All rights reserved.
The Fraunhofer FDK AAC Codec Library for Android ("FDK AAC Codec") is software that implements
the MPEG Advanced Audio Coding ("AAC") encoding and decoding scheme for digital audio.
This FDK AAC Codec software is intended to be used on a wide variety of Android devices.
AAC's HE-AAC and HE-AAC v2 versions are regarded as today's most efficient general perceptual
audio codecs. AAC-ELD is considered the best-performing full-bandwidth communications codec by
independent studies and is widely deployed. AAC has been standardized by ISO and IEC as part
of the MPEG specifications.
Patent licenses for necessary patent claims for the FDK AAC Codec (including those of Fraunhofer)
may be obtained through Via Licensing ( or through the respective patent owners
individually for the purpose of encoding or decoding bit streams in products that are compliant with
the ISO/IEC MPEG audio standards. Please note that most manufacturers of Android devices already license
these patent claims through Via Licensing or directly from the patent owners, and therefore FDK AAC Codec
software may already be covered under those patent licenses when it is used for those licensed purposes only.
Commercially-licensed AAC software libraries, including floating-point versions with enhanced sound quality,
are also available from Fraunhofer. Users are encouraged to check the Fraunhofer website for additional

\page INTRO Introduction
\section SCOPE Scope
This document describes the high-level interface and usage of the ISO/MPEG-2/4 AAC Decoder
library developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIS).
Depending on the library configuration, it implements decoding of AAC-LC (Low-Complexity),
HE-AAC (High-Efficiency AAC, v1 and v2), AAC-LD (Low-Delay) and AAC-ELD (Enhanced Low-Delay).
All references to SBR (Spectral Band Replication) are only applicable to HE-AAC and AAC-ELD
versions of the library. All references to PS (Parametric Stereo) are only applicable to
HE-AAC v2 versions of the library.
\section DecoderBasics Decoder Basics
This document can only give a rough overview about the ISO/MPEG-2 and ISO/MPEG-4 AAC audio
coding standard. To understand all the terms in this document, you are encouraged to read
the following documents.
- ISO/IEC 13818-7 (MPEG-2 AAC), which defines the syntax of MPEG-2 AAC audio bitstreams.
- ISO/IEC 14496-3 (MPEG-4 AAC, subpart 1 and 4), which defines the syntax of MPEG-4 AAC audio bitstreams.
- Lutzky, Schuller, Gayer, Krämer, Wabnik, "A guideline to audio codec delay", 116th AES Convention, May 8, 2004
MPEG Advanced Audio Coding is based on a time-to-frequency mapping of the signal. The signal
is partitioned into overlapping portions and transformed into frequency domain. The spectral
components are then quantized and coded.\n
An MPEG2 or MPEG4 AAC audio bitstream is composed of frames. Contrary to MPEG-1/2 Layer-3 (mp3),
the length of individual frames is not restricted to a fixed number of bytes, but can take on
any length between 1 and 768 bytes.
\page LIBUSE Library Usage
\section InterfaceDescritpion API Description
All API header files are located in the folder /include of the release package. They are described in
detail in this document. All header files are provided for usage in C/C++ programs. The AAC decoder library
API functions are located at aacdecoder_lib.h.
In binary releases the decoder core resides in statically linkable libraries called for example libAACdec.a,
(Linux) or FDK_aacDec_lib (Microsoft Visual C++).
\section Calling_Sequence Calling Sequence
For decoding of ISO/MPEG-2/4 AAC or HE-AAC v2 bitstreams the following sequence is mandatory. Input read
and output write functions as well as the corresponding open and close functions are left out, since they
may be implemented differently according to the user's specific requirements. The example implementation in
main.cpp uses file-based input/output, and in such case call mpegFileRead_Open() to open an input file and
to allocate memory for the required structures, and the corresponding mpegFileRead_Close() to close opened
files and to de-allocate associated structures. mpegFileRead_Open() tries to detect the bitstream format and
in case of MPEG-4 file format or Raw Packets file format (a Fraunhofer IIS proprietary format) reads the Audio
Specific Config data (ASC). An unsuccessful attempt to recognize the bitstream format requires the user to
provide this information manually (see \ref CommandLineUsage). For any other bitstream formats that are
usually applicable in streaming applications, the decoder itself will try to synchronize and parse the given
bitstream fragment using the FDK transport library. Hence, for streaming applications (without file access)
this step is not necessary.
-# Call aacDecoder_Open() to open and retrieve a handle to a new AAC decoder instance.
