Good dive into content creation/encoding/software/hardware limits and the "whys".

I don't do "content creation" just encoding MPGs to x264.MP4s.
But this was fascinating about the "why" when running into scrubbing slowly or why only 12 cores used with X264 and so much more.

Just to play 4k HEVC, "software decoding" took 12 of 16 xeon cores and then there is the
MPG is less then x264 as is less then HEVC as is less then (V1?).

Going to have to watch this more then once to let it soak in a little at a time...

How many CORES do you REALLY NEED for...
