I read one article from microsoft, i.e. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/media-services/media-services-specifications-live-timed-metadata

azure will put timed metadata into fmp4, and will support various formats of timed metadata. As mpegts demuxer/muxer in ffmpeg support id3 tag, does ffmpeg's mp4 support the feature?

If you use the most general specification for it (which I think corresponds to -f mov for some reason) then you can pretty much put any stream in an mp4, though you might have to specify the codec tag, and if there’s no encoder, just make it copy unknown codec streams.
