I can't judge the algorithms or the development direction and stuff -
I'm sure it's all state of the art. But the API sure gives me
goosebumps, and I don't mean the sexy feelgood type.

Sure, it has all the flexibility, but also almost all the disadvantages
of calling an external program. This makes it look so much like a proof
of concept.

But I'm sure that's not the point. If it turns out to be here to stay,
to compete with x265 in one or the other way, it's probably worth

Back to the review: From first glance, the libturing codec/library (or
the executable only???) seems to have speed presets. Why are these not
exposed to the libavcodec user?

Furthermore: Documentation is missing.
