I would like to know if the Raspberry Pi 4 can do H265/HEVC Encoding at all. I am not bothered if it can't do it in real time as I would like to run jobs for encoding the video in the background, store and then play. Is this possible? I am aware that a similar question has been asked but does not seem to be very clear.
If the answer is no to this question, is it possible to plug in an external USB GPU to the Pi 4 and use this to do the encoding?
