  1. The problem: I downloaded a half of mp4 file (30%, 50%, 90%) and want to see the contents - but VLC can't play "broken" (not finalized) mp4 video file/
    The question: Could anyone point me to some docs for how to finalize mp4 programmicaly? I need to understand the algorithm to create a program.
    Any help/theory/tips/info is appreciated

  2. Problem is that mp4 files some times have their headers at the end of the file, so without knowing the specifics of the formats inside adding new headers will be tricky.

    so the general idea would probably be:
    a. extract raw streams from mp4 structure as far as it exists
    b. guess formats&co
    b. write new mp4 header
