"Failed" is a very short error description. You should provide us with
your command line and the complete, uncut console output.

FWIW, specifying "-f hevc" as an output option should do the trick. I
didn't check whether ffmpeg uses any file extensions for triggering
H.265 elementary streams. (And you might get errors regarding the pixel
format, but I think they lead clearly to their solutions.)
