Well, I'm using faad 1.2beta (1.1 has the same problem, though), and I
performed the procedure above already... but the audio stream doesn't
sound right.  It plays too fast, and the frequencies are too high.  It
sounds like the samplerate is wrong, but I've twiddled with various
parameters to no avail.  So, either the AAC stream is corrupt (seems
unlikely), or faad is broken (possible), or lastly, the demuxer is
buggering up the stream... I have no idea how likely that is. :)
