I agree with Mark here. 
Followed the issue now for a while and opened a similar (not went into this deep technical level) issue some time ago.

I guess it should be marked as a bug and - if possible - should be fixed. 
Thanks, Andreas

It seems clear to me, and others, that the current .mov muxer produces a file which is incompatible with Quicktime itself. AAC priming in this container does not follow as advised and that appears to be the main reason its breaks when decoded.

Its not my intention to be accusatory, I’m genuinely trying to help improve the tool as best I can. A re-engagement from the experts here would be hugely appreciated and I will do all I can to help.
