Hi,

i am searching for a low energy hardware for my emby server that supports hardware transcoding for 2 oder 3 streams at the same time.

What can you recommend me?

Regards
Manuel

Hi,

 

I already have a Synology NAS, but I don't want to use that as an Emby server.

What Do you say about Intel NUC NUC6CAYH?

 

This NUC has an Intel Celeron J3455 CPU with Intel Quick Sync support.

@mws, My Emby server run on an Odroid H2 and the performance is very good. No problem to hardware transcode 3 streamsat the same time.

I haven't run an Emby server on one of these, but I did put windows on one. I found it very sluggish doing basic tasks in windows, granted I only put in 8gb of ram.

I ended up using them all with LibreELEC to run Kodi.

Now they're sitting in a box in my basement since I switched to NVidia Shields and the android app.
