I'm experiencing the same problem.  I added some additionaly debugging output
and discovered that faacDecInit2() of libfaad2 is called (locate in
libfaad/decoder/c), but it fails.  The return value is -1, which is an error. 
This return value is generated from a call to libfaad2's AudioSpecificConfig().
I haven't figured out where it fails inside of AudioSpecificConfig().

I'm figuring that it is the version of the libfaad2 that makes the difference
in being able to successfully play the audio.  What version of libfaad2 are
people using?

You can get a version by executing faad and looking at the beginning of the

What version of libfaad2 was originally used for the development of mplayer?

Using libfaad2-1.1 I get the following out for audio:

Opening audio decoder: [faad] AAC (MPEG2/4 Advanced Audio Coding)

dec_audio: Allocating 12288 + 65536 = 77824 bytes for output buffer
