Distributed video conversion

Hello everybody!

Guys, I'm facing an architectural problem here and I need some of your tips. :-)

First of all, I have a DB that stores videos and I have to convert all of them (I'm using the FFMpeg, by the way).

The problem is due to its high CPU usage, because my PC is already running an application server (JBoss).

As I don't want this converter decreasing my JBoss performace, I'm thinking to put it in another server.

So, what do you recommend?

Should I use a Message Driven Bean running in a separate server? (How could I access the video files that are stored in the main server?)

Thank you very much! ;-)

I agree. Here's the link:
