Dashboard Transcoding Speed Measurement Change

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if it might make better sense to change the transcoding speed shown on the dashboard to make it more "useful"

 

Right now when I see it showing a transcoding speed of 28 FPS, I then need to know if this a 23.9 FPS video and the server is keeping up great, or is this a 30+ FPS video and the server is no longer keeping up, and while you can tell to some extent by the transcoder buffer bar if the server has started other task (even not related to Emby) you may be to a point where you will run out of transcoder buffer.

 

I had 2 thoughts on alternatives.

 

1: Show the videos Actual FPS next to the transcoding FPS so you can see if transcoding is exceeding it. Seems simplest IMO.

or

2: Show the transcoding speed in % or multiplier. I.e. Video FPS is 30, Transcoding is happening at 45, show 150% or 1.5x

Great idea! How about this format:

Transcoding 45fps at 150% speed

And make the numbers change colors:

Green: 150% and over

Orange: 100% < 150%

Red: under 100%
