iamneo posted a topic in General DiscussionI have a question about performance... I currently have a windows server 2008 R2 x64 with about 40 TB of storage that I am using for my emby server. It has 64GB of memory. It is currently close to being maxed out for space. I am considering options for upgrading the server. Should I go to Windows 10 x64 Pro or should I go with windows server 2012 x64? Anyone notice if there is a performance advantage with using server software as apposed to Standard Windows OS? Would adding a decent video card improve transcoding performance? With some of my videos coming in as 2160p, I have noticed that server2008 struggles to stream it to various devices. What are your thoughts and recommendations? As well does anyone have any apps they use to connect to Emby that work well? thanks... Stan...
I know the Media Server does not require a Rocket of a computer. I am running Emby on a 1st Generation I-7, which might be over kill. When I upgraded my home computer, I made this one my Media Server. I use Ceton TV Tuner (4) and often stream Live TV over the internet--sometimes 2 people. My question is related to the Video Card. I am currently using the Video "Card" build into the mother board. It has a "Windows Experience Index" of 3.2. I have a NVidia stand alone card that has an index of 6.7. It seems to run fine as it is with the on-board video. Will there be any benefit? Is it worth the effort to put the card in my Media Server? Thanks GaryDZ
