Does this mean, that there is no (at least no documented) way to
create a m4a file with the Quicktime API?
My problem with Apple's Chapter Tool is that it comes with a standard
Apple License, that means (as far as I can tell) that I'm not allowed
to include the Chapter Tool into my project and redistribute it.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.

In order to get a m4a file I suppose its necessary to export the

With that I've got a mp4-file where the chapter track and id3 tags
are gone and the URL-Text track and image track are mixed together to
one unclickable image track.
Are there any settings (maybe with QTMovieExportSettings) that give
me control over this? Or is there a way to do this task with old

over again and couldn't find anything useful about this.
Anyone can help?
