And I have said repeatedly that IN MY CASE you are quite simply wrong! I
used that libfaac and I pushed the settings as high as they can go and got
an audio stream that sounded like my speakers were covered by a wet blanket.
When I use the AAC that comes with the current ffmpeg from GIT then the
audio is clear and crisp as it should be. 
So, again, in my case I get the exact opposite result you repeatedly insist
I should be getting.
