I'm about to produce my first USB stick delivery instead of dvd. Is H265 now universal for pc players and smart tvs or should I stick to H264?

I would stick to H.264 unless you are absolutely certain your client will be able to play H.265

My big 4K smart tv does not play 265.

i'd leave CABAC off in h.264 encode settings or your TV's processor may not be able to playback fast enough.

Don't think you can.

Keep bitrate no higher than 30, and it will be ok in most cases.

The sticks the duplication firm uses are only rated at 19.5 for read so I will go for HD at 15.

you'd have to use another encoder. adobe leaves cabac on by default. if you have a newer TV, it might be fast enough to decode cabac.

Apple's Compressor turns on CABAC entropy mode for multi-pass encoding. Perhaps Pr does the same? CABAC is also only available in the Main or High profiles; Baseline is CAVLC only.

Further, hardware encoding often has very limited options; software encoding is the correct choice when you need to start specifying profiles, levels and entropy modes.

I tested my theory.

These settings:

NB: It wasn't until I selected the Baseline profile that CABAC was turned off. Hardware/software encoding, VBR/CBR, 1-pass or 2-pass, none of those made any difference.
