GPU Transcoding with the Community Grants Node

The community grants node migrated over to GPU transcoding over the holidays. As a result, the performance dramatically increased.

We have outlined the exact steps we took to share with the community.

Is this for Nvidia cards only or are AMD supported as well…?

I have only set up Nvidia cards here. While AMD cards can work with Livepeer, they typically perform worse than Nvidia, so we have not done the work to integrate AMD drivers into the Livepeer node. We are open to help anyone who want to contribute in an open source way to enable AMD.
