OnePlus 5: how to shoot in H.265 (HEVC) | Guide

Oneplus 5

The internal memory of our smartphones, despite the increases in capacity implemented by manufacturers in the succession of generations, even today may prove to be limiting for many users. It certainly does not need to be a renowned videomaker, for example, for riprendere and accumulate enough footage to run the risk of running out of space. In the case of OnePlus 5in any case, at least this problem can be easily solved by carrying out shooting in H.265 (HEVC).

The format High-Efficiency Video Coding was created to allow maximum compression and, with the same quality, allows a significant memory savings compared to the older and widespread H.264 (AVC). In today's guide we will show you how to enable this codec on OnePlus 5 by editing a system file, which will allow you to lower the bitrate to 24Mbps (default is 42Mbps) in 4K, 11Mbps (by default it is 20Mbps) in 1080p8Mbps (default is 14Mbps) in 720p. All of this, of course, without significant loss of quality.
