Hello,

I have the following problem :

When converting a video file from mpg to mp4 with ffmpeg I want do some other work like internet or watch videos which also uses a lot of resources. Watching videos is way too slow even with 1.2 GHz. Is it possible to set ffmpeg to use minimum resources so I get it working and have not to wait till converting is finished (takes some hours)?

Thanks
