Priority setting for transcode jobs

Hi,

I have a VM running handbrake and can't connect to it e.g. via VNC ore TeamViewer because handbrake uses 100% CPU (permanent load of 11 @8cores).
I'm using Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS.
It would be nice to set the transcoding tasks to a lower priority to get the OS responding.

Kind regards, Tolotos
