muxer Pronunciation

muxer Description

A muxer is an engine or machine which will combine things such as signals in telecommunications. In media terminology a muxer will combine media assets - subtitles, audio and videos - into a single output resulting in containers such as a mp4, mpg, avi, mkv. Depending on the output you have chosen you may have additional options, such as adding multiple subtitle tracks (to support multiple languages), video tracks (extra footage such as “the making of” footage) or audio tracks (such as an added track for directors commentary).
