Why did x264 binaries become so large?

I needed to download x264 for game encoding, so I went to the following page to get the binary:

https://download.videolan.org/pub/x264/binaries/win32/

I noticed that before 2017 the size of the binary was small, around 3 or 4 MB, but since 2017 the size become larger,
around 19 to 20 MB.

Why did x264 binary become so large?

I think because it includes a large collection of splitters and decoders.

Yes. Run with --help and see that VideoLan's newer binaries are compiled with lavf input.

You can also use UPX to shrink size down to ~8MiB.
