Linode GPU instances

Do the Linode GPU instances support hardware-accelerated video encoding? I'm mainly interested in H.264 and VP9 but any popular web browser compatible video codec would be useful.

Linode GPU instances can be used for hardware-accelerated video encoding. FFMPEG is an example of an open-source multimedia manipulation tool that you can use for video encoding. Their documentation will explain how to accelerate video encoding, decoding and end-to-end transcoding, and specifically mentions the application of the H.264 codec.

Thank you both for the links. I'll make sure to check them out.
