Best profile for performance


I would like to know what is the best performance transconding profile I can find.
I have a slow PC, i3...so it kinda freeezes the stremming during transcoding, and I need subtitles, so I expect to need the transcoding right? Also a profile set? Am i correct?

Im transcoding to a DLNA receptor that its kind of old one too.

Re: Best profile for performance

What would most likely work best for you would be to convert your video into a format that your player can handle without transcoding. For most players that would likely be MP4. Then your computer won't have to transcode. Adding captions can be done via transmuxing, which requires very little computer power. So it really depends on what sort of player you are trying to use.

Primary server: Intel i5-6400, 8 gig ram, Windows 10 Pro, 18 TB hard drive space | Test server Windows 10 Pro, AMD Phenom II X4 965, 8 gig ram
