Decrease Processing Time

What server resource would decrease processing time for videos?

For example, I can increase the RAM or upgrade to a better CPU. Is there a single server resource that would decrease processing time for videos?

  • Yes, CPU and RAM play a huge part in video encoding. Increasing thise will reduce the time by a noticible amount. However please keep in mind that the larger and longer the video, the longer it takes to encode.
  • ffmpeg is very CPU heavy. The more cores you can get - and faster cores at that - the lesser your processing time will be. I had this one video that would take about 45 minutes on an older Dell 2950 (two quad-cores @ -> 16 cores to OS with HT) and only takes 11 minutes on a newer Dell M420 (one ten-core -> 20 cores to OS with HT)
