Hi
I am planning to get a VPS or dedicated on hetzner or contabo to install emby and share with my friends about 25 or more people.
Will VPS be enough or should i get a dedicated?
Which specs should i look for? Ram, CPU or what should be the minimum specs?
For ex for now, i have a 30GB interstellar movie with H265 HEVC codec, on Apple TV Emby player with 100mbit connection it is not playing flawlessly. What is the reason do you think?
Thanks

If it's a remote connection you may want to try lowering the in-app quality setting to force it to transcode.

H265 HEVC codec, if transcoding is required you may have to control the bitrate as the video bitrate is doubled when converted to H264 to maintain quality.  So you may need to apply limits to quality when this happens.
