We need Hap encoded videos to use them with a video compositing / VJing
software on MacOS, Modul8 (http://www.modul8.ch/). When using lots of
video sources in parallel, the SSD optimizations really pay off and we
are able to process much more content smoothly at once. There are
transcoders for MacOS, so i don't critically depend on having it
available. But since I do not own any Apple system myself it would be
great if I could do the video encoding on Linux.

Regarding developing this myself, I would be really interested, however
I have a pretty tight time schedule at the moment due to my master's
