What's New

AAC Encoders

FFmpeg’s native AAC encoder has been steadily improving and now produces audio with quality comparable to other AAC encoders. It was recently marked as stable and is no longer considered experimental. The quality of available AAC encoders now looks like this:
Fraunhofer FDK AAC (libfdk_aac) > Nero AAC > FFmpeg’s Native AAC encoder (aac) > libfaac > libvo_aacenc

Support has been added to Selene for encoding audio with FFmpeg’s AAC encoder and the Fraunhofer FDK AAC encoder (libfdk_aac). Using Nero AAC is not recommended anymore as development seems to have stopped. libfdk_aac gives better quality and can be easily installed from the Ubuntu repositories. Install the libfdk-aac0 package on your Ubuntu system to get the encoder.

sudo apt-get install libfdk-aac0

There’s a new option to change the AAC profile. It is recommended to keep this as ‘Auto’ which defaults to AAC-LC. AAC-LC is suitable for all general purpose encoding tasks while HE-AAC/HE-AACv2 is suitable for encoding at low bitrates (64 kbps and lower).
