MediaCoder Removes NeroAAC, tsMuxeR

Noticed today when I loaded MediaCoder to convert some videos to h264 that in the release notes they’re about to remove NeroAAC and tsMuxeR. I always wondered when this would happen as it was a pretty clear license violation of the NeroAAC stuff (at least, from my IANAL point of view).

Presumably it won’t cause any problems, other than making it slightly more of a pain in the ass as you’ll have to download those things seperately. NeroAAC is still available for a free download as long as you’re using it for non-commercial uses, but frustratingly there’s no obvious path to upgrade or license it if you actually do want to use it for a commercial purpose.
