I dont have a list of tickets that used libfaac and iam not sure how
to search for them
you can find some by searching for
"-> aac (libfaac)"
This will only work when that part of the output was quoted in the
ticket, like in tickets with full uncut output. Iam not sure this
covers all ffmpeg versions either
the more tickets can be turned into fate tests the better, libfaac or
Also i do not object to libfaacs removial i just was trying to point
out the disadvantages i saw if its done.
As you surely noiced i rarely am a supporter of removing features ...
