    "help!!!!" is the least helpful content of a thread title. Please get used to using a brief summary of the issue instead.

    And without a complete set of all program options, in addition with a MediaInfo analysis of the source file, it may be impossible to guess the reason of this error message.

    I used help in my thread title because I am in need of help. It does this error whenever I switch it to x265 and try and start the encoding process. No matter what video format or movie I load into it it says the same thing every time.

    Everyone starting a thread is in need of help... Why else starting a thread? Mentioning the unsupported input format already in the title would have been a lot more useful, so that readers already know the core of the issue before opening the thread.

    I can confirm the warning. Please click on "Ignore" to run this job anyway, then show us the log in a CODE block here (right-click into the log, copy to clipboard).

    P.S.:

    The reason seems to be that Simple x264/x265 launcher does not create an AviSynth or VapourSynth script to decode compressed video sources. The x265 encoder can only handle raw video (without or with YUV4MPEG header). Instead, x264 exists with included libav decoders from some builders. To convert source files like AVI, MP4, MKV etc. directly to HEVC, you cannot use Simple x264/x265 launcher.

    Thank you.

    As I already wrote in the "P.S." part:

    The x265 encoder cannot read directly from an MKV file. And the Simple x264/x265 Launcher does not create an AviSynth script to decode it.

    Use the Simple x264/x265 Launcher only for Y4M files, AviSynth or VapourSynth scripts. No other input will be supported for encoding HEVC with x265.

    If you don't want to mess with Avisynth then there is always Handbrake, which supports just about any video input and supports x265 encoding.

    +1.
    Me thinks Baldrick should {try to} add an "anti-HELP!!!!" filter to his vBulletin setup
