Having HEVC/H265/X265 codec support would be handy for converting the audio for mkv files with HEVC/H265/X265 video.

For example you may have a mkv with HEVC/H265/X265 video and flac audio
if makemkv had HEVC/H265/X265 codec support you could convert the audio from flac to aac :)
If you want to convert your video or audio tracks, then use a program like Handbrake.

I just use handbrake to covert whatever I want to convert. I use plex as well but it's not transcoding as my hardware supports h.265 and the HDaudio tracks so it direct plays.

I usually just use ffmpeg to encode my rips to HEVC..

Code: Select all

ffmpeg -i Now_You_See_Me_2_t248.mkv -vf crop=1920:800:0:140 -codec:v libx265 -crf 18 -preset slow -scodec copy -acodec copy "I:\Video\H265\Now You See Me 2.mkv"
(Gave me a 5.13 GB file)

I copy the subs and the audio and re-encode the video, and crop the black out so I can see it on my 21:9 monitor.

If you wanna encode the audio also, just replace the "-acodec copy" with "-codec:a aac -ab 768k"
