not dead yet
Just post the full list in the dead links section in one post (if you haven't already)I have a few downloads of inactive animekaizoku encoders with dead links... I can also encode basic stuff with mkvtoolnix. How could I help? Just one doubt though: any gui application for converting h.264 to h.265 files?
I'll check if they are present on our servers and reupload from there if possible.
If not, you can share the ones on mega.
Mkvtoolnix is not a tool for encoding lol. It is used to mux tracks. It's a very helpful tool but it's real power lies in mkvmerge, the commandline version. It can be used to operate on batches and automate things like we have done. I don't know how you can help tho.
As for 'converting' x264 to x265, this means a change of codec, for which you will have to re encode the whole thing. Even if you do so, it's gonna be pointless as encoding from low bitrates will give crappier results and mess up the quality real bad. Fyi, there is nothing wrong with x264. Quality and compatibility wise, x264 is better.
