  1. Can I use more than 1 computer to transcode a video file using ffmpeg at the same time? or is there any free software on ubuntu that allows such a thing? i have ubuntu 18.04 32 bit running on my laptop.

    So if i get another laptop (say running the same ubuntu version) would such a thing be possible?

    Thank You

  3. Haven't tried it, but first thing google throws at me when searching for "distributed encoding ffmpeg" is https://github.com/nergdron/dve and there are other results which look like they might do what you want.
    -> did you try any of them?

    According to that github link, you'll need 3 computers to approximately halve the encoding time. You'll need to decide whether all this is worth it.
