The FAAC project includes the AAC encoder FAAC and decoder FAAD2. It supports several MPEG-4 object types (LC, Main, LTP, HE AAC, PS) and file formats (ADTS AAC, raw AAC, MP4), multichannel and gapless en/decoding as well as MP4 metadata tags. The codecs are compatible with standard-compliant audio applications using one or more of these profiles.
SDLucid is a C++ wrapper library for the SDL media library. It aims to not only be a wrapper, but to also offer a cleaner interface than the original SDL, as well as increased functionality. This additional functionality includes fonts, PNG loading, graphical primitives, built-in mixing, mod playing, and MP3 decoding. SDLucid follows naming conventions, approximating those of the Standard Template Library.
Streamripper records MP3, Ogg, AAC, and NSV audio and video files from Shoutcast and Icecast compatible streams. The streams can be recorded as a whole or in individual tracks. Streamripper also features a relay stream, which lets you listen or watch live from multiple clients while recording.
