Feature request: "Poor mans distributed transcoding"

I propose a simple wrapper around ffmpeg to let users pre-transcode. Let’s save a server today!

Can someone point me to the exact transcoding options needed, I volunteer coding the Mac OS version.

There is an open issue on the github tracker, for not re-encoding video that are in the good format.
I haven’t the exact link, but you can search here: https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/issues
