Create an element with the caps as in a software encoder; rip out the
library call and replace it by copying the buffer to your hardware
driver after you've done your buffer alignment if required by your
hardware; the resulting encoded data is handled the same and sent out.
I don't see a real difference between a hardware and software encoder;
they both end up making a call to somewhere else (hardware or software
This is clearly another case of too many mad scientists, and not enough
