Bitrate scaling (we generally refer to it as bitrate 'peeling') is not
implemented in any production-level tools. That'll be a few months yet.

ices2 works efficiently and very reliably for both live, reencoded, and
static streams. If you want to try 'off-line' peeling (and then streaming
the peeled files later), you can try segher's experimental peeler (if you
can't find it without help, you probably shouldn't be using it - it's far
from finished :-)
