Post subject:  Option for HEVC Preference

Would it be possible to add a feature to prefer downloading movies and/or TV shows in the HEVC format. Much like the preference that allows for the option of 1080p first then 720p second, etc. Maybe something like HEVC x265 first then x264 second (and the reverse for those who do not want HEVC). I know you can filter for HEVC and filter out 264, but then you lose movies/shows that have not yet been converted. Thank you for all your hard work to make Media Center Master the best media library.

There's already a very recent request for 'preferred' terms and options that I accepted that would cover this use case.

One more thought on this if it has not already been considered. Add the option for the option that searches for 'better versions' of a movie and/or tv show to make the HEVC version (or not) one of the better options with which to replace the existing movie. This will improve overall automation of maintaining our libraries. :) Thank you!

Hello Pete,

I'm currently running 2.18 Build 9618.773. I see the new HEVC options under the advanced settings but my download options still only show "Prefer 720 HD, download SD after 12 hours etc etc)

I was hoping this addition would include a new download option such as.

"Download in 720 HD HEVC if available, 720 HD x264 after 12 hours if unavailable"

There currently does not seem to be any way to specify that downloads should prefer HEVC. Only an option to actually allow them. Am I missing something where I should be setting a preference for HEVC over x264?

Thank you

Allowing HEVC automatically prefers them. Each torrent or Usenet source is checked for HEVC results first, then all results.

Thanks Pete,

I had open the more detailed thread as I didn't want to hijack this one in case it was a different scenario.

Will update and report back if there's any further issues.

Cheers
