Does anyone know of a good software encoder capable of encoding a captured video in MPEG4 format


User data can be added into the encoded stream. ie the MPEG4 output will contain user data inside.

Why dont you use some ordinary software like Ulead Cool Video maker or Movie Maker to add text or styles to your captured video then create a MPEG file then convert it into a MPEG4 file. What you ultimately need as far as i understood is a MPEG4 file so why need a software convert.

embed KLV data

I am actually looking to embed KLV data(private data) within the captured video stream and encode it as a MPEG4 format (preferbly). MPEG2 format is maybe ok too.

I do not want any text to appear on the played video. The KLV data has to be embedded within the frames (hidden) and retrievable at the receiver side.
