Plex server

 Share

Go to solution Solved by DrMacintosh,

The laptop probably has more than enough power to encode on the fly. I have a Raspberry Pi 4 as my Plex server just hosting direct play streams and it does not break a sweat. 

Hey guys, so currently running my Plex server on my current rig. Recently got a more powerful laptop and now have a perfectly useable reasonably modern laptop sitting around. Could I take the increased efficiency of the laptop and then let my desktop be able to be turned off when not in use? Would be wired on "gigabit" connection and would probably be doing at most 2x 720p streams and 1 1080p.

Sweet, then it's just a matter of migrating everything over and having the laptop be the target for the server.
