Sounds about good. It just depends where they are located, how big your files are, and how much bandwidth you have available.

My server is i7 4790 with 32Gb of RAM. I have about 10 people using it now with a fiber connection of about 970mb up and down. I do not do 4K but with 1080p I have not had any issues. I have had a max of 5 transcodes going at once without any problems.

I have two different versions of all TV shows. One for me and one for users to stream. I like 5.1 or 7.1 sound and that always forces a transcode. With TV shows I usually do not see transcoding going on because of the different versions but movies I have not automated and conversion format yet so I do see those transcoding.

The biggest issues I see is with the players and users not understanding how they can control the settings on their end. Educate them and don't use Xbox One as a streamer, POS. Waiting for the new shield to come out and then thats gone.

At the moment they have the 4770, the 6700 and the 8700, and an amd ryzen 7 1700x but I think the ryzen is overpowered, so I think the 6700?
