To find out which *faad* related packages are installed:

rpm -qa|grep -i faad

This will probably (possibly!) list things like libfaad etc.

Find a likely-looking package name from the list (there may be more than one).

To find the files installed by a package:

rpm -ql <packagename>

You could also try:
locate libfaad

which will list any files on your system with that string in the name.

Post the output from those commands.
