Yes, it is. You are misinterpreting the output.
Again, “DEA.L.” means support for Decoding, Encoding, Audio, not Video, and so on, see video - What are all codecs supported by FFmpeg? - Stack Overflow :
ffmpeg -codecs should give you all the info about the codecs available.
You will see some letters next to the codecs:
D =Decoding supported, E =Encoding supported, V =Video codec, A =Audio codec, S =Subtitle codec, S =Supports draw_horiz_band, D =Supports direct rendering method 1, T =Supports weird frame truncation
Do you see it listed with the ffmpeg --version command? If you do not see it then it will not work.
Forget “ffmpeg --version”! That only shows the compile options.
Many codecs are enabled automatically if the necessary libraries are found at compile time.
“ffmpeg -codecs” tells about what codecs are really supported.
What is your problem with the “your wrong” and now this?
What do you mean with that?
You are wrong, I repeat that.
And ffmpeg has AAC support, encoding and decoding, see the output of “ffmpeg -codecs”.
I am just trying to get aac audio stream working not anything else.
Just now I successfully transcoded an ogg/vorbis audio file to AAC, and the result to MP3 with ffmpeg.
And VLC played both files without problems and showed in its “Codec Information” dialog that it was AAC and MP3 respectively.
If it doesn’t work for you, you are doing something wrong.
And you still haven’t said what you are actually doing…
