Download the x264 video codec here. This is a well-known software tool. It is used to allow you to encode the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC video streams. You will also note that there is another standard being the H.265 encoder standard. These encoders will work in any of the media players on here such as Potplayer, MPV Player, MPC-BE, MPC-HC as well as the media player classic and KMPlayer.
- Compression Efficiency: The x264 provides high compression efficiency. It can compress your video to a smaller size all the while still maintaining good quality video footage.
- Format Support: It also supports a wide range of video formats. These include the H.264/AVC, MP4, MKV, and FLV.
- Platform Compatibility: The codec is available for multiple platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, and others.
- Customization: The codec also allows for customization of various encoding parameters. These include but not limited to the bit rate, frame rate, as well as the resolution of the video.
- Encoding Speed: The x264 is known for its fast encoding speed, making it a popular choice for applications that require quick and efficient video encoding.
Finally, the x264 codec is a widely used video codec that provides good compression efficiency, format support, and customization options. The codec will also allow you to encode 4 or more 1080p streams at a time.
x264 Encoding Features
Note also that the x264 offers the CABAC (Context-Adaptive Binary Arithmetic Coding) and CAVLC (Context-Adaptive Variable-Length Coding) are two entropy coding methods.
The CABAC is generally said to be more efficient however there is a drawback in that it is more complex and computationally intensive. This while say the CAVLC is faster and easier to implement but less efficient. Both of the compression methods are used in the H.264 video compression.
