I'm looking for a (preferably hardware) solution for quickly compressing ffmpeg H264 .mov files.
The setup I have has several Edgertronic cameras that are controlled through an API (start, stop, download video, unfortunately NOT streaming capable). My goal is to find a solution to quickly compress these video files on a linux machine before I upload them to cloud storage. Specifically, I'm looking for a PCI card that will assist with this form of compression.
I've looked around and talked to a few vendors, but as a software engineer with little to no video experience, I don't really know where I could find something like this.
Does anyone have any recommendations on hardware, or even a suggestion that alters the current pipeline I described to accomplish this?
