# Convert from H264 to H265

# Bonus: it can take a second to play (no more than H264) so here's how to generate

Firefly-III Ubuntu 20.04 Proxmox Installation Guide
View fireflyguide.md

This is a summarized guide I created while installing Firefly-III in a Proxmox (6.2-15) container running Ubuntu 20.04.

I followed this tutorial. It has a link to this other tutorial for installing mariaDB. Furthermore, the official Firefly-iii documentation is Here

This guide has everything I did in one concise summary. Not much is explained. This will take about 1.5 hrs.

Note: I initially followed the official instructions and used a LAMP stack. I had issues with apache and getting the webserver to work (likely because I am not familiar with apache and am more comfortable with nginx).

To begin, first read through the two tutorials and official documentation so that you hav an idea of whats going on

Change the I/O Scheduler

Open $ vim /etc/default/grub then add elevator=noop next to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT. Run $ update-grub and $ cat /sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler to be sure that noop is being used:

$ vim /etc/default/grub
$ update-grub
$ cat /sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler
