MP4AddTrackEdit - Add an edit segment to a track
MP4Timestamp startTime = 0,
MP4Duration duration = 0,
bool dwell = false
hFile Specifies the mp4 file to which the operation applies.
Specifies the track to which the operation applies.
editId Specifies the desired position in the edit list sequence for the
new edit segment. If the value is MP4_INVALID_EDIT_ID, then the
edit segment is added at the end of the existing edit list. Note
editId’s start with the value of 1, not 0.
Specifies the starting time of the edit segment in the track
Specifies the duration of the edit segment in the track time
dwell If false, the track media should be played at its normal rate.
If true, the media should be paused for the duration of this
edit segment. This is a mechanism by which one can delay the
start of a media track.
Upon success, the edit id of the new edit segment. Upon an error,
MP4AddTrackEdit adds an edit segment to the track edit list.
The track edit list is a feature that allows creation of an alternate
timeline for the track, typically cutting out segments of the full
track to form an shorten, cleaned up version. The edit segments that
form the edit list are a sequence of track start times and durations,
they do not alter the track media in any way. I.e. no data can be lost
via edit list operations.
To read out the editted version of the track, use
MP4ReadSampleFromEditTime() instead of MP4ReadSample().
To export the editted version of the track to a new track, potentially
in a new mp4 file, see MP4CopyTrack().
Note with many media encodings such as MPEG-4, AAC, and MP3, care must
be taken when choosing the edit segment start times. E.g. for video
tracks a reference or key frame should be selected as the starting
sample of any edit segment. For audio tracks, an audio sample start
time should be used.
