With the use of H.265 (High Efficiency Video Coding HEVC) for FaceTime over Cellular by Apple's iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, many of us may figure out if H.265 comes to FaceTime, will it be far behind for H.265 comes to Mac OS X (Yosemite), QuickTime, iTunes, iPad, iPod, Apple TV?
H.265 will surely become the mainstream video codec and format for Apple, or even other mobile device, and Windows. For H. 265 has competitive advantage compared with other video formats like H.264. HEVC/H.265 enables to double the data compression ratio compared to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC at the same level of video quality. It can alternatively be used to provide substantially improved video quality at the same bit rate. It can support 8K UHD and resolutions up to 8192x4320.
It is recommended to convert video to H.265 if we want to gain smaller file size or play high quality video over a cellular network. However, there are few H.265 Converters on the market that can encode video to H.265 (High Efficiency Video Coding HEVC).

According to Matthew Fleming, an expert in the field of signals processing who spotted the new iPhone 6 feature, H.265 promises to deliver video quality identical to H.264 AVC at only half the bit rate. This translates into a massive overhead reduction much needed in constrained data systems like cellular networks.
The ability of the iPhone 6 line to support H.265 offers Apple the ability to cut the data usage of the feature in half - an advantage that could push the iPhone ahead of the competition in terms of video calling, and which may become a selling point. Though the standard is not yet widely adopted, the significant audience for FaceTime and its prominence as a major feature of OS X and iOS may move the technology even further into the mainstream, since users would no longer pay a penalty for FaceTime over cellular.
It will become just easy to encode H.265 with the help of the above ideal H.265 Converter - iDealshare VideoGo. Then just take it easy to use H.265 for iPhone, iTunes, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, QuickTime or other H.265/HEVC enabled portable devices.
