  1. Newly installed Nvidia Quatro K2000 in a Dell R910 - hw transcoding I just installed a Quatro K2000 2G video card into my Dell R910 into a native16x PCI-e slot. I modified the heatsink and installed a large fan to help keep it cooler and make it fit into the server case. It's staying pretty cool. Now the reason I did this was for several reasons actually. Running on a VM is not always the best approach. Having hardware support should improve performance. I want 4K movies to not skip and stutter while watching them (transcoding - usually always audio) I recently bought an HD HomeRun and want better performance (similar to 4K issues). And this has been something I have been wanting to do for a while. I would rather do this than buy a Synology or QNAP or build a dedicated workstation. All that said... not much improved after installing the card. Maybe a slight improvement, but overall I am still not happy with the implementation. Video still stutters with 4K movies - unwatchable Live TV still stutters unless I pause it for 5 seconds, play again and then it's fine - I feel like this should still not happen. This used to not happen with my 4K movies even with transcoding enabled running on a VM in vCenter on the same server without a physical video card. I am not certain what happened 3-4 years back but before that point, 4K movies played perfectly. Too hard to try and understand what changed. All I want to do is understand how to fix this moving forward. I have several devices I can test this with: Web browsers Nvidia Shield Pro LG OLED TV LG LCD TV Android Phones iPhones iPad PC / MacBook All of them give me the same results. I can provide any details needed to narrow down where the issue is and if in the end this simply is not a good setup (running on a VM with passthrough) then I will buckle down and buy a Synology of QNAP or hell even build a dedicated media box out of some older hardware using the video cards I have here at home. (spare 1030 and 1080).

    NVENC enable with Nvidia Quadro P4000

    hello !, we have completed the installation of emby server on ubuntu 17 machine and we have installed the nvidia drivers for the p4000 board, unfortunately also setting from the transcoding menu of emby with NVENC is not performed on GPU but on CPU, while using the following command on the same machine the NVENC hardware transcoding is performed correctly: "time ffmpeg -i /home/utente/film.mkv -acodec copy -vcodec nvenc /home/utente/test.mp4" What operation should we perform to make the NVENC hardware transcoding work on Emby? Thanks in advance!
