    Finding which videos in a directory of various videos are H.265?


    I have a directory of over a thousand mixed H.264 and H.265 mobile phone videos.

    Is there a way I can filter them in Windows Explorers, so I can move them to H.264 and H.265 folders?

    I've checked which columns I have available to me in Details view but none seem relevant.

    There is one relevant column, but it's not in a simple readable form. You can however sort by that column to group the different types of encoding. It's the 'Video compression' column.

    Download MediaTab 1.4.1

    This extension to the Properties sheet may also give you a way to check which file is encoded by what. Use with the above to confirm the codec identity, you should have a way forward.

    Ah!

    Using that and this website, it appears I have three types:

    1. 5634504D-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71 (MPEG-4 Part 2)
    2. 34363248-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71 (H.264)
    3. Unspecified

    I'll presume the Unspecified ones (there are dozens of them) are H.265.

    I'm not sure what your 'unspecified' types may be. I specifically created an H.265 encoded file for my screenshot and it shows as compression type {43564548-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71}

    Your link list this as...
    H.265, Main/Main Still Picture profile 0x43564548 ('HEVC') {43564548-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71}

    This is a sample of the 'Unspecified' video files in question (from MediaInfo):

    It appears I need a new way to differentiate them, beside the 'Video compression' column.

    Is "Video Format" and "Codec" and "Compression type" the same thing?

    But Dalchina's link says "A codec is a device or software that is used to compress or decompress a digital media file". So surely each 'codec' will be listed as a different 'compression type'? (or more accurately a family of compression types, as there are baseline settings that can be applied when encoding). A video file format such as .mp4 can contain a video stream encoded by one of many codecs.

    Not in this topic! I have absolutely no clue how to group / search videos according to the codec or compression method.
