MP4 Chapters

Post by donstreiff » Thu Sep 28, 2017 2:15 pm

Hi!

Is it possible to get the chapters saved in a mp4 file?

I saw this post viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1428 but i dont know if its not working for mp4 and only for mp3 or if im doing something wrong.

Thanks already!

Chapter markers in ID3v2 on MP3 will not be the same as how chapters are stored in MP4/Quicktime.

If you have a small sample .mp4 file with chapter markers I can take a quick look and see if the information is already being parsed somewhere, or if it can be easily added.
