Hello. I'm going to build a new server for Wowza Streaming Engine 4.0.5 and I'd be happy to utilize Intel Quick Sync technology for transcoding. So I have following questions by now:
1. What kind of CPU will I need? Is it true that the only "Intel Xeon Processor E3-1285 v3 with Intel HD Graphics P4700" on C226 chipset is supported?
2. Do I have to pay additional fees to Intel for their Media SDK for Linux servers?
3. Can I transcode with Quick Sync on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS?
4. Is there any Intel multi CPU chipset that supports Quick Sync?
Thanks in advance.