\dontinclude main.cpp
\skipline aacDecoder_Open
-# If out-of-band config data (Audio Specific Config (ASC) or Stream Mux Config (SMC)) is available, call
aacDecoder_ConfigRaw() to pass it to the decoder and before the decoding process starts. If this data is
not available in advance, the decoder will get it from the bitstream and configure itself while decoding
with aacDecoder_DecodeFrame().
-# Begin decoding loop.
\skipline do {
-# Read data from bitstream file or stream into a client-supplied input buffer ("inBuffer" in main.cpp).
If it is very small like just 4, aacDecoder_DecodeFrame() will
repeatedly return ::AAC_DEC_NOT_ENOUGH_BITS until enough bits were fed by aacDecoder_Fill(). Only read data
when this buffer has completely been processed and is then empty. For file-based input execute
mpegFileRead_Read() or any other implementation with similar functionality.
-# Call aacDecoder_Fill() to fill the decoder's internal bitstream input buffer with the client-supplied
external bitstream input buffer.
\skipline aacDecoder_Fill
-# Call aacDecoder_DecodeFrame() which writes decoded PCM audio data to a client-supplied buffer. It is the
client's responsibility to allocate a buffer which is large enough to hold this output data.
\skipline aacDecoder_DecodeFrame
If the bitstream's configuration (number of channels, sample rate, frame size) is not known in advance, you may
call aacDecoder_GetStreamInfo() to retrieve a structure containing this information and then initialize an audio
output device. In the example main.cpp, if the number of channels or the sample rate has changed since program
start or since the previously decoded frame, the audio output device will be re-initialized. If WAVE file output
is chosen, a new WAVE file for each new configuration will be created.
\skipline aacDecoder_GetStreamInfo
-# Repeat steps 5 to 7 until no data to decode is available anymore, or if an error occured.
\skipline } while
-# Call aacDecoder_Close() to de-allocate all AAC decoder and transport layer structures.
\skipline aacDecoder_Close
\section BufferSystem Buffer System
There are three main buffers in an AAC decoder application. One external input buffer to hold bitstream
data from file I/O or elsewhere, one decoder-internal input buffer, and one to hold the decoded output
PCM sample data, whereas this output buffer may overlap with the external input buffer.
The external input buffer is set in the example framework main.cpp and its size is defined by ::IN_BUF_SIZE.
You may freely choose different sizes here. To feed the data to the decoder-internal input buffer, use the
function aacDecoder_Fill(). This function returns important information about how many bytes in the
external input buffer have not yet been copied into the internal input buffer (variable bytesValid).
Once the external buffer has been fully copied, it can be re-filled again.
In case you want to re-fill it when there are still unprocessed bytes (bytesValid is unequal 0), you
would have to additionally perform a memcpy(), so that just means unnecessary computational overhead
and therefore we recommend to re-fill the buffer only when bytesValid is 0.
\image latex dec_buffer.png "Lifecycle of the external input buffer" width=9cm
The size of the decoder-internal input buffer is set in tpdec_lib.h (see define ::TRANSPORTDEC_INBUF_SIZE).
You may choose a smaller size under the following considerations:
- each input channel requires 768 bytes
- the whole buffer must be of size 2^n
So for example a stereo decoder:
TRANSPORTDEC\_INBUF\_SIZE = 2 * 768 = 1536 => 2048
tpdec_lib.h and TRANSPORTDEC_INBUF_SIZE are not part of the decoder's library interface. Therefore
only source-code clients may change this setting. If you received a library release, please ask us and
we can change this in order to meet your memory requirements.
\page OutputFormat Decoder audio output
\section OutputFormatObtaining Obtaining channel mapping information
The decoded audio output format is indicated by a set of variables of the CStreamInfo structure.
While the members sampleRate, frameSize and numChannels might be quite self explaining,
pChannelType and pChannelIndices might require some more detailed explanation.
These two arrays indicate what is each output channel supposed to be. Both array have
CStreamInfo::numChannels cells. Each cell of pChannelType indicates the channel type, described in
the enum ::AUDIO_CHANNEL_TYPE defined in FDK_audio.h. The cells of pChannelIndices indicate the sub index
among the channels starting with 0 among all channels of the same audio channel type.
The indexing scheme is the same as for MPEG-2/4. Thus indices are counted upwards starting from the front
direction (thus a center channel if any, will always be index 0). Then the indices count up, starting always
with the left side, pairwise from front toward back. For detailed explanation, please refer to
ISO/IEC 13818-7:2005(E), chapter
In case a Program Config is included in the audio configuration, the channel mapping described within
it will be adopted.
In case of MPEG-D Surround the channel mapping will follow the same criteria described in ISO/IEC 13818-7:2005(E),
but adding corresponding top channels to the channel types front, side and back, in order to avoid any
loss of information.
