    * How can I permanently limit ffmpeg CPU usage?

    I have multiple video conversion scripts running on CentOS server and ffmpeg uses way too much resources.

    Does anybody know how can I limit ffmpeg CPU usage to 30%?

    I tried with cpulimit, but it only works with 1 process and it doesn't work on ffmpeg execution.

    I hope some Linux guru can help me with this

    Look at /etc/security/limits.conf as that should help you out a bit with what you want to do. It's fairly well documented so shouldn't give you any trouble.
