If your aim is to simply use html5, you don't need to use dash. You
can directly use the mp4 with your HTMLMediaElement.

If your aim is to use MediaSource Extension (MSE) ; then yes, use
DASH, but then your code to stream this stream becomes awfully more

Also keep in mind that if you use MSE with a sourcebuffer containing
combined audio/video, then this won't be handled properly in some web
browser: you need to use two source buffers; one for audio and one for
video: so you also need to split the audio and video and have two
