Seedbox - DIY cheap ARM server or commercial?

jeromezajeromeza Member

Any cheap offerings about? I see Scaleway and SyS ARM options aren't available anymore?

    Try seedboxws, minimim is 2 Euro per month for 100 GB Seedbox and plex play is like 0.5 Euro/month extra (no transcoding, just direct play on Plex). Can use private/public trackers but public trackers stop seeding after downloading to seedbox.

    I wrote review about it at https://www.reddit.com/r/seedboxes/comments/eutvjf/small_seedboxws_review/

    I am currently also using a Time4VPS storage VPS as seedbox/plex, 1 TB storage box, with 1 gb bandwith upgrade and use promo code 2021 at checkout

    https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/171802/time4vps-reliable-affordable-pricing-quality-instant-setup-50-off-on-new-orders

    I paid 36 Euro for the whole year upfront, I am from USA so no VAT for me. Comes to around 3 Euro/month for me.

    But no public trackers, only private trackers else they will suspend your account. And, if 100% CPU utilization they will reduce CPU power for you.

    2 euros per 100gb? Plus paid Plex?

    Hell no

    hm. I've lost a machine.. literally lost. it responds to ping, it works completely, I just can't figure out where in my apartment it is.

    If one were to use a proxy, even public trackers shouldn't be an issue, right?

    Okay I have this one too but Plex seems to be an issue on 1gbps port Storage box, it keeps buffering, I have had set up for Direct play and no transcoding. Do I need to care about something?

    I do CDN peering via cloudflare so it maxes out my connection. I will post link for the guide I followed later cause it is deleted now, but it is similar to https://quickbox.io/knowledge-base/setting-up-cloudflare-and-plex-cdn/

    I use free plan on cloudflare, only cost is domain, any domain works, but I think there was like problem in like free domains like .tk , .ml, etc. Freenom free domains. I forgot the exact problem but I think it was something with SSL certification generation step.

    I don't know how to setup proxy on VPS server so I never tried it. But like if you can avoid any content infringement notice coming to Time4VPS, they don't care what torrenting you do. If you need private trackers let me know I can send you invites for IPT torrents, the owner is scumbag and like did shady things like did members or cancel random membership so like people have to pay/donate to resume membership. And some other trackers I can send you invites like TorrentLeech (they have often open registration periods)

    What kind of content are you watching and where are you streaming from? How many users are using your Plex?

    4K content will only take up 50-100 mbps. 1080p content will take around 10-20 mbps. It shouldn't be maxing out the port. It should be fine if you're using the direct play feature and live near the VPS.

    My location is far from vps center, I stream 720p mostly as 1080p even on proper Plex server (From reputed seedbox provider) with transcoding gives me buffering, I don't know What I need to fix to get bufferless streaming

    What CPU are they using? How many cores? I assume the CPU is bottle necking the transcoding.

    I choose Direct play, I am using Container vps 80gb hdd with 1gbps port bandwidth. I am not doing transcoding. Still have to suffer buffering.

    The HDD might be too slow, especially if it's shared.

    Yes all resources are shared on time4vps even like yours storage box should be.
