This library contains an encoder implementation of the Advanced
Audio Coding (AAC) audio codec. The library is based on a codec
implementation by VisualOn as part of the Stagefright framework
from the Google Android project
I thought AAC is patent encumbered, doesn't it?
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
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.
