If you mean, select a demuxer for MP4, then no, there is no option just for
that. And VLC won't know that it is an MP4 file until it has started the
demuxer anyway so this would not make much sense.
You can override the demuxer on a per-item basis though:
# vlc file/avformat:///path/to/file.mp4
# vlc /path/to/file.mp4 :demux=avformat
That also kinda works from the UI.
