 Hi all,

I've been playing around with incoding/recoding with mencoder.
On one of my boxes mencoder keeps having niceness 20.
I don't want mencoder to play nice so I try to renice the process, but
it resets to 20 within seconds!
Here's the info:

[stark at yoshi ~]$ mencoder -show-profile x264ac3
MEncoder SVN-r31746-snapshot-4.2.1 (C) 2000-2010 MPlayer Team
Profile x264ac3: x264 with ac3 audio

Any thoughts?
