  1. As the title says I have tried the Mux programs here that I found and they all seem to fail.

    Any Suggestions that would work quickly without my needing to re-encode them ?

    Thanks in advance for any help

  2. The .mp4 container doesn't normally allow for .mp3 audio. Either mux it as .mkv or .avi -- or just bite the bullet and convert your audio to AAC. It's very quick.

    Both Mp4Box and L-Smash's muxer allow you to wrap MP3 audio in the MP4 container.
    FFmpeg also complies with the MP4 format specifications.
    If any of these programs fails with an MP3 stream, probably it's because that stream is broken or malformed...

    It CAN be done (obviously) but it is not as universally accepted as AAC. Players may reject it even with a good .mp3 stream.

    Then you should have said exactly that, instead of saying:

    The .mp4 container doesn't normally allow for .mp3 audio.
    Because it has always accepted MPEG-1 audio (read: MP1, MP2 and MP3).

    P.S.: please stop trying to "prove" that I am "always wrong", because you will always fail at that.

    With all respect -- THIS is the only thing I think you're wrong about.

  7. Thanks a lot, I am currently trying Audacity to convert the audio to be more compatible.

    @TBoneit - I would recommend first to show us a MediaInfo analysis of both streams, instead of converting (with quality loss) right away. It is indeed possible that you e.g. only believe to have MP3 audio, but it is instead a different format, and VLC only plays it because it doesn't rely on the filename extension only, but checks for more details to identify it. Similar guess for the video stream.

    And I agree with El Heggunte: The MP4 container will of course support MPEG Audio streams, from MPEG 1 Audio (at least Layer 2 and 3) to MPEG 2/4 AAC variants. Whether a specific player supports any combination is not the fault of the MP4 specifications, but the implementation in that player's firmware. The MP4 container even supports a few non-MPEG audio formats (PCM, AC3).
