Plex transcode with ryzen


Recommended Posts

So I just found out... I know I’m perhaps behind times... you can use AMDs Ryzen chips with built in APU for transcoding with Plex. Fully supported de and encoding, does this work via plex in synology? Posts I’ve read else are on windows machines, unraid boxes etc.

as this usually need (linux) drivers and synology only provides stuff for intel (they dont use amd at all) i'd say no

the trancoding stuff work through the i915 drivers in the 918+ image and  my guess would be that this drivers dont work with ryzen apu's

but you can search the forum for this (and learn about using transcoding in in dsm as it is kind of special)

if you already have the hardware you might be better off with open media vault as nas software, it a normal open linux and not a (closed source) appliance like dsm
