We're still trying to chase this down. If you know someone knowledge about this in the freebsd community let them know we'll be happy to employ them temporarily to help us with it. Thanks.

I'm wondering if there is like a hidden option in the web interface that the user can enforce hardware transcoding.

That option would just hard use the render node, instead of relying on the ffdetect to detect it.

That way we could rule out that Emby *can/cannot* use a render node and it is a bug in the fftdetect binary.

Only if you're using the server on FreeBSD.

Thanks. I will look on the FreeNAS forums to see if someone has already asked and if not will see if anyone fits the bill :)

It’s possible ,

But probably still pretty experimental.

Workaround that many uses, is having the host run ESXi, then FreeBSD / FreeNAS as a VM. That allows you to spin up “whatever” next to it, and get full local speed.

ESXi uses pass trough to the HBA for the drives, and pass trough GPU’s to other VM’s

So, at least according to this, where they are discussing enabling it on Plex, it needs to be on FreeBSD 12, so we (FreeNAS users anyways) may just have to wait.

Looks like beta release will start in Dec.
