VLC could not decode the format "mp4a" (MPEG AAC Audio)

I understand that I have to install vlc-codecs but I am unable to find it in bundles.
I installed vlc by sudo swupd bundle-add vlc

Is there any other way or workaround to address this issue ?

Take a look at

That did not work but gnomeMpv seems to work fine if installed by flatpak install flathub io.github.GnomeMpv and fails to work when sudo swupd bundle-add mpv.

Similarly vlc version of flatpak works but not bundle version.

Full explanation: AAC is not an open media codec standard, and Intel HD Graphics hardware can not decode it, therefore, vlc will show the errors you encountered.

What about https://www.iis.fraunhofer.de/en/ff/amm/impl.html

and its implementation:

Same same, we can’t ship any implementation.
