Tdarr running on Zimaboard using Synology files

I would like to transcode using Tdarr, however doing this on a RS1221+ with no GPU takes forever. Wondering if anyone has used a zimaboard to have Tdarr transcode media files that reside on a Synology home ?

My thought is to install Tdarr on Zimaboard, fstab to synology share as well as a transcode folder ?

Or is there a way to just use the Zimaboard as a Tdarr node running Tdarr on Synology and point it to the Zimaboard GPU?

I have Tdarr running (server & node) on a Beelink U59 (mini) with Win 10.
Which watches a fold on my NAS (DS923+) and after transcoding moves the file to my DVR. I found it easier to setup this way, rather than setting up the server on the NAS, and then setting up a node on another unit… All I can say is that it works for me…

I end up getting this to work on the Zimaboard and it works great. I installed Portainer on CasaOS, then install tdarr on portainer.

In portainer - Stacks, then + Add stack
name is tdarr

In Tdarr under Libraries remove CPU&FFMPEG, go to community filter and add in FFMPEG VAAPI HEVC Transcode

I’m glad you got it to work…
I had an issue with Stacks, and ended up using Flow.
