I'd say firstly you'd have to learn to use/program with CUDA, then next
you'd have to find out how you call CUDA-functions from normal C
programs (the examples only show it the other way round, but that does
not seem like a feasible way to me for FFmpeg), and lastly you'd have to
find a place in FFmpeg that has enough data to process in one go to make
this efficient. Here probably the xvmc support is a good starting point,
everything beyond will probably require a few "architectural"
