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? 

 

thanks

Hi, it really depends on what the server is doing. I have a 4-5 year old macbook air that I use for testing and I don't see this with that, although granted a 2012 model is a bit older.

 

Can you attach an Emby Server log from the time that this happened? Thanks.

Thank you Luke and Mastrmind11.

Let me look into transcoding first and see if I still have an issue.
