MediaPress can create multiplexed, or muxed, files.  These files combine both
video and audio content into a single file.

There are a couple standard file formats for muxed files.  System muxed files
contain MPEG1 video and MPEG audio.  This is useful for web content delivery and
for use with VCD.  Program muxed files contain MPEG2 video and MPEG audio. 

You should use the proper muxed file setting for the proper MPEG video you
have encoded.  Use System muxed if your video is encoded in MPEG1 format.  Use
Program muxed if your video is encoded in MPEG2 format.

Note that there is not standard muxed format for MPEG video and PCM or AIFF audio.
All muxed files must contain MPEG audio.

You can mux already existing video and audio files with the WiredMux application
on OS9 or from within the MediaPress X software, version 1.3.  Muxing is a pretty
fast process, but is disk intensive.
