Emby server on ARM Device (Open Hour Chameleon - RockChip RK3288)

Hi,

 

I've installed my emby server on a open hour chameleon device (arm based with a rockchip rk3288)

the server is running fine (lubuntu based) - after some problems with SMB / NTF. (I can post a howto later)

 

My target is to transcode my 1080p mkvs also for chromecast, iphone etc.

is that possible? ist the rockchip cpu fast enough? (quad core 1.8ghz)

 

when I run a video in the browser I always get the could not play error (html5 player, android device with vlc etc)

 

where do I find the logs on the emby server? (/var/log/emby.log has no entries)

 

Cheers

thank you!

 

I had to install the official ffmpeg instead of the ubuntu recommended libav.

 

seams to work on this device. I can also transcode 1080p mkvs to my chromecast / browser / android

a little bit laggy atm - but I'll try to decrease the mono-sgen load (atm 0.50) and hope it's getting better...

So in the end is the RK3288 fast enough to transcode for Chromecast? In the end I am interested in the AC3 to AAC conversion as my current RPI3 cannot handle this.

not really. I switched to a 300$ Intel Nuc and configured VAAPI to transcode over the CPU's GPU.

3-5 parallel 1080p transcodes for Chromecast are no problem now.
