Does ffmpeg support h.265 streaming of an IP camera? I would like to use
copy mode, just take the video from the camera and send it to youtube with
no extra processing.

This is the command I'm using

c:\ffmpeg\bin\ffmpeg1.exe -re -rtsp_transport tcp -i "rtsp://
admin:password at" -f lavfi -f dshow -rtbufsize 2000M
-thread_queue_size 5096 -i audio="virtual-audio-capturer" -c:a libmp3lame
-ab 128k -ar 44100 -c:v copy -threads 0 -bufsize 512k -f hevc "rtmp://

I have done a lot of googling and haven't found anyone trying to use h.265
in  stream copy mode.
