MP4 Container

Added by Markus A. over 1 year ago

Hi
Maybe a already stressed topic, but is there a chance to get mp4 containers for h.264 codecs into the stream profiles ?
Could I a add this by modify some configuration files ?
Regards Markus

The mp4 protocol does not support live streaming, the container require the total stream length to be present in the header.
There are variants of mp4 which goes around this design flaw, but last time I checked, no browser supported it.

yes, but I would need it only for transcoding recordings and not for live streaming.
This would save a lot of HD Space and is supported by Raspberry and Idevices.

the mp4 container does not perform better than the matroska container in that sense.
But if you really want an mp4 container, you can always post-process recordings quick and easy.
