    Hi

    I am wondering if it is possible to use a Mac Mini to run compressor as part of the Q Master network. Does anyone have a clue? I am thinking of a Mini because of its size.

    Thanks!

    Great! Thanks for the tip. Do you think 1GB RAM is sufficient or should I up to 2?

    According to this discussion thread ( not completely related ), memory use can be very high if you use "Virtual Clustering", which apprently is the only way to make H.264 compressing faster.

    Good luck!
