Thanks for confirming Carl.

I thought I was adding the correct flags to my mp4 files but after a lot of testing it seems that because I am output using the tee function the flags I am adding are ignored and the output inherits the flags of the source.
Tee is currently -f tee "[f=mp4:use_fifo=1]
I am hoping I can add flags too, I will have a look about I am sure I will find something online.

That will not resolve 3rd party files but at least I will be producing media encoded as intended :)
