In MCEBuddy, one can choose to use any number of available Processor Cores to leave overhead for other processes. This allows me to convert ts to HEVC and run Emby at the same time. This works great until after MCEBuddy converts and Emby kicks in Thumbnail Extraction which uses ffmpeg and pegs the processor to 100% or just below leaving no room for other things like LiveTV or even transcoding on the fly for a client. Is there a way to limit ffmpeg to maybe 1 core? I know it will take longer but that's not a big concern anyhow. TIA
Hi everyone. I'm done with Plex, the support stinks and I have lifetime emby from mb3 days. If they fix their stuff I have lifetime there as well. Currently my content is all mkv format video from DVD/bluray. 25TB of storage on flexraid (snapshot) with 2 parity drives. I have a p9x79-ws workstation Mobo with a 3930k, 32gb of 2133Mhz ddr3, an IBM m1015 flashed to IT mode (jbod) and a hauppauge 2250 dual tuner, with an EVGA gt 730 2gb. We have a couple iPads, a couple androids, a Roku 3, an Xbox one s, and a couple laptops/desktops. Playback is primarily thru the Xbox and the Roku (still doing 1080p). I wanted to know about a couple upgrades to my hardware. First, I ordered an e5-2670v2 decacore, which is a hit on single thread but pushes my passmark up over 15,000. It also enables true pcie 3.0 and the other stuff ivy-e improved from sandy-e. (Overall performance gain). For Plex transcodes, this is the right move. For emby? Second, is it worth dropping a pcie ssd for the transcode folder? The 128gb is only $100 right now. Third, would it help with network throughput to jamb another 2-4 ports of gigabit Ethernet in? I already have 2 gig-e ports on the mobo. Any feedback is welcome!
Hi Just a quick question, Under transcoding i can only use upp to 8 cores or auto/max im using 16 cores in my server, Are all used if i lett it stay in auto? is it a limitation of 8 cores? and what is the differences between auto and max) (sorry if this have ben answered already) /Regards
