I wouldn't say "translate". The files (mov, mp4 etc.)
start with a "ftyp" atom and (I believe) the
specifications call the content of the atom "major
brand". At least qt, isom, mp42 exist, they are all
compatible when reading, but need different handling
when writing, that's why different muxers but only
one demuxer exists.
