this is not feasable and absolutely useless, the muxer has ZERO knowledge 
about what encoder workarounds are needed, you cannot fill this struct from
hot air, the muxer would have to decode several frames to be able to just
_guess_ if a bug like incorrect padding at the end of mpeg4 frames happens
this is very codec specific stuff, it doesnt belong to the muxer layer

please forget it! send a path to libnut and you will see its not feasable

In the past you could go to a library and read, borrow or copy any book
Today you'd get arrested for mere telling someone where the library is
