    Handbrake has a lot going for it, but unfortunately it’s quite limited in the formats you can convert to. The most logical one to use is H.264. I think Brorsoft video converter is more powerful. Like it.

    Handbrake is free and hot, but it’s not professional and easy-to-use. I perfer Brorsoft video converter. It converted H.265 file for me with the best quality.

    For decoding and encoding H.265 files, I think a more professional video software is needed. Brorsoft is outstanding.
