It doesn't matter, your issue is (basically) with the video.

That's incorrect, AAC may be "proprietary" but it is well defined
within the MPEG standards. ffmpeg has a wide choice of AAC encoders it
can use:
Its own "aac" encoder, which needs no external libraries, may not be
the best, but it works. (Add "-strict experimental" on the command line
to activate it.

I'd have to check the binaries myself to see which AAC encoders are
included. But compiling yourself is better anyway. :-) For just
demuxing, muxing, copying, and encoding aac, you probably don't need
any external libraries at all. (Just guessing here.)
