Is there any application/converter for linux to create such m4v-files? I 
would like to stream my own videos and not foreign videos. I tried 
mp4creator from the mpeg4ip-tools but I couldn't create a m4v-file which 
can be streamed. There must be the possibility because the files I can 
receive via openRTSP from the web have also been created anyway. Or not? ;-)

Thanks for the testfile.
