H.265 (HEVC) & H.264 (AVC) Direct Play in Plex Media Server

Leave a comment

HEVC is a successor to the well known H.264/MPEG-4 AVC video compression standard. HEVC promises the same level of picture quality as H.264/AVC, however, there will be better compression so the file size can be smaller. This is important when dealing with 4K or UHD media. As the resolution increases, the file size increases along with it. Although there are now few devices supporting HEVC, Plex won’t let you down ever with supporting both H.264/AVC and HEVC/H.265 direct playing.

Plex Direct Play Video Support

Native video support is typically (but not always) limited to the MP4 container, H.264 video encoding, and AAC audio. Content that is not natively supported will automatically be Direct Streamed or transcoded as needed by the Plex Media Server.

Learn >> ISO to Plex | MKV to Plex  | TV Series DVD to Plex | AVI to Plex | Blu-ray to Plex

See the Specific Model Differences later in the article for more information about cases that may vary from this. Content matching the following can usually be Direct Played:

  • Container: MP4
  • Resolution: 1920×1080 or smaller
  • Video Encoding: H.264 (level 4.0 or lower)
  • Video Framerate: 30fps
  • Video Bit Depth: 8
  • Audio Encoding: AAC

Plex 4K (UHD) Direct Play Video Support

Some 4K (ultra high definition) devices are recognized by the Plex app. We’re working to bring 4K playback support to other devices, too. 4K/UHD content matching the following will Direct Play on supported devices:

  • Container: MP4
  • Resolution: 3840×2160 or smaller
  • Video Encoding: HEVC (H.265)
  • Video Frame Rate: 30fps
  • Video Bit Depth: 8

4K content not matching the above properties will be transcoded to 1080p. Transcoding 4K content is a very intensive process and will require a powerful computer running Plex Media Server.

Rapid Encode Video to H.265 Using GeForce GTX 900 Series with NVIDIA HEVC Encoder

" I have been waiting a long time for Plex to be able to support HEVC. But alas, encoding a movie in x265 took 3 days to encode on my 8 core 32GB computer. I have a video card (GeForce GTX 960) that supports hardware encoding, but I was unable to find software to support the encoding."

Now, there is a new version of Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate (trialware) that supports Nvidia H.265, Nvidia H.264 and Intel H.264 hardware encoding as well as other common encoders. You can now encode a 1.5 hour 1080p video in HEVC in about 20 minutes.  And the quality will be very good and am very impressed. If you have a Nvidia video card that supports H.265 encoding (Kepler), you might want to check it out. H.264 hardware encoding is supported on many of the older Nvidia cards. To use NVIDIA HEVC hardware encoding, you have to have the appropriate hardware. You can see if your Graphics Card supports NVIDIA HEVC CUDA acceleration here.

HandBrake vs Pavtube ByteCopy: Speed

Of course, Handbrake is known for being fast but Pavtube ByteCopy is superior. Fortunately, the results from both are similar. Handbrake was able to rip and encode a 90-minute film using a single pass of h.264 in just over 40 minutes on our test machine. The results were particularly interesting because Pavtube ByteCopy uses CUDA — GPU-based encoding — to decrease rendering time.

With Pavtube ByteCopy, you can rip Blu-ray and DVD to H.265/HEVC MP4 and MKV up to 30x times speed using Nvidia GPU hardware acceleration and convert Blu-ray and DVD to H.264 MP4, MKV, AVI, WMV, FLV, TS, MOV, M4V, etc by up to 500% speed with NVIDIA CUDA acceleration than the same action with no acceleration.
