  1. Hi guys, I'm currently figuring out how I can enable ffmpeg to use my /dev/dri/renderD128 device which is the iGPU of my intel chip. Currently I have the following things covered: - drm module is loaded and /dev/dri/renderD128 is accessible in jail - emby user has access to the device node - I have installed libva-intel-driver and it is picked up by vainfo - ffmpeg is compiled with libva support I'm sure that emby can access the node and use it with the ffmpeg supplied by emby. As show in the following command output: Even if I supply an input file and output file for the sake of example it starts transcoding just fine on hardware. This indicates to me that the user emby is able to use /dev/dri/renderD128 and should be able to use the device node and hardware. In the web interface under transcoding I see nothing popping up as possible hardware accelerators as show in picture. I have attached my hardware detection log and my most recent server log where the server starts up and does some hardware detection stuffs. This is my output from vainfo: Log.txt Log.txt
  2. With the new Emby server release, I see that there are two options for each hardware encoder/decoder now: the existing VA-API one and a new QuickSync one. My Emby Server runs directly in Debian on a Pentium Gold G5420, identified as Coffee Lake (gen9.5). So what's the difference? Which one is preferred, and why? (Technical details welcome.) Is this an "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" case or a "try it and see what works better/faster" deal? TIA
  3. Hey, my emby Server setup: Ubuntu Server 18.04 Intel Xeon E-2126G (Quick Sync Video, H.265 encode/​decode, VP9 encode/​decode) P11C-I Intel No I stuck on get hardware transcoding working. I installed VAAPI but emby don´t show any available hardware transcoding settings. Is here a way to get it work?
  4. So, lately I've been using NVENC with a crf of 18, and the ultrafast preset. Most of the time this seems to be fine, but sometimes video's will just start glitching. This is usually the case with videos with AAC audio. So, I heard QuickSync is more reliable, but doesn't this run entirely on the CPU? I prefer encoding on the GPU, since it's stronger than my CPU. Anyways, I'd like to know what settings I should use. I don't really mind a little quality loss, just nothing too severe, but what I find most important is that every video plays back without any glitches, and that the encoding process is fast. My specs: 8GB RAM i5-4440 CPU GTX 970 GPU

    Hardware encoding on Ubuntu Server

    Hi, few weeks ago there was an announcement that Emby Server will (is already) support Intel Quick Sync for transcoding. This is basically I believe the biggest step forward in terms of transcoding that can be achieved. Even a low budget Intel HW with QS support will be able to decode heavy streams with ease, probably even multiple ones. Running a Braswell based board based on N3150 SoC would do an incredible job, why waste money on expensive, load, power hungry hw like i3-i5-i7 when an N3150 can do the job just fine? @@Luke is there any progress on this on Ubuntu Server (14.04.x LTS or later), running kernel 3.9 or 4.4.0? Is it already working and ready for testing? If not, what would you say, when can we expect to have this feature enabled? Important to have this support available on kernel version higher then 4.3, as there is a fix starting from kernel 4.3 that with previous kernels prior 4.3 caused serious problems on Braswell based boards. Prior to that, a patch needed.

    trouble with intel hwacc vaapi

    Dear Community. I am quiet new to emby. Until now i like it very much, it is clean and simple. On my archlinux box i am playing around with it. During that time i tried the hw acceleration of my i7-3770, which supports h264 accel through vaapi within ffmpeg. Running vaapi as root just works fine. Emby fails.

  7. Hello All Starting with stable release (released today), Emby Server now includes improved h/w transcoding support for platforms that support Intel's VA-API. For some recent background, take a look at this thread: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/48771-va-api-pixelation-on-ds416play/?p=505088. Any questions, issues or comments please post them here... Best - James

    Intel Quick Sync

    A quick question about the new transcoding option.. I have a Radeon HD 7850 video card and don't use the internal intel video card on my Haswell system. Will this still work? Is it processing outside of the video card?
  9. So, got my server rebuilt and am ready to test out emby again. New system is running on an i5 6600k, so has quicksync available. Yay! I'm running Proxmox on the bare metal to handle vm's. I'm running Emby on a Debian 8 container, pretty vanilla install (just added repo, apt-get update, apt-get install). Went thru settings & set transcode to Intel Quick Sync explicitly. inxi says this about my video card in the container: Graphics: Card: Intel Device 1912 bus-ID: 00:02.0 chip-ID: 8086:1912 Display Server: N/A driver: N/A tty size: 204x59 Advanced Data: N/A for root So it seems it should work (assuming Linux support is there - the 20+pages of the big thread are . . . hard to follow. thanks guys!
  10. Looks interesting. Would be great if it could run MBT or the Windows 8.1 app smoothly. There is also a Linux cheaper version. http://www.engadget.com/2015/01/07/intel-compute-stick/
  11. I thought this was interesting. I love my NUC. The next generation will definitely be something to look out for. Intel’s NUC 2.0 leaks: The next unit of Steam Machines and home theater PCs
