In this paper, the implementation method for encoding the high resolution videos using high efficiency video coding (HEVC) standard is introduced with a new approach. The HEVC standard, successor to the H.264/AVC standard, is more efficient than the H.264/AVC standard in the encoding high resolution videos. HEVC has been designed to focus on increasing video resolution and increasing the use of parallel processing architectures. Therefor, this approach merging all traditional configuration files used in the encoding process into only one configuration file without removing any parameters used in the traditional methods. Improvements are shown using the proposed approach in terms of encoding time as opposed to the traditional methods by reducing the access time by half which resulting from reducing the data exchange between the configuration files used in this process and without changing the rate-distortion (RD) performance or compression ratio.
