I looked into doing that, but the code handling those errors in a
generic way would need quite some ugly special cases to do that.
Still, I might look into giving a better error that at some point.
It being called cuda is inaccurate anyway, so renaming it to ffnvcodec
is not too terrible.
So for now, I just pushed this, and will look into a more verbose error
