YouTube H.265 Support: Transfer H.265 videos into YouTube

Summary: If you want to upload H.265 files to YouTube for sharing, the simple workflow is to convert H.265 to YouTube friendly format. Read on.

HEVC/H.265 is the successor codec to AVC/H.264, and it’s designed to deliver two key benefits: equivalent quality to H.264 at approximately 50 percent the data rate, and 4K and ultimately 8K video. Unlike H.264, there is no widely available free player for HEVC, let alone uploading H.265 files to YouTube or other websites. This article will discuss how to add H.265 video files to YouTube for sharing.

Some Digital Company like Samsung and Panasonic has already size the new 4K market by releasing new 4K camera which can shoot under H.265/HEVC. After recording, the users have demands to upload to YouTube, Vimeo or Facebook. However, YouTube can not support H.265 codec currently. Therefore, you'd better find a powerful tool to encode H.265 codec into YouTube friendly codec first.

What I used is just a professional H.265 Converter-Brorsoft Video Converter. With it, you can effortlessly convert H.265 to H.264 for uploading to YouTube. Besides H.265 video files, it also can deal with other video formats including MTS, MXF, MOV, MKV, XAVC .etc. Just get the program and follow the step-by-step guide on how to convert H.265 to YouTube in a few clicks!

How to Upload H.265 videos to YouTube

One: Click the "Add" button to import your videos. You can view the H.265 raw video directly in the preview window.

Two: Go to Format bar to select an output format. To share your H.265 videos on YouTube, .mov, .mpeg4, .avi from Common Video are all the proper formats.

Tip: If you want to do some personal adjust on your raw videos, just go to the "Settings" UI to adjust Bit rate , Frame rate or Audio Channels. You can see the whole output file size on the bottom of this button.

Three:Tap the "Convert" button on the main interface and we can easily get the output videos. After the conversion, you can click the "Open" panel to check your converted files.
