We consider the faad2 plugin a free software implementation of some patented
algorithms. As European based project, patent doesn't apply in this case.
So this component is in the free section. But the faac (encoder) is in the
nonfree one because of a weird copyright issue with the headers.

Best is to rely on the ffmpeg internal AAC encoder/decoder if it fits your
(Or use opus or flac)
