Recommended Posts

Hi, we are developing a infotaiment project to our college, what we want to use is emby as a video server, our goal is connect at least 50 smartphones to MB, but right now we have a big issue because when the phone number 10 is connected to the server the CPU usage is 100% and the video delay.

 

We want to now if MB could be the solution to this project?

Ok, so they are transcoding. That is the reason. You want to use mp4 with h264/aac, and check the bitrate setting in the web client. If you do that and you can get them to direct stream, there will be no transcoding logs produced and it should handle 50 no problem.

I hate to ask, but .... could you provide more details than that?

Or an example ffmpeg command line to convert the file to an ideal codec?

This would be GREATLY appreciated!!

Something else comes to mind....  I assume all of these devices (for testing) are on wifi?  the same wifi AP?

Yes they are on the same AP, but all of theam use ffmpeg to transcode de video and that make a 100% CPU usage