\section OutputFormatChange Changing the audio output format
The channel interleaving scheme and the actual channel order can be changed at runtime through the
parameters ::AAC_PCM_OUTPUT_INTERLEAVED and ::AAC_PCM_OUTPUT_CHANNEL_MAPPING. See the description of those
parameters and the decoder library function aacDecoder_SetParam() for more detail.
\section OutputFormatExample Channel mapping examples
The following examples illustrate the location of individual audio samples in the audio buffer that
is passed to aacDecoder_DecodeFrame() and the expected data in the CStreamInfo structure which can be obtained
by calling aacDecoder_GetStreamInfo().
\subsection ExamplesStereo Stereo
a AAC-LC bit stream which has channelConfiguration = 2 in its audio specific config would lead
to the following values in CStreamInfo:
CStreamInfo::numChannels = 2
CStreamInfo::pChannelType = { ::ACT_FRONT, ::ACT_FRONT }
CStreamInfo::pChannelIndices = { 0, 1 }
Since ::AAC_PCM_OUTPUT_INTERLEAVED is set to 0, the audio channels will be located as contiguous blocks
in the output buffer as follows:
<left sample 0> <left sample 1> <left sample 2> ... <left sample N>
<right sample 0> <right sample 1> <right sample 2> ... <right sample N>
Where N equals to CStreamInfo::frameSize .
\subsection ExamplesSurround Surround 5.1
a AAC-LC bit stream which has channelConfiguration = 6 in its audio specific config, would lead
to the following values in CStreamInfo:
CStreamInfo::numChannels = 6
CStreamInfo::pChannelType = { ::ACT_FRONT, ::ACT_FRONT, ::ACT_FRONT, ::ACT_LFE, ::ACT_BACK, ::ACT_BACK }
CStreamInfo::pChannelIndices = { 1, 2, 0, 0, 0, 1 }
Since ::AAC_PCM_OUTPUT_CHANNEL_MAPPING is 1, WAV file channel ordering will be used. For a 5.1 channel
scheme, thus the channels would be: front left, front right, center, LFE, surround left, surround right.
Thus the third channel is the center channel, receiving the index 0. The other front channels are
front left, front right being placed as first and second channels with indices 1 and 2 correspondingly.
There is only one LFE, placed as the fourth channel and index 0. Finally both surround
channels get the type definition ACT_BACK, and the indices 0 and 1.
Since ::AAC_PCM_OUTPUT_INTERLEAVED is set to 1, the audio channels will be placed in the output buffer
as follows:
<front left sample 0> <front right sample 0>
<center sample 0> <LFE sample 0>
<surround left sample 0> <surround right sample 0>
<front left sample 1> <front right sample 1>
<center sample 1> <LFE sample 1>
<surround left sample 1> <surround right sample 1>
<front left sample N> <front right sample N>
<center sample N> <LFE sample N>
<surround left sample N> <surround right sample N>
Where N equals to CStreamInfo::frameSize .
\subsection ExamplesArib ARIB coding mode 2/1
in case of a ARIB bit stream using coding mode 2/1 as described in ARIB STD-B32 Part 2 Version 2.1-E1, page 61,
would lead to the following values in CStreamInfo:
CStreamInfo::numChannels = 3
CStreamInfo::pChannelType = { ::ACT_FRONT, ::ACT_FRONT,:: ACT_BACK }
CStreamInfo::pChannelIndices = { 0, 1, 0 }
The audio channels will be placed as follows in the audio output buffer:
<front left sample 0> <front right sample 0> <mid surround sample 0>
<front left sample 1> <front right sample 1> <mid surround sample 1>
<front left sample N> <front right sample N> <mid surround sample N>
Where N equals to CStreamInfo::frameSize .

* \brief Fill AAC decoder's internal input buffer with bitstream data from the external input buffer.
* The function only copies such data as long as the decoder-internal input buffer is not full.
* So it grabs whatever it can from pBuffer and returns information (bytesValid) so that at a
* subsequent call of %aacDecoder_Fill(), the right position in pBuffer can be determined to
* grab the next data.
* \param self AAC decoder handle.
* \param pBuffer Pointer to external input buffer.
* \param bufferSize Size of external input buffer. This argument is required because decoder-internally
* we need the information to calculate the offset to pBuffer, where the next
* available data is, which is then fed into the decoder-internal buffer (as much
* as possible). Our example framework implementation fills the buffer at pBuffer
* again, once it contains no available valid bytes anymore (meaning bytesValid equal 0).
* \param bytesValid Number of bitstream bytes in the external bitstream buffer that have not yet been
* copied into the decoder's internal bitstream buffer by calling this function.
* The value is updated according to the amount of newly copied bytes.
* \return Error code.
