Do I need to queue videos to be converted by ffmpeg on my website?

Last Modified: 2013-12-14
I'm creating test video hosting website. If I'm using a shared hosting with supplies me with ffmpeg, do I have to worry about queuing video conversions before they go into ffmpeg? Or is everything multithreaded? And if there's a lot of conversion going on, will this make the web server slower to respond to GETs and POSTs?
