linking 2 or more pi's for more speed from plexpi - try#5 - 08-20-2018

Has anyone tried to run more than 1 pi linked together for a bit more speed? I have seen and read articles on it but not specifically plexpi. I ask because I have a spare pi that is sitting in the closet. Hope someone can help.

I’ve considered and pondered the same, but I believe the Pis cannot be combined for computational power, at least not for transcoding and other tasks Plex accomplishes.
