heypaleblue posted a topic in HardwareHey Guys, I just bought emby lifetime and am building a new budget machine for it. I'm building it under the assumption that my GPU is the piece that needs to be the most powerful as it will handle my video en/decodes and the proc/mobo/mem need to be sufficient enough to run windows and emby. Specs: ASRock B450 Gaming-ITX-ac AMD Ryzen 3 2200G Quad Core Radeon RX570 12GB DDR4-2666 (4GB) + 8GB 120GB M.2 boot drive (same performance different size) 1TB,3TB, 3TB 7200 RPM Media Drives Media Background: While a significant portion of my media is 480p encoded with H264 and AAC audio future forward I will only be purchasing blurays to add to my digital collection and will be ripping them with a web optimized H.264 30FPS 8bit color, AAC audio (avcodec) setting with light NLMeans denoise filter. Questions: My Goal is 10 streams at 1080p or lower. Should I return the RX570 for: an RX580/590 - I figure extra the extra oomph and more ram from a stronger card will help me handle more simultaneous streams. It's only 10 bucks more. a 1660 - 10 series and 16 series seems to be recommended with this driver patch that allows unlimited simultaneous streams With Specs Like these, how many concurrent streams can I expect to handle and what could I do to improve it? @ @@Sammy @@lightsout
Greetings all you emby users out there! I've been selected to set up a emby server for our gaming community where we are gonna put our own made movies - and movies in general onto the server. Im guessing that the load of the server will be streaming up to 10 people at a time when we sit in discord and watch the same movie while talking about it with files around the 4-8gb range. For this i have found a used computer that im very close to buying and it has the following specs: Specs: Case: Fractal Design R6 MOBO: MSI X470 Gaming Pro CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700x 3.7GHz Cooler: Noctua NH-U14S RAM: Kingston HyperX 2x16GB DDR4 2666Hz SSD: Samsung 970 EVO 500GB M.2 PSU: Corsair RM750x Fully Modular GPU: MSI GTX 730 Internet: 100/100 Mbps 1: Is this rougly enough for what im gonna use it for ? i fear i am missing something cause i am no near a pro at useing a emby server yet. 2: I've read that some people say that around 2000 in passmark for each person regarding CPU power and the ryzen gets around 16971 so it seems to be on the low side, but the server have tons of ram, is there anything i can do to "take the load off the cpu" TLDR, is the following spec fine for up to 10 person watching something at the same time, or is my PC/internet too slow I truly hope that there is a true emby pro out there that can comment on this - and in advance, thank you all for the help!
Hi all, I am considering a new server build. Unfortunately, someone has had bad experiences with the threadripper. Who has good Ryzen 1700x builds? I am considering this over Intel, but have no experience with AMD since the first Athlon days. (shortly after electricity was invented, it feels). I'd really like to hear people's recent experiences with AMD.
I'm running Emby on an old 4 core Lynnfield Xeon processor. It's running as a guest in Proxmox VE, along with several other VMs (OpenMediaVault, Nextcloud, Minecraft, etc). I've been thinking about building a dedicated box just for Emby since I've spread the gospel such that I'm regularly having 2-3 users on at any given time and the poor machine just can't keep up if titles need to be transcoded. I'm thinking a box a separate server would hold the files, so the Emby hardware would just serve/trancode. I've seen folks talk about hardware acceleration and I'm curious how robust it is in Emby. Is there a max number of users that, say, Quicksync can serve? Are other users denied access, or can it serve two users with Quicksync and the rest with CPU transcode? Are there any distributions that have a recent enough version of ffmpeg to work with hardware encoding or am I looking at installing a third-party package or compiling ffmpeg myself? Is anyone using Arch Linux with hardware encoding on Intel or Nvidia hardware? Are there any plans for a Radeon/Ryzen hardware acceleration solution? Does anyone think I would be better off encoding my library to minimize trancoding instead of fitting hardware to the problem I'm facing? Sorry if I'm asking too many questions. Thanks, folks.
