[FFmpeg-user] Best CPU for ffmpeg

I'm just getting familiar with ffmpeg and I am looking for CPU
recommendations.  I'm looking at building a machine with Fedora that will
primarily be used for HD video encodings.

Does ffmpeg automatically use multiple cores?  Is that a compile config
option?  How do I see if my RPM was compiled with that option?

Similarly, what about a machine with multiple physical CPU's?  Same
questions as the core questions.

Finally, does anyone have experience with XEON vs i7 for ffmpeg?
