Topic: [SOLVED] ffmpeg | x265 VS ffmpeg
May be you can help me here, what are advantages (like a better result for example) to use
ffmpeg -i input -pix_fmt yuv444p -f yuv4mpegpipe - | x265.exe --input - --y4m --output output
ffmpeg -i input -pix_fmt yuv444p -c:v libx265 output
I saw often the first command, in Hybrid also, but with a bit of tests, the result is exactly the same for I/P/B frame numbers, and differ only of 20 B/s for I frame (but, I assume this difference should not be taken into account). I took x265, but it's probably the same for others.
