An easy way to get a raw MPEG-4 video file is to find the "rtsp://" URL of 
some public MPEG-4 video stream, and run "openRTSP" to download the video 
stream.  For example, if you run
         openRTSP rtsp://christianchallenge.org:554/ccistream/sunday.mp4

you'll end up with a file named "video-MP4V-ES-2".  If you rename this 
"test.m4v", you'll be able to re-stream it (using "testMPEG4VideoStreamer" 
or "testOnDemandRTSPServer").
