[FFmpeg-user] MXF to MP4 Conversion Problem

I've had some luck on using Quicktime MOV containers to retain uncompressed
PCM audio tracks. Quicktime MOV files accept uncompressed PCM audio
natively and since MP4 and MOV are quite similar, this may also be a good
alternative if the file is intended to be used on an environment that
accepts both formats.

...and this may not work in all occasions (so be warned), but there were
cases when I would generate a Quicktime MOV file and rename the extension
to MP4 to make it readable in softwares that would only accept MP4 content.
