[FFmpeg-user] Can heavy load on a machine affect FFmpeg output quality?

Hello guys,

We are running a transcoding server on top of FFmpeg, where in principle
the machine can get quite
busy in more than 1 concurrent job is submitted.

Is it possible that a machine under heavy load might affect the goodness of
FFmpeg transcoding output?
In other terms, is a video transcoding a function of the load of a machine
at a give time?

We have given ffmpeg max priority with “nice -20”, if that matters.
Thanks for you patience!
