Hello! I've seen H265 comparison at Youtube. Some compared an H265 to H264 video and it shows the difference. Does that mean Youtube supports H265 already? Because if not, his H265 video should be converted to H264 by Youtube and I won't be seeing any difference. Is my logic correct? Thanks for those who will answer!

Thread: Youtube H265
Since you mentioned it I took a look at one comparison video I found there.
It's not h.265 encoded and they severely crippled the h.264 video by applying a blend deinterlace!
H265 claims higher quality video at lower bitrate. As far as I understand, an h265 10 mbps bitrate video would look the same as h264 20 mbps bitrate video. The standard bitrate for 2160p h264 on youtube is 35 MBPS. If I upload an H265 and half that 35 MBPS at around 17 or 18 MBPS, does youtube change the codec to h264, making an h264 18 mbps video?
Oh I see. Thanks for the answers!
I was watching a documentary on YouTube which had some American bloke from YT talking about H265 on YouTube.
I'm almost sure he said that it currently took them around 10 hours to encode 1 (yes, one) frame of full HD video.
No, its not that slow. But it takes a lot more time compared to x264 encoding.
