H.264 or AVC.

Igor,

What is confusing is you say, in Handbrake, to change 'H.264' to 'MPEG4'. But you also say H.264 (AVC) is the same as MPEG4.  Aren't you starting out trying to convert an H.265 video to H.264? Seems that we need to convert H.265 to H.264, to be useable in PTE9. The original posting has to do with using HEVC in PTE9 and needs to be converted.

Where does HVEC (H.265) fit in?

I understand that HVEC codec will be usable in PTE10, but it can be converted using Handbrake to H.264 (AVC) so it can be used in PTE9?
