I have a Macbook Pro 15" for mid 2012 with 16GB RAM. Whenever I run emby server the fans kick in 100% and never stop while emby server is running.
First question: Is this normal?
PS: I am not running anything else. Just vanilla Mac OS Catalina with no added software running at startup.
The fans are so loud that it is not fun watching a movie while laptop is in the same room. There is also some issues with streaming to TV where the movie just freezes and I wait 5-15 seconds till it starts playing again. Network is no issue as far as I can tell. Both TV and laptop are close to the router (15 feet) and both on 5ghz.
IF this is just the way it is because I have old hardware and need something better, can you please point me to a budget setup that I can buy?
