I recently got a Laptop with an Intel Core i5 7th Gen cpu.
So I switched on the "Intel Quicksync" hardware encoding and tried to cut & convert an MPEG2 TS 720x576 movie using the default settings.
BUT to my unpleasant surprise, the resulting MP4 H264 file was almost twice as big as the MPEG2 source file!
While the "software encoder" creates a reasonable small output file as expected.
Am I missing something? Do i have to use a certain profil?
Please assist, thank!
