First of all, thanks for the great, free service. I look forward to supporting in the future.
To the point - I wasn't able to carry out these steps:
# Reinstall FFMpeg from ports with lame option enabled
# enable the lame option
# enable the ass subtitles option
make install clean
Because of read-only access. No multimedia folder existed. Instead, I just reinstalled FFMpeg (2.8 I think) - everything is working, I'm just wondering if maybe the CPU usage would be more efficient if lame was enabled. I really know nothing about media files and transcoding, sorry. But from what I've heard from others, an i5 processor should easily be able to serve several clients (~4mbps). Right now, at least when the movie initially plays, the CPU hits 90-100% usage, 80% for lower quality files. Does that sound about right? Thanks.
