Is it possible to integrate H.265 or VP9 codecs with Live server or directly to Media Server. How could this be achieved?

The Live Server has support for encoding with any custom codec.
If you have your own codec (encoder) implemented as DirectShow transform filter, you can use it in Live Server.

Our SDK explains how to do that; you may need to develop a component to programmatically assign a bitrate to your codec.

As of June 2014, Unreal Live Server does not ship with VP9/H265 codecs.
We may add these codecs in a future versions of Live Server.

So for now, as said before, you need to either develop these DirectShow encoders using open source libraries

or obtain commercial implementations from companies like MainConcept, LeadTools etc..
