 (Perhaps a better fault description would be "wtv muxer discards
 extradata, resulting in unplayable files")

 The test file linked here (#3474.mp4) has H264 extradata containing
 startcode information, but the WTV muxer discards codec extradata when
 using -vcodec copy. The resulting file will not play back in FFmpeg or

 Will need to investigate whether/how the WTV format actually supports the
 extradata concept. And if not, insert the startcode information as a
 packet _or_ auto apply bitstream filter.
