Yes, but how? ffmpeg proved an easy way to generate webm-dash-manifests,
but I cannot figure out how to use it to include the MPEG segments.
And MPEG-DASH manifest creation afterwards I couldn't figure out at all,
only with at least remuxing the files.

I have used the m4s segments, and I have seen a common instance of lip sync issues that I have never see using mpeg.ts segments. In my opinion, CMAF using mp4 segments is over-rated, and heavily promoted by commercial encoding and streaming engines like Wowza.
