Not possible. Hardware MPEG-2 encoders are designed to encode data
from on-board analog inputs only. What you're asking involves MPEG-2
decoding as well.

Not really. ffmpeg isn't designed for symmetrical processing, so it
will only use a single core. However, this will benefit you if you
this box for multiple things (front-end as well as transcoding,
etc.). You'll see a benefit there, as the other core will be free to
do your bidding.
