Good to hear that the mp4 reader is coming along. As far as audio is
concerned, have you looked into faad2 available at
http://www.audiocoding.com. If I am not mistaken, 3ivx and Winamp use
it for decoding aac audio on Windows and I believe Winamp also uses it
to encode aac audio into mp4 files. There is also an aac
implementation in the Helix(Real) source tree but I am uncertain if
their license is compatible witht he one used but Haiku but it might
be possible to make a binary only dist. of the decoder.
You can find any relevant information regarding Helix at
Ok I might have a look at the audiocoding one. I looked at it once before and I thought it needed licencing.
-- Real Programs don't use shared text. Otherwise, how can they use functions for scratch space after they are finished calling them?
