    When the converting process is finished, there are two separate files, audio and video. How can I merge these two files into one?

    Setting: Manual
    Video: Pass Thru
    Audio: Pass Thru
    Edit tracks tab: Tried both Extract Tracks and Add Tracks options but the result are the same.

    It always leaves the elementary streams intact, even after remuxing, but there should be a muxed .m4v or .mp4 too. If you watch the log, does it mention muxing at all?

    MP4tools first processes individual tracks and then muxes them together to create an MP4 (or M4V) video. If there is no MP4 video when done, then some error occurred somewhere in the process. Among the temporary files created by MP4tools are ".log" files for each of the various processes that were completed. Look in those for a hint at the error. If you were passing thru DTS audio for example, MP4tools would extract it, but DTS audio can't be muxed into an MP4 file, so no MP4 video would be created. The first place to start would be the muxing log file.

    BTW, you can turn of the creation of these temporary files in the preferences. It can get a bit messy.

    MP4Tools to support DTS in MP4?

    I have read that the MP4 spec has been updated to include DTS as well. Any plans to add this to MP4Tools? Would be really nice to be able to include DTS sound in movies for playback on the AppleTV. Have been using a PS3 so far but it doesn't support soft subs.
