This patch adds support for encoding with Nvidia NVENC on Windows and Linux.

I'm not sure if this needs to be flagged as nonfree. As far as I'm 
aware, it should not affect how the resulting binaries can be redistributed.

The only dependency this has is the nvEncodeAPI.h from the NVENC SDK, 
which can be downloaded from Nvidia:


The header is somewhat hidden in the Samples directory.

I attached the current version of the patch.
It can also be found on my github fork:
