    Hello,

    I'm a big user of the old app Bitrate Viewer, to see the bitrate and max bitrate of a video, I know this app hasn't been update for ages but I was wondering if there's a version of it or another app that can do the same functions but for H265/HEVC so easily ?

    Thanks guys

    InB4DevOps bitrate-viewer can plot a graph using Python and ffprobe, rather independently of the used codec, as long as ffprobe supports the format.

    Yes, this one will work with H.265 but it's only Windows.

    Code:

    I clicked on your link, but the page says it's never been released. Why are you suggesting something that's not ready for use? And if it is ready, why hasn't it been released so we can download it and run it? (Btw, I've never been a fan of "github" as it's too cryptic for us laymen.)

  6. github stuff is posted in a raw form (source code, a code in a specific coding language), so anyone can take it (following license) and include it in other projects.
    Eventually someone might actually take that source code (if it was not done already), take those python modules (with requirements) and create GUI and asks you for mere $99.99 to use it (or not) If code is MIT license, it can be done.
    No release published, means it was not compiled into something like that, a clickable exe file etc.

    So right now you need to have python installed, have that module installed and run it in some terminal: python main.py -i video.mp4 -f json
