sorry, my fault :(

i forgot the decode part: you need faad for this. get it from 
http://audiocoding.com .

the correct way:

mplayer -dumpaudio -aid 1 animatrix3.mov
mv stream.dump animatrix3begin.aac

mplayer -dumpaudio -aid 2 animatrix3.mov
mv stream.dump animatrix3main.aac

faad animatrix3begin.aac
faad animatrix3main.aac

cat animatrix3begin.wav animatrix3main.wav > animatrix3.wav

mplayer -audiofile animatrix3.wav animatrix3.mov

hope this helps,
