There's quite a large list of the fourccs in the file 
The first structure seems to do the mapping to ffmpeg id.

Search for fmp4 reveals:

    { VLC_FOURCC('F','M','P','4'), CODEC_ID_MPEG4,
      VIDEO_ES, "MPEG-4 Video" },
    { VLC_FOURCC('f','m','p','4'), CODEC_ID_MPEG4,
      VIDEO_ES, "MPEG-4 Video" },

Sorry if this info is irrelevant.
