jang430 Posted February 25, 2018 Share Posted February 25, 2018 (edited) Hi. I plan to build an Unraid NAS that is capable of transcoding 4K content to non-4K TV. I'd like to be able to stream to 2-3 non-4K TV simultaneously. I presume Plex server is needed to transcode on the fly? I also saw on some review of Synology that there are models that their own app is capable to transcode the 4K content as Plex doesn't have direct hold of the hardware transcoding engine of the processor to be able to transcode on the fly. What this means is there are models that are ready for Plex to transcode efficiently, while there are also models (different processor) that are capable to transcode even without Plex. This is done by Synology's own native converter app. Hope members here can suggest an inexpensive processor to do this. Celeron or Pentium tops. Furthermore, 10-bit capable. I heard motherboard needs to be ready also. Regards, Jason Edited February 26, 2018 by jang430 spelling Quote Link to comment
