MPEG2-TS to fMP4 Transmuxer

Feed in Uint8Arrays of an MPEG-2 transport stream, get out a fragmented MP4:

// create a transmuxer:
var transmuxer = new muxjs.mp4.Transmuxer(initOptions);
// data events signal a new fMP4 segment is ready:
transmuxer.on('data', function (segment) {
  // Tada! Now you have an MP4 that you could use with Media Source Extensions
  sourceBuffer.appendBuffer(segment.data.buffer);
});

Metadata

The transmuxer can also parse out supplementary video data like timed ID3 metadata and CEA-608 captions. You can find both attached to the data event object:

transmuxer.on('data', function (segment) {
  // create a metadata text track cue for each ID3 frame:
  segment.metadata.frames.forEach(function(frame) {
    metadataTextTrack.addCue(new VTTCue(time, time, frame.value));
  });
  // create a VTTCue for all the parsed CEA-608 captions:
  segment.captions.forEach(function(cue) {
    captionTextTrack.addCue(new VTTCue(cue.startTime, cue.endTime, cue.text));
  });
});

MP4 Inspector

Parse MP4s into javascript objects or a text representation for display or debugging:

// drop in a Uint8Array of an MP4:
var parsed = muxjs.mp4.tools.inspect(bytes);
// dig into the boxes:
console.log('The major brand of the first box:', parsed[0].majorBrand);
// print out the structure of the MP4:
document.body.appendChild(document.createTextNode(muxjs.textifyMp4(parsed)));

The MP4 inspector is used extensively as a debugging tool for the transmuxer. You can see it in action by cloning the project and opening the debug page in your browser.
