    [font=verdana,geneva,sans-serif]That would be techy cool. I don't do enough transcoding to use it, but it would be cool to see anyway.[/font]

    If at first you don't succeed, do it like your mother told you.

    the transcode farming idea is great and something I have been thinking about as well. With many households moving to 2 or more laptops rather than a dedicated "family PC", there is lot of compute power going to waste. What a great way to harness that!

    I've been thinking about it and it is doable. What I have in mind wouldn't be like 3D render-farming where a single job would be handled across multiple machines. This would be limited to each machine transcoding a single job and the server being the management controller. I also think I would have video files transferred over the apps own communication link instead of using file shares. It's more coding but simpler to to configure and you don't have to worry about share permissions.

    I'm not going to get to this too soon, I'm currently working on a significant update to Poca for WHS v.1 and creating a general server version that will be compatible with 2011 or any windows server.
