Conversions on PR4100

Recommended Posts

kaledi

Hello,

 

I have the PR4100 and recently moved from Plex to EMBY.  I'd like to understand the capabilities of this set up for transcoding.

I've set up a couple of test conversions HEVC to HEVC and the conversation speed is very slow.  The CPU doesn't seem to be maxed out.

Therefore, I'd like to know the following

1. Is Hardware encoding available for AVC and HEVC

2. Does a background conversion take a low priority (to explain the slow conversion rate).

3. How many 1080p AVC (or HEVC) stream encodes can we expect to be achievable concurrently

Hi there, have you checked out the server's conversion settings? You may have unchecked the option to run conversions at full speed.

Yes, it is set to full speed and max thread count

Do you mean a log file or something else?

Here is the log file from one of the conversions that took an absolute age.  This was the second or third attempt with this file and I even set it to convert to 'original' quality.

Other conversions i've attempted have been quicker.

And to be clear - can I check that PR4100 supports both AVC and HEVC hardware encoding?

 

thanks
