Emby has hw transcoding on exynos ARM devices?!

I've just noticed that Emby supports hardware transcoding for h.264 on some of the exynos5422 ARM single board computers made by Odroid.

Emby Link

Any change to incorporate those changes into Plex as well?

That would make for a sweet entry-level server is low power consumption...

While it is good that Emby has hardware transcoding on this and most of the other devices just as Plex does. (Notable exception is the Shield where Emby's server does not work at all well, yet.) Emby's hardware transcoding has a bug that Plex fixed some time ago namely for some anamorphic content the Emby implementation fails to properly stretch the video back to full screen.

Plex has problems and is missing some features and Emby has problems and is missing some features so the choice comes down to, in many cases, which set of irritations does each person find the least irritating.
