    Peter, I looked on Reddit for some help on my hardware roadmap and someone with a lot more knowledge on video encoding mentioned that libvpx has been updated to support 8 threads instead of just 4 when encoding to VP9. Is this something that can be updated by getting a newer version of FFMPEG?

    Yes getting a newer version of ffmpeg could help but this may also break transcoding in Mezzmo if the commandline parameters to ffmpeg have changed. You can get a newer ffmpeg version from and then change the path in Transcoding settings to the path to the new ffmpeg to see if it works.

    I've completed a couple of my AMD hardware upgrades to Ryzen 3000 CPUs. Here's some comparisons using FFMPEG doing 24 mbps H264 encoding.

    27 fps - AMD FX-8350 1080P H.264
    48 fps - Intel i7-4790k 1080P H.264
    123 fps - Ryzen 1800X 1080P H.264
    354 fps - Intel i7-4790K 1080P H.264 w/Nvidia 970 GPU
