I'm planning to switch mit system from Truenas/Freenas to Proxmox (or do you have any arguments against proxmox and for a different virtualization?). Emby itself works okey on Truenas, except it doesn't support hardware passthrough for GPU trancoding. But the main reason to switch is virtualisation for my other machines which doesn't work too well on Truenas. Atm I'm using a AsRock X470D4U + Ryzen 3600 + LSI SAS 9207-8i SATA / SAS-Controller + 64 GB ECC Ram (ECC was needed for Truenas but I will just keep it). (Maybe I'll also switch the Ryzen 3600 for my Ryzen 3900x and cap energy at 60w which should work just fine.) What GPU would you recommend for smooth transcoding performance for multiple clients (possibly 6-10 parallel at peak). It shouldn't be too energy consuming, so a good mix of performance and efficiency would be nice. From what I saw Nvidia should be the better pick here? And what OS do you reccomend for the emby vm? Are there any advantages in using Windows over Linux? If not I think I'll go for Ubuntu Server.
austie posted a topic in QNAPHas anyone created a virtual machine to allow for hardware offloading to a GTX 1650 lp video card or even ran emby server directly on the QNAP TS-673A with the Ryzen V1500B processor? I've got 8gb ram atm but thinking about expanding to 16gb or 32gb was going to install x2 1tb M.2 NVME drives for the virtual machine space to be raid 0 Any advice would be welcome as my current emby server is a Windows 10 desktop i5 4th gen processor with a GTX 1650 LP card (same on that im going to move to the QNAP) @Luke really love your thought's
are there any downside if I threw MBS on a VM? I'm about to put together a server around an X3440 Xeon. The main purpose is to use this box as a NAS with a raid 5 or 10 to store my valuable photos and videos. But I think that's a lot of hardware and money to just use the box as a NAS. If I can make it a multipurpose unit it'll be perfect. if I'm going to be doing a full NAS OS like FreeNas or similar but if I did that, I wouldn't be able to have MBS so my only choice is to go with Windows Server or Windows 7/8 and just share my files. But I would still need redundancy for certain files but not all.
Yes often times we direct stream the file through the server api, which as far as the client is concerned is identical to file playback through the LAN. Then other times we just do a container swap, keeping the audio/video in their original forms but just changing the container from say, mkv to mp4. These techniques are cheap and will scale to a large number of people easily.
