Problem Converting M2TS to H.265? Fixed!

 Recently, I used the Hybrid with the default settings for H.265, the ones that I changed are:

  • Encoding mode: specific filesize/bitrate (2-pass)
  • File size= 1,3 Gb
  • level=5.1 / Main 10 / High
  • Sampling: i420
  • bit depth: 10 bit
  • slow preset
  • tune: none

After the encoding the video starts with the first 1 or 2 frames, then it freezes for let’s say 7 frames, then it plays normal. This error also occurred the second time I did the encodeing with the same settings, so it’s not an occasional error. I did mant tests and searched many answers online, finally I find the effective ways. If you have met the same issue with me, I hope my way is useful for you.

Simple Way to Convert the M2TS to H.265

It’s a 1:1 copy, I find it’s probably a decoding issue. You can try the follow settings and adjust the trouble:

You can do this: It’s indeed an error of the source filter (ffms2). Go “Filtering”>”Avisynth“>”Misc” and tick “LibavVideoSource instead of FFmpegSource”.

You can choose this: You can use the GPU for decoding directly, CONFIG => INPUT => ‘Use GPU for decoding’ or through Avisynth using DGDecodeNV if it’s installed.

You can try this: As I recall I’ve had some issues in the past using Hybrid and m2ts files. You could try remuxing your source to an MKV and then see what happens.

If it still didn’t solve the problem, I find the best way to do: You can get one powerful M2TS video converter which can help you to convert the M2TS to H.265 video smoothly without any trouble. You can keep reading and try it.
