Default quick MOV/AVI to MP4 tricks

Most people are recoding their videos to Mpeg-4, but there are a couple of case where you just need to repackage to MP4.

Apple has released movie trailers as mpeg-4 in MOV for a year or so. If you have the low-res version, you can use:
mp4box -add -new "Star Trek (3).mp4"
MP4 allows for MP3 audio, so for low res xvid/divx use:
mp4box -add Watchmen.avi -new Watchmen.mp4
Mp4box is cross-platform command utility. You can use mp4box -info instead of mediainfo to detail audio/video details. I only know of the Windows EXE.

Many MKV files are AVC+MP3, but mp4box does not handle them.
