Video encoding h.265/HEVC
#1
I have tvheadend running on a raspberry pi B+ which is automatically recording tv shows. But these need much space because they're mainly MPEG2 coded.
So my plan is to use another single board computer to transcode them to h.265/HEVC (using ffmpeg, from experience it's the most reliable programm).

My question is, if the Pine 64 is strong enough to do this task (video properties: 720x576, 25 fps MPEG-TS, audio isn't important and can be passed through. I'd use the x265 library with preset fast). It doesn't have to be real-time, 5-10 fps would be enough.
If there's no other choice h.264/AVC would also work, but I definetly prefer h.265. Does somebody have experiences or can try, what the Pine 64 can do?

The current Pine64 still not yet optimize for HEVC transcode. However for 578p 5-10fps may works even without optimization.
