Default dual processor video decoding

I am building a computer that will mainly be focusing on mass mpeg 2 decoding. I know the most powerful form of doing this encoding/decoding is by the cpu. I would like to build a dual processor system, but am not sure if the the Operating System will know how to delegate this load between cpu's. I know that some programs, i.e., xmpeg, flask mpeg, have multi threaded software to deal with this. If i have a dual processor system with out multi threaded software will this i still be able to use both processors?? Thanks for your input
