I suggest the ROCKPro64 for that. But even 2 users will be a strain with certain types of transcoding.

If you don't need transcoding, even the base model Rock64 will work fine.  Just transcode your files to a compatible format ahead of time and let it stream those.

Currently run a plex media server on a 1gb raspberry pi 3b+. I have this Rock64 4gb on order, thinking it would outperform what I already have, but after reading these forums, I am now wondering what their return policy is like :-)

Hopefully, I will be happily surprised, yet.

I have a Rock64 running Plex. It struggles with transcoding, but works great as a Plex server. I'm waiting for my RockPro64 to arrive, as I plan to move that into my Plex server and hoping it can do some transcoding, not that I really need it.

Overall though, the Rock64 is wayyyyy better than the RPi. I have several, and trying to phase them out and replace them with the Rock and RockPro... just overall a more advamced product.

I use my Rock64 for web hosting and reverse proxy server to some other RPis.

As of yesterday, I now have a freshly redone Armbian Stretch Desktop running Plex Media Server, Radarr, Sichchill and NZBGet. This time around I used armbian-config to install Plex and Radarr and install the rest myself.

It is working very well. Imaged it up for safe keeping, but I am very curious as to how much better a 4gb RockPro64 would be. Love to trade it in. Smile

Please post your findings.

As soon as I get it and am able to play with it, I'll try to post back. I guess mine got stuck in customs/is lost. There's been no status updates since Feb 1st.
