Thank you, I was unaware of that.

I think it would be helpful to be able to pass any option directly to 
the encoding library, allowing for all functions of that library to be 
taken advantage of.

If it is already implemented in FFmpeg for x264 perhaps it wouldn't be 
very difficult to allow commands to be passed to any library?
