Hi, Manfred,

I'm wondering why our FFMpeg choose to use/map an encoder it doesn't
have at all?

As I know, mp4 is a wrapper, it doesn't mean its content has to be h264+aac.


So if we don't have aac at all, why don't we change the mapping to
other audio formats?

As a user, I may just want my output video has a .mp4 suffix.
