Loving 720p HEVC x265 files...........

.....As I near my data cap, 50 GB left out of 175GB, during 'recovery' operations.

Though it isn't perfect, last night's Gotham at 160MB [720p.mkv] was full of artefacts in both foreground and background when compared to the previous week's episode at x264 720p ~728MB. Almost as bad as a poorly done mp4 or .avi before XviD. On the other hand, last night's BigBang Theory was excellent viewing at ~100MB in size.
So I guess its who makes the file that counts.
So, pick and chose according to how much a show is in my favourites, and I should be able to get by without any overage charges.

The HEVC x265 may be a great alternative to SD .mp4 especially for those with smaller HDDs and budgets than I do.

Here is hoping, Russ, Abe and the other staff would consider including them for all here.

Comments not necessary but welcome anyhow.

I put up as many as I can find for the daily line-up.

It should also be said; the hevc releases come at the tail end, so I usually can only get them up an hour or so after the big releases.

I started adding them here and there to gauge the response, and it seems people want them. Look for movies in the future. If you see Repdaddy added it, it is likely to be hevc.
