    What gives better quality. Currently converting all my DVD and Blu rays to digital. Size doesn't matter. H264 two pass takes about the same as h265 single pass. Quality looks the same to me

    H.265 is more efficient than H264 and should give you better quality at a considerably smaller file size. That being said H.264 is more broadly used and universally compatible which is why I still use it over H.265.
