Simple x264/x265 Launcher is a video encoder with a variety of configurations and preset templates. Includes full batch encoding support, as well as running several encoding jobs in parallel.

The program is a lightweight front-end for the x264 H.264/AVC as well as the x265 H.265/HEVC encoder, based on the Qt toolkit. The program also uses the 64-Bit version of x264 with the 32-Bit version of Avisynth, which lets you use 32-Bit Avisynth plug-ins (e.g. DGDecodeNV) and still benefit from the speed improvements of 64-Bit x264.

Writes settings to: Application folder
  • Avisynth input only available with Avisynth 2.5+ installed
  • YV16/YV24 color spaces require Avisynth 2.6
  • VapourSynth input only available with VapourSynth R19+ installed
Stealth: ? Yes

@jenss: don't think so, it's still available if you click "enter website" link in the bottom right corner -- the landing page is a form of war protest by the web owner.

Symantec Endpoint Protection is detecting netc.exe as a risk, and quarantining it.

Sorry, errata corrige (info's missing here on portablefreeware): you can avoid the user's %localappdata% folder entries renaming "x264_launcher.exe" into "x264_launcher_portable.exe".
