Comment 1 Michael Johnson 2004-05-06 01:11:27 UTC
According to http://www.audiocoding.com/download.php

"Currently binaries can't be downloaded here. Dolby, the AAC licensing 
authority, won't allow that. There are however, always some binaries 
lying around on the internet, with some smart searching you might be 
able to find them.
  We do provide the source code to FAAC, FAAD and FAAD2 here. Please 
read the statement below, before downloading."

So should we set RESTRICTED on this?

this also goes for audio/faad the decoder part of faac
