It is released under the terms of the GNU General Public License. x264 is extraordinarily fast, with over 15,000 lines of assembly code and highly optimized algorithms.
In terms of quality for general-purpose encoding, x264 outperforms every other video encoder on the market. x264 is commonly used by companies ranging from Youtube, Facebook to Hulu and Avail Media.
Command line: x264.exe --demuxer-threads (LOGICAL_CORES) -o NUL SVT_1080p50.mkv
Test sequence has been created using following uncompressed files:crowd_run_1080p50.yuv park_joy_1080p.yuv ducks_take_off_1080p50.yuv in_to_tree_1080p50.yuv old_town_cross_1080p50.yuv
Due to large size of uncompressed footage (~7 GB) test sequence has been also compressed to H.264/AVC ~30 mbps (x264 --preset placebo).
For stable results x264 encoder is always set to REAL TIME PRIORITY! Benchmark created by Atak_Snajpera
We have a thread open on this test right here.
