Mux a live h264 stream into mp4 realtime with pure python?

Tue Nov 17, 2015 12:54 pm

The camera streams raw h264 using picamera. Can we mux this directly to mp4 without much overhead from within python?
I have googled around but everyone seems to resort to external programs like gpac/mp4box or ffmpeg.

Is that really necessary? Is adding container metadata to the raw stream such a complex and overhead'y endeavor?
