One thing to be aware of with Opus is that it natively runs at 48kHz
sampling.  If your input audio is anything other than 48kHz it will
have to pass through a resampling stage before the Opus encoder.

If you don't want that, Ogg Vorbis is an alternative and well supported.

MP3, Vorbis and Opus are not patent encumbered.  However, LC-AAC is
still under patent until the end of this year (original publication
date of 1999 plus 20 years). The patents on HE-AAC (AAC+) and HE-AACv2
(eAAC+) don't run out until the middle of the next decade at least.
