In MCEBuddy, one can choose to use any number of available Processor Cores to leave overhead for other processes. This allows me to convert ts to HEVC and run Emby at the same time. This works great until after MCEBuddy converts and Emby kicks in Thumbnail Extraction which uses ffmpeg and pegs the processor to 100% or just below leaving no room for other things like LiveTV or even transcoding on the fly for a client. Is there a way to limit ffmpeg to maybe 1 core? I know it will take longer but that's not a big concern anyhow.

 

TIA

Have you explored the server transcoding options?

Not recently but I didn't know these applied to thumbnail image extraction too. I'll take another look. Thanks.

The Advanced Settings don't seem to specifically address this issue. I suppose cutting the thread count would be a place to start but that may mess with quality for transcoding files for remote clients at the same time. I was more or less thinking of a specific setting that could be in the Thumbnail Image Extraction Scheduled Task. Can it be something specific in either location of the server settings?
