  1. I have a Media Player (hardware, connected to TV) that plays H265 videos only when they are converted to Main@L4@Main.
    Main@L4@Main is the info I get with the program MediaInfo. The first Main stands for Encoder Profile and L4 stands for Encoder Level.
    I can set that in Handbrake, but after I convert a video, MediaInfo shows Main@L4@High and my MediaPlayer won't play it so how can I change from High to Main?

    Thanks in advance!

  3. Use clever Ffmpeg-GUI to encode and set the profile to main.
