Throttle Transcode / Remux

I can't seem to find anything relating to throttling transcoding / remux?


Problem:


  • 4K Transcoding / Remux - It uses a lot of space thus drives are filling up based on transcoding settings at the moment as Emby is transcoding the whole file, thus with a 4K remux / transcode this could be 60GB and multiple this if you have multiple users.

Remuxing seems to cause problems event when its out remuxing audio / container as it will fill up the disk.


Fix:


  • Ability to throttle transcoding to be 5-10 minutes ahead of current time

The history is we used to try to do this and it didn't work very well.  The tools we use for transcoding don't really provide any way to accomplish this goal.

 

Always possible we can revisit it though.

Def think this should be a core future, especially in larger deployments of Emby and even more so with 4K content becoming more mainstream...

 

Are there any workarounds? Filesystem hacks? I tried putting transcode into /dev/shm but this just causes system to halt.

ffmpeg doesn't have any kind of api for this so it would require us to add these features to it ourselves.
