that would be the ideal case. but i could not figure out how to
achieve that. (i.e.) take multiple audio/video files of any format ->
convert them to multiple audio/video WebM files and generate the
manifest in one step. using this muxer one can get there in two steps.
first one to convert the audio/video streams to WebM and the second
one to generate the manifest. Generating the manifest is not possible
before the WebM file is fully generated.
