  • adding “chapter” markers to an mp4 file?

    Posted by Kevin Carlson on June 2, 2020 at 2:48 am


    I can’t seem to find out how to add chapter markers to an mp4 file. They come through fine in a .mov wrapper, but I can’t seem to get it compressed enough (with acceptable quality) to fit on the flash drive the clients’ customers are receiving.

    I’m happy with my mp4/h.264 file, but the chapters don’t show up in Quicktime.

    I read that some people use Subler to do this, but I can’t seem to figure out how to use it myself. I just get a poor video export, and a “Chapter 1” shows up, but that’s all, and none of them were called Chapter 1.

    Has anyone done this successfully?

    I haven’t done this, but I don’t think this is something you can do in Adobe software. I have not heard anything about Subler. I believe Handbrake only supports existing chapters, not adding them, so I’m not sure that will work. You may want to check out Drax, which hopefully does what you are looking for.
