Comment (by bradskins):

 I'm trying to encoding alac in mpegts for use with HTTP Live Streaming.  A
 program called m3u8-segmenter accepts an mpegts file and segments it into
 3 seconds chunks for streaming.  There is documentation on Apple's website
 on the 'magic cookies' necessary for alac to work properly in mp4 files. I
 was hoping that they could be used with mpegts in the same way.  ALAC was
 released under an Apache Licence 2.0 at the end of October.

 Do the magic cookies and other information learned from reading the source
 give ffmpeg enough information to encode to a mpegts?  If Quicktime
 doesn't play nice with the results, I guess we can make apps for iOS and
 Android that are compatible.
