Media SDK Vs Media Server Studio on Windows Server 2012
I'm currently using Media SDK 188.8.131.521 (software processing) to transcode 24 streams to H264 on a Windows Server 2012 machine using a Xeon E5-2667 v3. I'm finding that performance is great for ~ 20 hours & the CPU usage is quite low (~30%) & then something changes and the encoder suddenly starts doing a lot more processing and the CPU jumps up to ~95%. Are there any known issues with the H264 encoder after it's been running for a while? I just discovered that Media SDK isn't supported for Windows Server 2012 and using Media Server Studio is advised. Could this be related?
