Sure, doing A does not mean you cannot do B anymore. This is just an
offer to give you one more option. Adding it is almost trivial and
but it's your decision whether this gives you any benefit. OpenHEVC sure
did great work and the implementation is rather similar as I can see.

Anyways, you may want to cherry-pick the h265 raw format testing code
for libavformat, which is non-existent in the OpenHEVC code so far.
