Do not use that demuxer. Use qtdemux instead, it works much much better.
The codec_data for AAC does include information about the number of
channels, but it's an AAC-specific thing, you'd need to parse it
yourself to find out.
The channel count is probably also in the caps anyway (from the
demuxer, if you use a decent demuxer), so you don't need to do that.
