Transcoding with Cuda is 10 times faster than just cpu alone

If you use NV drivers then make sure you use the drivers from Nvidia and
build a new kernel everytime you replace either the kernel or the drivers.

You got my curiosity up, so I'll download that thing later (a run file for 11.04 which hopefully will work on 11.10!) and see what happens. Sounds nifty. Ric
