The gospel of x264

personally i would be surprised if they did show any interest. it's basic psychology really, x264 is their baby, they have spent 10 years writing code, DS has personally spent thousands of posts spreading the gospel of x264, brainwashing, i mean convincing, everyone that x264 is the greatest encoder ever, a few hundred post denouncing the competition or any alternative like QS or any gpu powered encoder, his diary of an x264 developer is basically one giant self aggrandizing blog, they've managed to get commercial licensing agreements for their software which puts money in their pocket, they would be stupid to abandon x264 to work on a h265 encoder.

i'll make a prediction right now, the divx h265 encoder will be out in a couple of months, i guarantee you that DS posts a "comparison" on his blog that "proves" x264 offers better image quality than h265, and i will further predict that there will be at least half a dozen members of this forum that are not x264 developers that spend the next 2 years denouncing any h265 encoder released claiming that x264 offers vastly superior quality.

apple isn't about to stop using OS X to use Windows, Microsoft isn't about to tell people to switch to Linux instead of buying Windows, Ford isn't about to admit that a Mercedes is a better car and the x264 developers are not about to slaughter their cash cow by doing anything to discredit it like suddenly stopping development and switching to a superior encoding technology.

can't say i really blame them either.
