Please do not apply (yet)!

What is the license of the library that implements this symbol?
Imo, it is not ok to simply circumvent a license issue by dynamic
loading the library. If it were that simple, it would indicate that
our software license can be circumvented just as easily but we were
quite strict (and successful) about this as long as we were able to
pursue license violators.
Note that we haven't allowed this for libfaac.
What are the steps to install this encoder library? Is it part of the
Nvidia binary video driver that I use for VDPAU on Linux? Is it part
of every Nvidia graphics driver on Windows?
