I still have an issue with this patch, while it would be nice to have another HEVC encoder available in FFmpeg for comparisons and whatnot, I feel that turingcodec isn't a mature enough encoder compared to what is already in the project.

Not to mention that development seems to have stalled (with only very minor fixes for several months). In FFmpeg it is very difficult to remove 'features', so if this patch were to be merged and then turingcodec to actually go stale we'd be left with dead code for longer than is ideal (forever).

My opinion is that you should just maintain this separately as an out-of-tree patch as it doesn't benefit us.
