I am looking to rebuild my server to be able to subtitles on the fly at 1080p. I would like the machine to be able to handle multiple streams and the potential need to transcode as well. Currently, my server handles streaming non-subtitled videos decently, however, I am looking to expand the capabilities to one that can handle subtitles better. The server has a lot of hiccups when trying to deal with subtitles (either subtitles not displaying or lag).
Do you guys have any advice on what sort of CPU/Hardware I should pickup to assist with this? Is something like a AMD 2700x a good purchase, or should I go with Intel on this?
Thank you so much for your advice!
