Transcoding options


Recommended Posts

As I know it is not possible to transcode videos in Xpenology as VM on ESXI. For now I have Xpenology 918 as VM to manage shr pool, downloads, audio station, etc, but I am thinking how to transcode videos by DLNA. Its good that I can play videos by build in dsm media center but I have a lot of videos that my tvs can not play. I can not get Plex spk and Jellifyn in Docker to work. What are Your suggestions to have a multimedia server that can transcode not supported videos from Xpenology and be able to play videos with srt files? Maybe some unix distro like Ubuntu VM + Docker + Jellyfin?

i dont know if its confirmed that intel QSV does not work in a dsm vm on esxi but what should work (if you have vt-d with your cpu/chipset) is having a nvidia/amd gpu (pcie) and giving this gpu to a different linux vm (maybe with added docker) and use that for transcoding
