Plex cloud scale transcoding


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I supose that you like as me wants to have a very low powered NAS with lot of TB of media and have running a plex server.

But the main problem is low power = slow transcoding.

So I view a topic in the Plex forum talking about remote Transcoding, the guy who talk about it had a script in python to execute transcoding in remote machines. So awesome. the main problem is that you needed to setup it manually.

I wanted to have it automatically using cloud computing.


it's for this reason that I wanted to do a proof of concept and I create a plex docker with this automtic feature

If you want to try it and give me some feedback or help me with the development. go ahead :)

here is the sources and the docker and docker compose.

The dockers are in docker hub ready to use.

I couldn't do it work over unraid I needed to create a KVM with an ubuntu.

The problem it's the NFS server docker it seems that not work over unraid I don't know why, i'm not an expert, if you can help me I appreciate it.

here is the link with all.(This is my first project on github, tell me if I have something wrong)


Thank guys
