For ease of use, we chose Ubuntu Linux as our OS for the encoder. Most Linux distributions would do, particularly Debian or Gentoo. Since the software used is crossplatform, it should also be possible to run the encoder on Windows (not recommended for stability and security) and OSX. In this HowTo, I will only show the setup for Linux, compiling from sources where possible. A graphical interface is not necessary for the encoder, since all configuration can be done either through ssh or the Web GUI, but it makes the installation process much easier.
