    Video Encoding Server


    I have around 30 videos each say 1 GB in size.

    Need to convert them into other formats and download back into my computer.

    So I need server till I finish the conversion.

    How long does a 1 GB video conversion to example hevc take?

    And what server should I buy for few days and cheap?



    • Why don't you convert them on your PC?

      i did NAT

    • It will take weeks on mine.

    • I use OVH when I need something like that. Get a server for a week, should be plenty of time. EG-16 should be plenty fast.

    • Weekly server rentals or hourly. Install what you want and do what you need to do.

      How to clean up a questionable reputation: throw the kids some BF/CM offers.

    • using vapoursynth and hevc veryslow preset with some other parameters converts with about 5fps on the Xeon E3-1230 v2 (hosted at oneprovider in paris, 27euro/month). mine runs windows so i dont have to deal with compiling a patched x265 binary on linux.

    • FomatFactory is the best convert to mp4 avc ou hevc with two pass.

      Vultr's bare metal is at 60% off and is ideal for this. Compile FFMPEG with x265 and you are good to go.

    • try AWS's hourly-billed instance. Multi-core and high memory ram. It won't take too much time.

    • HEVC is pretty slow but you'd have to try on one or two of your 1GB videos to get a real idea. GTHost offered to help you with a temporary free dedi so I'd go with that. PUSHR_Victor mentions Vultr's hourly bare metal. That is probably overkill, but if the free credit promo is still on, it's hard to beat "free". Otherwise, use an hourly server from wherever, or several of them if you want to process the vids in parallel.

      Get 2 or 3 hourly high-end VPS and split workload like 15 or 10 videos on each, would save you much time and probably money too!

    • Thank you everyone got a vultr bare metal 100$ free server , will work for 20+ days.

      Look at the Ikoula server in ^ here ^ it has a GTX1070 to you can use CUDA and it will be done super fast compared to a CPU based encoder.

      Thanked by 1PUSHR_Victor

      Had enough of the scams on lowendbox, lowendtalk is now being infiltrated by corruption so I have chosen to make an low end exit #lexit for now - you can find me HERE

    • Lol $172/m and I guess the Hetzner EX51-SSD-GPU is gone for good. Damn shoecoins. I'm glad the Ikoula GPU server is still out there, but it's way overkill for a small encoding task like this.

      We have a 4 core, 4GB server that converts 5-6 videos an hour ( around 1.3-1.5 GB each) from HD to 360p, and creates a 30-second sample at the same time.

      All you need is a vps package with dedicated cpu and you'll be fine. Absolutely no GPU needed.

    • Video encoding speed depends a lot on the parameters you choose. "preset faster" versus "preset slower" can easily lead to up to 3x speed difference.

      If you don't care about high encoding efficiency (i.e. quality per bitrate), encoding on a GTX 1050 using nvenc might be more cost effective.

      Using a cloud computing / rented server is a very expensive solution unless you are paid to cover the cost. I used to encode about 1 TB of animes and I ended up using soyoustart E5-1650 since I was paid enough to cover that cost.

    • @devwhatsapp How well is the vultr dedi working on your videos? I notice the Hetzner GPU server is available again with limited stock. If you want one for long enough to make the setup fee worth it, get it now ;)
