Bastard is used in a negative context here :) A snippit of a top
command reveals:

PID USER     PRI  NI  SIZE  RSS SHARE STAT %CPU %MEM   TIME COMMAND
3246 root      15   0  2436 2436  1280 S    10.5  3.9   0:14 ices

<p>I am re encoding using:

                <encode>
                       <nominal-bitrate>8000</nominal-bitrate>
                       <samplerate>11025</samplerate>
                       <channels>1</channels>
                <quality>-1</quality>
                </encode>

Seems like its chewing up a lot a cpu cycles or is this by design?
