What are the advantages/disadvantages of installing Emby Server via Docker?

Recommended Posts

As the title says, what are the advantages and disadvantages of having Emby Server run via Docker rather than being installed directly onto the machine?  Are there any performance differences at all?  Can docker take advantage of nVidia hardware acceleration?  Is it worth migrating to Docker?

 

My current setup:

Ubuntu 19.04 (headless, no GUI)

CPU: Ryzen 1700X

RAM: 32GB DDR4 3200

HD: 500GB m.2 NVMe

Hi, the main difference is that with Docker we only consider hardware acceleration to be experimental. It can work just as well, but there will be some setup required on your part and we haven't fully documented all of it at this stage. This is a very good resource that may help though:
