If you run a server OS most likely the computer have a processor that do not have a graphics processor. Netcam Studio will gain a lot in performance if a graphics card is added to the system and Netcam Studio is configured for hardware acceleration. It do not need to be a top of the line graphics card, but the cumbersome decoding calculations are off-loaded to the graphics card.
