 Replying to [comment:3 cehoyos]:
 > Does the sample work with the native decoder?

 Yes it does. That's what Chromium usually uses.

 > Please remind me of the advantage libfdk has over the native decoder.

 Patent royalties - most of AAC basic patents have expired now, and Red Hat
 have prepared a stripped version of fdk-aac which avoids any of the still
 live IP, allowing you to ship a royalty free AAC decoder and encoder pair,
 although not 100% accurate reproduction, it can save royalties depending
 what you're doing.
