I am confused how ffmpeg  allocate it's cpu resource when i am using ffmpeg
to transcoding, 

for example:
   how much resource to decode, and how much to encode

I have set the threads to 1 and do a experiment:
ffmpeg2.1 -i /home/mps/chd/out.avi -acodec pcm_s16le -ar 44100 -ac 2 
-vcodec libx264 -coder 1 -b:v 250k -x264opts
threads=1 -timelimit 6000 -r  15 -pass 1 -passlogfile
/home/mps/cmwu/passlog_1414744300_h264_1.log -f null -y /dev/null

I found the cpu load use is 140%, it's not 100%

Can anybody explain it for me ?
