<para>You can use this module to transcode a stream, ie to change its
codecs or the encoding bitrates. Some additional processing can be done
during this process, such as rescaling, deinterlacement, resampling,
<note><para>Depending on the bitrate of the original stream and of
the options chosen, transcoding can be a very CPU intensive task. As
a consequence, streaming of a real time transcoded stream can lead to
dropped frames or a jerky image and sound in some cases, when running
