For encoding, yes, I don't need to worry copying from host to device.
For decoding, part of. In official example, they use av_hwframe_transfer_data
to copy from device memory to host, but nothing tricky. (in hw_decode.c
The problem I have is how to do this: decode in gpu -> do some process for
frames in gpu -> encode in gpu, only copy to device at start and copy from
in the end. There's no example to wrap raw device pointer to a hardware
