Video Codec for scans to put online

Recommended Posts

The software I have offers 3 video codec H264, H265 and MPEG-4. Is there a better one to use for making files lower size but still look good? I'm using them on scanned 16mm film or old 16mm films taken off of a DVD.

I mean .h265 is the best, with the highest quality compression, but a lot of streaming sites can't take them yet. So I'd use .h264 for compatibility reasons. For 1080p, I generally do 15-18Mbps .h264 files unless a client wants higher quality. Most BluRay disc's (which are the same codec) are 25-30Mbps by contrast.
