The simple answer:
        It does.

The slightly longer answer:
        Icecast uses one thread per source plus some auxiliary threads.
        You much more likely run out of network connection than CPU
        Distributing threads to CPUs and their cores is in the domain of
        the operating system.

Note to the list:
        Icecast's threading model is irrelevant for most stations, that
        is stations with less than, let's say, 10k concurrent listeners.
        If you have more listeners you should seek the help of a
        professional anyway.

With best regards,
