Indeed I am! I extracted the files from the old deb
(libfaad2-0_2.0.0-0.3_i386.deb) I have to get it working, which it
looks like is basically what Ubuntu does here. Problem is, it breaks
the mplayer packages to have it installed, which is why I did it this

Should I open a ticket for this? It seems like what AAC support needs
libmp4ff for should be changed to use other libraries. I believe its
used for tag support, which I know at least Amarok uses taglib now, so
it seems like MythMusic should move on too?
