Selecting AAC from the CLI
« on: August 20, 2018, 01:21:04 PM »
From the CLI how so I select AAC as the audio codec?

 Command line possible arguments :
    --audio-codec, set audio codec (MP2/MP3/AC3/NONE (WAV PCM)/TWOLAME/COPY)  (one arg )

Think not setting codec, think setting encoder. Depending on Avidemux build configuration, you can choose between LavAAC, FDK_AAC and Faac as value for --audio-codec when encoding audio to AAC.

The documentation other than the actual source code is utterly outdated, unfortunately.
