Thank you for the useful explanation! > At the same time for many real-time applications a software encoder is not an > option. > So these developers will appreciate default support for both GPUs. But if all above only applies to developers (and not to users) I still believe it is not necessary to add the header, simply because every developer will manage to download a header from your github page.

I can only state that the more often you repeat it, the stronger I feel urged to request a code cleanup including documentation for the header before it gets added.
