Indeed, if this is for use on your local network you should be OK.
But most residential internet accounts have glacial outbound speeds, measured in bits per fortnight. If you plan to export
video to the outside world you may need to upgrade to a business class account and pay for reasonable upstream bandwidth.
Transcoding is a way to reduce the amount of data you need to export.
Running a server of any sort often violates the TOS for residential accounts, just something to be aware of.
