We should have a comment here explaining why that is needed

Using defines here would be great

A new line here would be great

Can't we make that a bit simpler by not duplicating the loop?

Something like:

int current = 0;

while (current < num) {
    int tmp = min(num - current, 32);

    cedrus_write(dev, VE_H264_TRIGGER_TYPE, 0x3 | (current << 8))
    while (...)
       ...

    current += tmp;
}
