FFMpeg has added native xHE-AAC decoder

FFmpeg now implements a native xHE-AAC decoder. Currently, streams without (e)SBR, USAC or MPEG-H Surround are supported, which means the majority of xHE-AAC streams in use should work. Support for USAC and (e)SBR is coming soon. Work is also ongoing to improve its stability and compatibility. During the process we found several specification issues, which were then submitted back to the authors for discussion and potential inclusion in a future errata.

We recommend using Opus.
