Asrock J4205-itx with DS918+ (Hardware acceleration)

Question

Hello everybody.

I installed on my ASrock J4205-itx Mainboard the Junsloader 1.03a2 for DS918+.

That's worked perfectly and everything is fine.

But my Hardware transcoding didn't worked. it works only with Software encoding and really really slow.

Here is my complete Setup:

 

Asrock J4205-ITX

Intel Pentium J4205 Intel HD 505 Graphics Apollolake (the original in the DS918+ is Intel Celeron J3455 Quad Core Apollolake Intel® HD-Grafik 500 )

2x 4GB 1600mhz DDR3 RAM

DS918+

DSM 6.2 (23739)

Jun's loader 103a2 with extra.lzma for DS918+ v0.5

Real MAC/SN

 

So my first Step was to check the activation.conf.

Everything fine. Then i checked the /dev/dir folder

Also everything fine.

Then I checked the processes and when I offline transcode there is only the ffmpeg process and not the gst-launch-1.0 process.

But I dont know why.

For a 45min Video (h265) i need over 2h to transcode and the CPU only works with 10% or less.

Here is my output from the Kerneldriver:

I dont know why it won't work and am really sad about it because this should be the main task from the Server.

Maybe I have to change some settings in the Mainboard but i changed everything. I wasted over 15 hours for nothing.

 

Please help me if you can!

gst-launch-1.0 is obsolete!

only ffmpeg

try it: offline transcode > online transcode

 

pull here sample video (h265) , I'll try it

Should I upload a sample video here? Or what do you mean? But transcode 2 hours is way too long for a 45 minute video or not?

Ok i figuered something out.

When the Server was started a few minutes ago i’m not able to start a offline transcoding from h265 or h264.

Online transcoding (viewing in Browser) works only with h264. H265 videos didn’t load.

When I put a h265 video in the transcoding queue it fails after few seconds.

After that I made a restart and then die H265 video in the queue started transcoding (really slow).

When the offline transcoding is running I’m able to start a online h265 transcoding (with massive lags).

Then I stopped the offline transcoding and the online transcoding and at this point I’m not longer able to restart one of the transcoding.

 

Here you can find some samples. https://x265.com/hevc-video-files/

Thanks for the help :)

 

Update: I waited until he transcoded a h265 video after a restart from the example site. At 100% it comes to an error. I don't know what to do :(

Mhh strange. What kind of motherboard / CPU do you have? And how is the putty command to see this overview? Can you say me the exact Version of your DSM? And thanks for the effort.

Ok it looks exactly like your htop overview. But my Diskwirte is significantly lower and so slow that you can buffer 10 sekunden for 2 seconds of video. And my problem is still that it only transcode when the Server ist fresh started with a transcoding task in the queue. Then I can start a stream and cancel the offline transcoding. When you stop transcoding (online or offline) you can't restart it. Only with a restart of the whole Server.

I think you can't help me but thanks for your help.

 

I hope the problem will be solved with a Loader update but i think i can wait a long time.😪
