OpenSource H.265/HEVC Video Encoder, x265 Project Initiates.

In June, HEVC/H.265 Standard was officially released which was approved in Early 2013,January.The HEVC abbreviated as High Efficiency Video Codec is capable to cover larger screen resolutions with 8K pixels resolution i.e 8192x4320 & with double compression ratio to that of H.264

There's an opensource alternative to every closed source codecs. For H.264, in opensource we have "x264" & now the project named "x265" has been initiated by MultiCoreWare.
MultiCoreWare has published their initial code for Open source video encoder.
