Hi All

 

I got my hands on a very good condition HP micro server.

I am planning to user Windows server 2019 on it as i am confident administering that.

 

I know the micro-server CPU is very dated and will struggle to do the basic trans-coding., So heres my question, Can i stick a graphics card to tell emby to use that for trans-code?

 

also, budget is tight, so what would be the cheapest graphics card i get away with 4k. most likely to be an eBay job

 

there wont be more than 2 stream ever.

 

thanks in advance

That should work. Just make sure it's got enough cooling. It'll get hot when transcoding.

Depends which HP MICROSERVER it is.

 

I don't think it would fit an N36L/N54L.

Not sure if it's worth it to be honest.

 

I have friends and family who have the N36L and they are able to Direct Play everything.

 

I'd also install Windows 10 instead of Server 2019, as you don't need a server OS for Emby.
