I've actually just implemented this in my own setup but only as a frontend load balancer (still using Plex for transcoding). I can vouch that the methodology for off loading works amazingly! Very happy with it.

The problem I faced was not my servers inability to transcode but bandwidth issues/restrictions. The UnicornLB was a perfect fit.

Came across Unicorn while searching google.

Did this fail to gain traction?

It would be great to have some clustering ability for transcoding built into PG.

I believe the Unicorn guys are still very active in development. It requires replacing parts of Plex with a custom transcoder which comes with its own complications. They've done an outstanding job!
