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
solabc16 posted a topic in SynologyHello All Starting with stable release 18.104.22.168-3 (released today), Emby Server now includes improved h/w transcoding support for platforms that support Intel's VA-API.
