I wish I had time to implement bindings to
https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-codec-libraries (nvcuvenc).  There
 "may" be libraries for nvcuvenc for linux, I haven't looked into it
too much, but
 every so often people that do live streaming using ffmpeg "wish" they
 could use their graphics card for encoding, to save on cpu, so it might
 be interesting.
