Keep in mind, that h.264 is not natively supported by Windows 10 (and not by
8 I think). You need to install a h.264 filter!
Up to now, I didn't found a separate h.264 filter installer, which only
installs h.264, only bundled in a codec package installer like the LAV

Seems most folks use h.264 for encoding video, but being patent-encumbered
it requires negotiating a license with MPEGLA for commercial use.

I have a batch of files I need to re-encode - what non-patent-encumbered
codec could I use that will be supported on all platforms?
