Hi, are there any plans to make a nonfree version of ffmpeg
with libfaac enabled?
No. 1. It is definitely a violation of the GPL to enable both that and the
GPL components at the same time, or to link a version of FFmpeg with FAAC
support into a GPLed application and 2. the FFmpeg team also appears to
claim it is a violation of the LGPL to have an LGPL build of FFmpeg use non-
Free libraries (as opposed to getting used by non-Free applications), a
position which may or may not be shared by other parties, but the FFmpeg
developers definitely frown upon people redistributing binaries built with
--enable-nonfree and will put them into their Hall of Shame.
FFmpeg has a native AAC encoder which you can use instead (but which is
still considered experimental).
