There is a comment in the code:

 * NOTA BENE: this module requires the linking against a library which is
 * known to require licensing under the GNU General Public License version 2

  • a52-dynrng <boolean> : Dynamic range compression makes the loud sounds softer, and the soft sounds louder, so you can more easily listen to the stream in a noisy environment without disturbing anyone.
