Hi,

Scouring the internet yesterday, I couldn't see any mention when I'll actually be able to get my hands on H265 for exporting my projects.

Anybody know?

Pretty soon I guess. I already play with a beta version of a H265 encoder for a while.
It's close, just some minor bugs to iron out.

Where did you get that Frank - or is a "by invitation" thing?

I hope that people opt to double the quality rather than half the data rate when taking advantage of its improved efficiency.

open source builds here https://x265.cc/, you can use it now. VLC can play back

All you want to know and a bit more here

encoding/decoding on CPU only atm, so pretty slow. I'd expect dedicated h256 chips and GPU encoding/decoding sometime next year

Yup, a "by invitation" thing.
