    16    * In an MP4, you can store MPEG-4 video created by ffmpeg or x264. It stores audio in the AAC format. It is also possible to pass through Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound (AC3) audio from a DVD in an MP4 file, although it is a new standard and not widely supported. Perian and VLC can decode it, and the AppleTV can pass it through to a surround sound receiver. MP4 also supports chapters, for which !HandBrake uses Apple's chapter format. MP4 also is capable of storing [VariableFrameRate Variable Frame Rate] video. Be aware that chapters and AC3 audio can only be seen by QuickTime if you change the file extension from .mp4 to .m4v. !HandBrake will do this for you automatically when you enable those features, although this can be disabled in the preferences if you really want .mp4 at the end of the name. The MP4 format can also be optimized for "fast start" progressive downloads over the Web. It can also include "soft" text subtitles that can be turned on or off, instead of always being hard burned into the video frames.
