Most "proper" container formats (MP4, AVI, Matroska, RMFF) contain the
private data for AAC. This is usually 2 bytes long for normal AAC and 5
bytes for HE-AAC.

Raw AAC files with ADTS headers (or even worse, ADIF headers) do NOT
contain these 2 or 5 bytes at all. For such files only decoding the AAC
data actually gives you the information whether or not the file uses
HE-AAC. Neither AVI Mux GUI nor mkvmerge contains an AAC decoder and
never will.

unconstitutional too, since clearly it de-emphasizes the commercial
nature of normal human interaction, and probably is a major impediment
to the commercial growth of prostitution. - Linus Torvalds
