How to quickly compile libaacplus


What follows is purely for historical interest.

HE-AAC audio v2 (with SBR + PS) is the superb audio encoder used to encode high quality audio at really low bitrates (32 kbit/s). Quote from Wikipedia "Data from this testing also indicated that some individuals confused 48 kbit/s encoded material with an uncompressed original."

In order to quickly compile your libaacplus library, you can type the following commands in your shell:

# apt-get install libfftw3-dev pkg-config autoconf automake libtool unzip
$ wget
$ tar -xzf libaacplus-2.0.2.tar.gz
$ cd libaacplus-2.0.2
$ ./ --enable-shared --enable-static
$ make
# make install
# ldconfig

P.S. If you are using Ubuntu, you'll most probably have to use sudo for the last 2 commands, like:

$ sudo make install
$ sudo ldconfig

In case that website above (hosting libaacplus) goes offline, you can download the copy of that tar.gz file from here: (MD5: 3fc15d5aa91d0e8b8f94acb6555103da)

$ wget

NOTE: libaacplus is a non-free library, so you won't be able to build GPL alike FFmpeg with this library, i.e. your FFmpeg will not be redistributable.
