MP4 Splitter

Updated: 14 Apr 2014

In order to play MP4 files, you must have MP4 Splitter installed. Not to be confused with MPEG-4 Video, the MP4 Bitstream format is a wrapper format, similar to AVI/OGM/Matroska.
The format was licensed from Apple's QuickTime by the MPEG group as the official file format for MPEG-4 content.

It should become more popular as commercial entities start shipping more MPEG-4 content.

How to install MP4 Splitter:

If you are unable to install the filter, please read this small guide: How to install/uninstall DLL and AX codec files from Guides section.

Changes in MP4 Splitter 1.4.3:

- correct aspect ratio for video tracks, has a higher priority value from the header(atom 'tkhd');
- added support for '2Vuy', 'DVOO', 'yuvs', 'yuv2', DNxHD, FFV1, 'v308', 'v408', 'V410';

Important Note:

- Gabest MP4 Splitter can't be used with the Haali Media Splitter installed. So it's not advisable to have both files installed on your system in the same time.
