Replying to cehoyos:

Please provide the input sample.

Let me know if I should upload to another file hosting service.

I had implemented decoder and encoder support for ffmpeg native aac a few years back:
@yuuki It should decode your 22.2 stream ; you can encode too btw.
I had started submitting part of this code on the list but then the reviewing took a while and I lost interest.
There's also the patchset by jeeb:

Thanks pkv. I've rebased your patch to n4.3 and gave it a shot, it works like a charm.

Remuxing to matroska doesn't work (expected) but decoding to wav definitely works. Hopefully we'll see some patches baked in soon and we can decode them in a video player.

comment:6 by jeeb, 2 years ago

At least my patch set seemed to enable remuxing to Matroska with the sample as I tested here locally (if you want a git version, it's available @ ).

Compared to pkv's, it only implements the parts that currently are blocking decoding and demuxing of channel_config = 13 AAC streams, while his implements much more parsing of the AAC bit stream (which is a generally GoodIdea, I think?).

Actual 22.2 to something-else downmix would have to be implemented separately so that players could utilize the decoded result through swresample or so.

Wouldn’t it be more useful if our decoder by default outputs six or eight channels?
