As Bryn Reeves notes, you probably won't be able to play this file directly
within most media players. However, that wasn't your original
question. You original question was: How to get a MPEG-4 video file that
you can *stream*, using the "testMPEG4VideoStreamer" or
"testOnDemandRTSPServer" test programs.
If you rename your file "test.m4v", you will be able to stream it using
either of these test programs - and then you will be able to play the
resulting stream using "vlc" player, or "QuickTime Player" (by opening the
appropriate "rtsp://" URL).
