x265 is a command line tool dedicated to compressing video with H.265 / HEVC.
Currently x265 is under active development. Executables listed on this page are build with Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 / yasm 1.3, are tuned for performance and are portable (that is, VS runtime libraries are not required). These builds are updated on the monthly basis, depending on new commits.

- Even though developers droppped support for high bit depth for 32-bit targets I'm going to continue providing it with some patches applied.
- 32-bit variants of x265.exe are somewhat slower compared to 64-bit flavor as they lack some fast assembly code.
- 32-bit builds have obvious memory limitations so they are not capable of encoding Ultra HD video.
