given this CPU:
4 cores / Intel® Core™ i7-3615QM CPU @ 2.30GHz
what would you guys expect for transcoding performance? i see that ffmpeg is called with -c:v h264_videotoolbox, which is guess is why the Settings page says “hardware” transcoder. however i find that the machine can only transcode 1080p/30 to 360p in real time. that seems slow. could this have to do with the fact that the machine is running 10.9.5?
edit: seems like h264_videotoolbox might be using the GPU? the machine is a mac mini so the graphics card is the integrated Intel HD 4000. could it actually be slower than pure software on this cpu?
