We want to transcode as many 3Mbit incoming RTMP streams as possible. Outgoing streams are sent via RTMP stream targeting (about 2 stream targets per transcoder). So no VOD, no DVR, no RTSP, few/no clients, no UDP etc.
I am experiencing stuttered video earlier than I had hoped (if I go beyond 1 stream for every 2 cores, I begin to see stuttering artifacts).
Many of the settings (particularly threads) seem to be relating to serving buffered content. Would it benefit a transcoding machine to reduce these settings, turn off system capabilities, or ? And if so, what are some ways to do this?
