Installation of faad2

Faad2 files come from a DOS platform, and the xmms/bmp dependency is broken:

patch -Np1 -i ../faad2-2.5-unix-no-xmms.diff

Compile faad2 by running the following commands:

./bootstrap &&
./configure --prefix=/usr &&
make

Now as root:

make install

Installation of faac

Faac files come from a DOS platform:

patch -Np1 -i ../faac-1.25-unix.diff

Compile faac with these commands:

./bootstrap &&
./configure --prefix=/usr &&
make

Now as root:

make install

Command Explanations

./bootstrap: The bootstrap script calls various autotools to generate a new configure script

Installed programs

faad: Decodes mp4 audio files to Microsoft WAV format (default) or RAW PCM data.

faac: Creates AAC audio files from raw PCM or .wav data. If you output to a file with a .mp4 or .m4a extension, the default behavior is to wrap the AAC data in MP4 container.

Installed libraries

libfaad.{so,a}, libmp4ff.{so,a}, optionally libmp4v2.{so,a} and libfaac.{so,a}
