can faad2 support multiple aac decoder instance
Hi,

Can faad2 support multiple aac decoder  instance? (That means if I can create multiple decoder and decode several files simultaneously)
Can faac support multiple aac encoder  instance?

Thanks.

Generally, I don't think decoders support any particular number of instances.  Rather, the operating system and hardware they are run on typically determines that.

I'm not sure I understand the question. Yes, you can launch multiple instances of faad/faac at once, manually, via a script, or whatever.
See my profile for measurements, tools and recommendations.

Maybe the question is about thread safety of faac and faad2 DLLs?

As far as I remember FAAD2 at least requires you to allocate all its working memory in a structure and pass it into every function, so it's likely to be thread-safe.
