When you copy (encoding) your videos to the Windows Home Server, (on HP’s Media Smart Server), the system will try to CONVERT the video to HQ (high quality) and MQ (mobile quality) versions. You can turn the “HPVideo Converter” off in the settings, to stop the system from automatically convert these videos.

However, the video upload will STILL be very slow. You will need to do the following;

– Download and install “Advance Admin Console” ad-in
– Access the ad-in (top-row icon)
– pick Administrative Tools
– Pick “Services” (local)

– Scroll down and find” HP Transcoding Service”
– Right Mouse Click and stop the service (you can go to Properties to do more)

Now you are back in business for speedy encoding of all you DVD or movies…
