Thanks to everyone for your replies i have forgotten to mention following :

nvcc  --version
nvcc: NVIDIA (R) Cuda compiler driver
Copyright (c) 2005-2016 NVIDIA Corporation
Built on Tue_Jan_10_13:22:03_CST_2017
Cuda compilation tools, release 8.0, V8.0.61

ffmpeg version N-86038-ge312ed0 Copyright (c) 2000-2017 the FFmpeg
  built with gcc 5.3.1 (Ubuntu 5.3.1-14ubuntu2.1) 20160413
  configuration: --prefix=/usr/src/ffmpeg/ffmpeg_build
--bindir=/usr/src/ffmpeg/bin --enable-gpl --enable-libass
--enable-libfdk-aac --enable-libfreetype --enable-libmp3lame
--enable-libopus --enable-libtheora --enable-libvorbis --enable-libvpx
--enable-libx264 --enable-libx265 --enable-nonfree --enable-nvenc
--enable-opencl --enable-librtmp --enable-libv4l2 --enable-libvpx

and even though it gives me :  Driver does not support the required nvenc
API version. Required: 8.0 Found: 7.1
maybe it's more ubuntu related question but if anyone have any idea what
could be wrong i would appreciate. Also i have compiled
ffmpeg from source and i have installed cuda toolkit and nvidia driver by
download from the site cuda_8.0.61_375.26_linux.run file.
