Nvidia Hardware Transcoding Not Working
First post here and I'm new to Plex so please go easy on me.
I have a HP Microserver Gen8, Specs Below:
Intel Xeon E3-1220L
Nvidia GeForce GT 1030
250GB SSD for Windows Server 2016 Standard and Plex Media Server
4x 4TB WD Red's in RAID 10 (8TB Usable Space).
Plex and all it's metadata is stored on the SSD (NTFS).
All Library data is stored on the WD Red's (ReFS).
Most of my library are Blu-ray rips from my Blu-ray collection, Transcoded in HandBrake usually taking up 8GB-15GB and nothing really exceeding 10Mbps Original Quality.
Playback is smooth but the little Xeon is usually around 90-100% usage on one stream.
So I was hoping if I enabled Hardware Acceleration it would use the 1030 and thus allow more than one stream at a time.
Problem is, it never seems to touch the GPU, Xeon is still maxing out and I can see no GPU usage at all.
Is there a way to force Plex to see the GPU? I completely wiped and re-built my server last night (latest firmware's and Drivers across the board) And I've got Plex Pass so made sure I have the latest build of Plex installed as well.
Thanks in advanced.
