(Without looking at your actual command line that looks very complicated)
Every (re-) encode is equivalent to a loss of quality, so unless you need
smaller files (with worse quality) or smaller resolutions, you should not
If you encode something that you don't want to keep in its current state,
libx265 is supposed to provide better quality / smaller file size than libx264,
don't know about the hardware encoders: Usually, they quickly provide bad
