One thing to note is that the native AAC encoder in ffmpeg is actually
significantly better than the VisualOn encoder in quality - see 
which describes the encoders the ffmpeg can use.

The issue is that enabling the native AAC encoder requires passing an
additional flag to allow the "experimental" codec. I suspect that
adding this flag would be a fairly simple patch to FreeSWITCH.
