How to export/extract 1 stream from a multiplexed file?
on May 7, 2015 at 7:50:02 am

Hi everyone,

I am stuck on this one: I have a file which ends on .mp4 extension, but no video player/editing program will recognize it. Except for VLC, that is. Now here's the catch: the file contains of 2 videostreams and 4 audio streams. I need 1 audio stream, but don't mind that, I've managed to extract that via other ways.

What I am stuck with is: how can I chose which stream I would like to export?

In the attached image, you will see the information VLC is telling me:
Stream0 = 320x256 - which is the default it will export, but I don't need that one
Stream 1 = 720x576 - which is the one I need

Just how?
Oh yeah, to make it all fun for experimenting, this file contains 7,5 hours of video....

Thx for any help!

This idea is a long shot since you said no other program will open it, but have you tried QuickTime 7 Pro, going to Show Movie Properties, deleting the track you don't need, and doing File Save As?

@ericstrand11


thx for trying to help me out.

I've tried all possible video players know to men.
Well, on a Mac anyway.

The solution came from a PC.
A colleague of me has an H264 encoder on it, and was actually able to select the desired video stream and to export is.

Amen to that.

guess I'll just have to kiss this pimped out MacPro goodbye and switch to the dark side...
