Well, firstly sorry about my wrong english.
After, I readed all messages about GPL discussions in forum. I know the Brett’s opinion about this BUT I am in concordance with [i:gw0lc4ek]”until a court decides what is legal or not regarding this grey zone (since the license isn’t clear about this matter), nothing can be told for sure”[/i:gw0lc4ek] ([url:gw0lc4ek]http://forums.invisionpower.com/lofiversion/index.php/t209114.html[/url:gw0lc4ek] ) and don’t agree about “GPL is 100% viral” because I am using many GPL utils in Windows and it never will be GPL.
Ok, ok, discussions apart let me say what I need.
I am trying to do a ACCplus streaming player using FMOD and FAAD2 but I having many difficults because I have no experience with this and there are no real FMOD codec example, only the “raw_codec”, I think it is insufficient. But I would like to see a real codec, like OGG or MP3 and understand how to make the calls and the interaction with decoder library.
I developed a prototype using BASS, it working fine BUT I liken’t BASS (forgive me who like it), it is very very heavy. While FMOD works greatly on old computers, BASS can’t. 😉
I can’t believe there are nobody willing the same feature for FMOD, the better sound library on the world (wow!!!).

I’m not sure about all that GPL, patents & licensing. Knowing that FireLight are commercial company, it’s best for Brett to decide what action is most suitable for them.
But I’ll be really interrested in more detailed manual of how to implement a variable-bit-rate decoder.
Bret, would it be possible for you to open for example the source code of say the OGG decoder, as an example? (The DLL)

Of course, I agree completely with this. I am not asking Brett to develope a AAC codec if he believe it is illegal. Brett’s job is great, I think FMOD really is the most advanced audio library avaliable today. I was saying that is very, very interesting for us, FMod users to stay tuned with the AAC technology and, may be, to develope ourself a codec.
