I guys . I'm totally new to emby so i hope my question won't be too stupid for you
Status : HP n 54l with xpenology and plex media server. I want to switch from plex to emby because there is nos significant improvement on hardware transcoding since a year and i need a plex pass to use it.
Purpose : Adding a Nvidia gt1030 for Hardware transcoding on the fly 4K HEVC from it to read it from a distant place.
Is there any chance it works ?
Like i dont whant to waste my money I decided to try emby on my gaming computer (gtx980 + 6600k + win 10) to see how mature was hardware transcoding on Emby.
Just installed the server and running it. No configuration other than switching to Nvidia NVENC.
Switch to my Z3 tablet with the android app and do this :
Try to read a full HD movie in H264 - without transcoding => OK CPU 1% NO GPU
- Transcoding to 720P 2mbps => 13% CPU 20% GPU (why ? shoudln't the cpu stay to 1%)
Try to read a Full HD movie in H265 - without transcoding => OK CPU 1% NO GPU
- transcoding to anything Doesn't work . (log attached).
Any advice on the probability to decode 4h hevc with Hpn54l + gt1030 is welcome.(most of all for say to me it will works )
Any help to understand why my test was a faile dis welcome too.
Let me now if you need any other informations or If i forgot something.
