i have a PCIE Hardware Encoder, that i used for video gameplay stream,

the Avermedia Live Gamer HD (C985) http://www.avermedia.com/Product/ProductDetail.aspx?Id=571

So if i used the new XSplit 1.1, in CODEC settings, i can choose "Avermedia Encoder" and if i use the official app RECentral it takes advantage of the hardware encoder too, that's means much faster encoder and almost no cpu usage,

so i was wondering, is there any way to take advantage of this, on others applications? like video converters, Adobe Premiere or Adobe After Effects? or even apps that do transcode?

No. Since there is no API standard for hardware media encoders, each encoding library will need its own way to access the encoder.
