Transcode in H265

Recommended Posts

As explained in the other thread Emby Server does no encoding while recording.  It's just saving the streams AS IS into a TS (transport stream) file.  In your situation you would want this on the fly h.265 encoding (this thread) for Live TV use as well as using the convert feature to do the post process conversion to h.265 for long term storage.

Your post above shows why Emby is taking it's time with this trying to get it correct.  There is a lot of moving parts in Emby that need to be taking into consideration.

I know, that's why I asked for that in the feature request thread.  Anyone watching live tv is either getting the mpeg2 stream (probably not) or hitting the transcoder.  Basically wanting a transcoding shim between the incoming mpeg2 stream and disk.

Would be perfectly happy to simply store the TV show as an HLS stream ready for streaming.
