I’m working on an OTiS build and wanted to see if anyone had some experience/thoughts on the non-transcoding load on the CPU for Plex.
I’ll be running Plex (and only Plex) on Ubuntu, and I’m eyeing a Celeron G4900 as this will be in a very small case and it should handle QSV transcoding just fine. My concern is that other tasks will become very sluggish, specifically subtitle burning and library/metadata updates.
Does anyone have experience with a similar scenario? Would love to get some input to see if I should get a slightly more powerful CPU. My main concern is the subtitles as those would actually affect stream performance. Thanks!
