Plex and hardware acceleration: pure awesomeness
I have a dedicated server from Hetzner Auctions that I use with Plex and other things. I discovered that I could easily enable the integrated GPU in the i7700 CPU (I only had to enable a couple of kernel modules and install an Intel driver for QuickSync) in order to enable hardware acceleration in Plex. Now I can stream in full quality 4K with almost no CPU usage
I had to buy the Plex Pass for 119e though (lifetime license) to be able to use hardware acceleration. I got hardware acceleration working for free with Jellyfin too but with Jellyfin some formats wouldn't play and I had to use Tdarr to transcode videos in a better format, which takes time. With Plex I don't need any of this so it was worth the payment.
Does anyone here use hardware acceleration in Plex?
