Well, when not using any transcoding module, input and output use the
same codec. That means that, for instance, your input is a MPEG2 stream
with a bitrate of 5 Mbit/s, you output will be the same. The stream is
only remultiplexed so that it can be transmitted over a network.
When using a transcoding module, input and output can have different
codecs and/or bitrates. That means that your input can be the same 5
Mbit/s MPEG2 stream, but your output a 1 Mbit/s MPEG4 stream.
Transcoding, however, requires a lot of CPU power...
