Could well be I don’t understand this correctly but:
I just watched a video on the Youtube channel Byte My Bits https://youtu.be/bQLgbc9NFdU titled “UNLOCK NVIDIA Cards for More Plex Transcoding!”, which removes the limit of 2 sessions for consumer Nividia graphics cards with a patch https://github.com/keylase/nvidia-patch for Linux (tested on Ubuntu).
Jason of Byte My Bits claims to have installed it for Plex and transcoded 12 streams.
Can this be real, or am I misunderstanding what is going on here?
if true (which is kinda irrelevant) i wanna know why the hell there is a 2 session limit to begin with. most home users aren’t going to shell out for a professional level card or settle for a lesser performing card. nvidia really does seem to have the middle finger up towards the consumer
Sadly AMD isn’t really competitive on the high end either so I can’t even say just use them. sigh
I thought this was a well known thing? It’s juat software?
I believe this is not that. Multi user and multiple different encoding streams are different I think.
This is more of nvidia limiting consumer features so businesses will buy quadro cards with the features unlocked for these workloads.
well, if multiple encodes is a thing, they are?
i think that depends on how many encodes you can get versus the cost of the card
