This can be done using transcode, with one caveat: you'll need to use a separate utility (such as mp4creator from the mpeg4ip package) to do the final multiplexing, since transcode itself doesn't support MP4 file creation yet. Command lines vary depending on your source data and how you want to encode it, of course, but here's basically what I do to create MP4s: transcode -i (input-file) -o (output-file).mp4.264 -m (output-file).mp4.mp3 -y x264,lame,raw mp4creator -create=(output-file).mp4.mp3 (output-file).mp4 mp4creator -create=(output-file).mp4.264 -rate=(input-fps) (output-file).mp4 --Andrew Church [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://achurch.org/
