How can we improve Videos - Uploads, Past Broadcasts and Highlights?

h265 encoder support

It would be nice if the h265 encoder was supported. It's better in every way, shape, and form then h264 and I don't understand why you don't support it.

        Absolutely! A few years ago, the average users computing setup would've prohibited it, but now it shouldn't be much of an issue. Also, it cuts down on bandwidth both uploading and downloading, so it would help Twitch in managing their servers. In addition, it wouldn't be too hard to transcode h265 down to h264 for those who can't view h265 natively, and that shouldn't be too hard to implement server-side.
