On this page I will be outlining one possible distributed processing model for Transcode.

Design targets for this model will be ease of implementation and efficiency (N machines should be able to do the basic task of decoding/encoding in something approaching t/N time).

The component strategies are of two types:

  1. distributed decoding/encoding of video/audio streams (one machine decodes, another encodes).
  2. distributed transcoding of chunks of video stream (each slave machine processen t/N seconds of video).

MPI/PVM are not components of the proposed methods.

Gigabit ethernet connectivity between the machines will be assumed.

Stay tuned.
