As opposed to the code that’s thoughtlessly being dumped into FFmpeg anyway,
hack upon hack? As opposed to three external AAC encoders, only one of which
is useful (fdk-aacenc)? As opposed to libx265 and libvpx which are TOTALLY
STABLE RIGHT? ;)
My sarcasm aside, dcadec is actually much cleaner than FFmpeg’s built-in DTS
decoder, according to FFmpeg developers. And libavcodec will still prefer the
built-in decoder in any case, so at least it shouldn’t be able to break
applications that don’t explicitly ask for it. It’ll be the built-in decoder
that’s breaking things instead.

That *is* the upstream project.
