Question about the remote engine

May 18, 2013 at 5:49 AM
So what is this exactly.

I was hoping it was where I could use the resources of idle computers in my network to help speed up the process. If this is the case how is it suppose to be set up. do I enter the the main system's IP in the idle computers?
Because in theory if I had 4 or 5 systems going this would be nice power.

and if this is not the case maybe a future upgrade?

Thanks

Would love to - it would definitely take more time and resources that I have at my disposal to implement this natively.

The only way to do this right now is have MCEBuddy engine running on different computers, have them all point to a common directory where the file are lying on the network. Create custom conversion tasks and monitor tasks on each engine so taht they don't end up processing the same files (filter by name or directory etc)
