     * to begin processing video data (e.g. by sending packets over a network) before the frame
     * is done encoding.
     *
     * This callback MUST do the following in order to work correctly:
     * 1) Have available an output buffer of at least size nal->i_payload*3/2 + 5 + 16.
     * 2) Call x264_nal_encode( h, dst, nal ), where dst is the output buffer.
     * After these steps, the content of nal is valid and can be used in the same way as if
     * the NAL unit were output by x264_encoder_encode.
     *
     * This does not need to be synchronous with the encoding process: the data pointed to
     * by nal (both before and after x264_nal_encode) will remain valid until the next
     * x264_encoder_encode call.  The callback must be re-entrant.
     *
     * This callback does not work with frame-based threads; threads must be disabled
     * or sliced-threads enabled.  This callback also does not work as one would expect
     * with HRD -- since the buffering period SEI cannot be calculated until the frame
     * is finished encoding, it will not be sent via this callback.
     *
     * Note also that the NALs are not necessarily returned in order when sliced threads is
     * enabled.  Accordingly, the variable i_first_mb and i_last_mb are available in
     * x264_nal_t to help the calling application reorder the slices if necessary.
     *
     * When this callback is enabled, x264_encoder_encode does not return valid NALs;
     * the calling application is expected to acquire all output NALs through the callback.
     *
     * It is generally sensible to combine this callback with a use of slice-max-mbs or

/* x264_encoder_invalidate_reference:
 *      An interactive error resilience tool, designed for use in a low-latency one-encoder-few-clients
 *      system.  When the client has packet loss or otherwise incorrectly decodes a frame, the encoder
 *      can be told with this command to "forget" the frame and all frames that depend on it, referencing
 *      only frames that occurred before the loss.  This will force a keyframe if no frames are left to
 *      reference after the aforementioned "forgetting".
 *
 *      It is strongly recommended to use a large i_dpb_size in this case, which allows the encoder to
 *      keep around extra, older frames to fall back on in case more recent frames are all invalidated.
 *      Unlike increasing i_frame_reference, this does not increase the number of frames used for motion
 *      estimation and thus has no speed impact.  It is also recommended to set a very large keyframe
 *      interval, so that keyframes are not used except as necessary for error recovery.
 *
 *      x264_encoder_invalidate_reference is not currently compatible with the use of B-frames or intra
 *      refresh.
 *
 *      In multi-pass encoding, if x264_encoder_invalidate_reference is called differently in each pass,
 *      behavior is undefined.
 *

 *      Should not be called during an x264_encoder_encode, but multiple calls can be made simultaneously.
