    1. Hardware acceleration is already available in VLC 2.0.x for Windows and Linux.

      It will come to the Mac in 2.1 this summer!

    1. Of course it does, if you are using a recent enough version of your favorite libavcodec flavor 🙂

      Or just our official binaries for Windows, OS X or Android.

  1. Is it just me or are there not any AAC encoders on Mac 2.0.7 or 2.1.0 … “Fix audio encoding for numerous codecs, notably mp3 and AAC” Trying to transcode a M3U8 stream out and need it to be AAC audio on Mac. MP3 works and I think I have to do a compile but don’t know where to download the AAC codec and how to compile.. Read the online compile instructions but they are complicated and not working after days of trying to figure it out. Any advice would be appreciated. Tried posting in forums without luck.
