Is there a way to adjust FFMPEG preset value?

Hi, I'm streaming h.264 to my PS3, and the picture looks great. However, for certain things (like scrolling credits), the bitrate skyrockets and my network can't keep up. (By "skyrocket", I mean that it jumps from an average of 5 Mbps to 65 Mbps). By comparison, Plex's DLNA server uses about 3 Mbps for the same video.

I was thinking that since my CPU is underutilized, it might be helpful to adjust FFMPEG's `preset` setting to something that compresses slower but better. Is there a way to adjust UMS' FFMPEG values?

Thanks!
