Looking at libavcodec/allcodecs.c:
>> grep -E 'AA(C|D)' libavcodec/allcodecs.c
REGISTER_DECODER (AAC, aac);
REGISTER_ENCODER (LIBFAAC, libfaac);
REGISTER_DECODER (LIBFAAD, libfaad);
REGISTER_DECODER (MPEG4AAC, mpeg4aac);
REGISTER_PARSER (AAC, aac);
note that our strip.sh removes the 2nd like anyway.
The application using ffmpeg can therefore choose between the LIBFAAD
and the AAC decoder. note that the first chunks of the AAC encoder have
already been merged, so that will be changed from REGISTER_DECODER to
For ffmpeg users like gstreamer this will most probably mean that they
need to be adapted to use the new codec.
