264 or 265 codec

hello what kind of codec you guys suggest to upload? 264 or x265
what it seems 265 needs far less storage but needs a lot of transcoding
but 264 needs more storage and it will consume more bandwidth but on some devices it direct play on end device.
what do you suggest?

best

I use 264 because I do not want to have transcoding

H265 is compressed, good if content is 1080p or higher, but requires some CPU work, but worh it if you have hardware for it. Else H264. Im currently working on VP9 .webm and Vorbis for audio… Currently trying to figure out best encoding options in ffmpeg and will test on my clients after…
