The, may I ask, why do you want MP? Most versions of Android support
Matroska, AFAIK.

To be perfectly honest, I wasn't not familiar with what Android core
supports natively. I based it off the fact that I knew that Android video
capture uses MP4, and because I had read that MP4 and MOV containers
supported the same codecs. The latter convinced me that I could keep the
source streams intact, and would only need to change the container.

Obviously, what I read was not entirely accurate.

I will try both this and the previous suggestion. Yours should allow me to
use the Opus codec.
