No problem. I found out a way to retain the audio quality of the pcm_s24le
codec from a mov container when pulling it into a mp4 container by using aac
and -strict experimental in the command line. Still s16 instead of s24 but I
couldn't hear any diff in the sound quality like I could when using libfaac.
