I am sorry for the confusion I seem to have caused in this thread. All I really can say is that in it's current state, the mp4 demuxer seems to refuse to demux videos recorded with an iPhone, even though it seems perfectly able to do so. I tried to rectify this, but my understanding of the ISO spec was probably a bit too superficial.
