Made the change and so far so good, CPU is back where it should be. Running
2 streams at 56K 22Hz is using about 5% CPU total - most respectable I
I have only been running this config for about 10 minutes, but so far so
good. Will post follow up tomorrow.
Thanks Jack - question tho: isn't using console mode 3 the same as using -b
(from the description in the conf file anyway) or it is the same but icecast
treat it differently at runtime.
