- Encoding the HEVC video takes a long time. The increased coding efficiency of HEVC comes at the cost of much more complicated compression techniques, which not only put more strain on your computer’s hardware but also took a lot longer to encode videos than H264/VP9.
- High licensing and royalty fees
- Encoding H.265 content necessitates a high-end hardware configuration.
