Here is the Mp4muxer i used Mp4Box <---Nic's MP4Box Build

This Mp4box adds that specific uuid atom.

Mp4Box Syntax : MP4Box -add in.mp4 out.mp4

Tip: You can backup the original Mp4Box.exe file and replace it with the the one i provided, in this way muxing will take place on the fly.


With higher bitrates i can watch near Dvd quality videos on TV with my iPod (Tv-Out) :D

This tip is for those users for whom the iPod/iPhone Edition is not working or to make Mediacoder Full Edition the universal transcoder.

I think this deserves a sticky as there are a lot of people using an Iphone/Itouch/Ipod.

It's a preset. You have to copy and paste it into a textfile and rename it to .xml and then you can use the settings via File -> Load Preset.

Open notepad under Windows OS. Copy the XML settings code you see in Vboy's first post and paste into notepad. When you're done, go to File ---> Save As. Give the document a name and put xml extension after it's name.

Example:
Apple-iPod-iPhone-H264-AAC.xml


Change save as type to all files and click save button. Remember where you saved it.

Run MediaCoder. Go to File --> Load Preset. Locate document you created and click open.

What exactly is a textfile? How do you start one?
