[FFmpeg-user] Changing the Quicktime "Format" visible in Quicktime Player

Hello, I'm using FFMpeg and x264 to code h.264 quicktime files from ProRes
originals, for users who mostly use QuickTime Player on MacOS.

This works pretty great, and the quality is much better than what I get
using Apple's own h.264 codec.

However, when I open these QuickTime files in QuickTime player, and press
command-I to get the info window, "Format" shows up as "libx264, 1920x1080,
Millions..." etc., while, if I do the same thing with a file coded with
Apple's h.264 codec, I get "H.264, 1920x1080, Millions", etc.

While this is a small niggle, I'm wondering if it's possible to fix, so that
people can't see what codec I'm using, and the files look like they've been
generated with Apple's codec?
