            I use the "decodebin" GStreamer element for doing the decoding and it is supposed to be able to read anything for which GStreamer has an element installed and registered. I have only tested Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, WAV, and MP3, as I don't have files in other formats.

            Does this also include the existing plugins for FAAD2 and FAAC, so AAC/MP4 decoding and encoding is possible, too? Did you perhaps test this with your application?
