Not much. With ffmpeg -codecs I did not see anything that seemed to
work with MLV. And because all references where a few years old I was
afraid it was a stillborn child. And because I needed to implement
some changes before I could (my system does not recognise ExFAT at the
moment) I wanted at least an indication that my work would not be in
vain. ;-)

I am going to dive into it. Thanks.

It is mostly that I want to bypass the 30 minute limit. But I
understood that you could also get much better results. So I will dive
in that also.
