I thought AAC is patent encumbered, doesn't it?
Comment 3 PRABIN KUMAR DATTA 2011-05-08 21:23:05 UTC
Upstream Comment on FE-Legal issue: vo-aacenc is one library implementing an AAC encoder, libfaac is another. The patents don't cover any particular implementation - they're essential to implementing the standard and thus cover all implementations. So there can not be any implementations of AAC (nor AMR-WB) that isn't covered by patents. Copyrightwise, however, they are proper opensource, contrary to some earlier AAC and AMR-WB libraries, which were either totally unredistributable (libamr) or that have dubious origin and thus aren't considered properly redistributable either.

Closing this bug then. Perhaps you may consider packaging vo-aacenc in RPMFusion or other third-party repo.
