I see that you already sent this to NLNet, but I hope it's not too late to add
AAC to the list of Audio Formats to accelerate. The reason being is that it is
one of the primary audio formats used on YouTube and also has common use as a
Bluetooth audio format. I would even argue that AAC is even more widely used
than AC3 and Vorbis and Opus at least in my experience as an average user.

In regards to the video formats, what is the legality of putting into the
hardware to help decoding for MPEG2, MPEG4, H.264, and H.265? I know these are
at least covered by the patent pool of MPEG LA (
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MPEG_LA ). Some of the audio codecs may or may
not also be tangled in legalities (not sure, I haven't really looked into it
for the audio formats).

Would it be prudent to get legal advice first? Or do you feel it is safe doing
