What determines the speed of conversion of local recordings. I regularly record and convert meetings on 5-7 computers at a time. I have various computers with various specs, but it seems like higher spec doesnt always convert faster. Which computer specs and settings determine the speed of the local recording conversion? For example I have a 5 year old dual core Lenovo thinkpad with 16 gb ram and 7th generation i5 which processes faster then an 11th gen i7 with 32 gb ram?
Trying to figure this out as I buy machines specifically for this purpose
Hey @VadimK, when converting the local recording are the two meetings that are being converted the exact same in terms of length of the meeting, shared content during the meeting, quality (HD), etc.?
I'm unaware of the specs required of the converting process for local recordings however, as long as your system meets our requirements to run Zoom I don't think the speed of the converting process should differ much. Did you notice a huge difference in the time of the converting process of your local recording?
Assuming its based of the number of processes your computer is running whether it be applications open in the background or not which would determine the conversion process time (I think). You can monitor the consumption of Zoom for your CPU in Task Manager. Also, the possibility of the length of your meeting -- which usually is double the time to processing.
I can do some more digging to find you a more accurate answer!
Check the Task Manager for which resource is in use the most while you transcode. I suspect the CPU but maybe it's GPU. And I also suspect that there are one or two single thread processss doing the processing, so it doesn't matter how many cores the CPU has, what matters is how fast is one core. That you can verify from Passmark's website by looking single thread score.
