Apple Compressor 4.1
on Jun 4, 2014 at 2:25:42 pm

I am running Compressor 4.1 and I have a custom-made setting that is based on Quicktime Movie (see attached pic#1) and has mp4 set as the file extension and uses the x.264 encoder. I have made this setting a few months ago and have used it since.

Now I'm trying to make another setting based on Quicktime Movie, but for the **** of it I can't switch the Extension from the default .mov to .,mp4.

Of course I can duplicate an existing setting and tweak it -- and that's what I did but I want to understand why I can't make a setting from scratc anymore.

Help appreciated

Compressor 4.1.1 supports H.264 .mp4 using Apple's codec. If you have the deprecated MyCometG3 x264 Quicktime Component it creates x264 .mov.

There's no way I know of to do x264 .mp4 in Compressor, only .mov.
It does do H.264 .mp4 using Apple's own codec.

MyCometG3 stopped development in 2011 as Apple is leaving Quicktime Components behind as part of the move to AVFoundation (CoreMedia).
