I used mp4creator -extract to get the raw audio and video tracks from an mp4 file. What players can I use to play the raw tracks?

VLC will play most raw video and audio formats.

It worked for the audio track, but not for the video... – Pierre-Antoine LaFayette Jun 16 '10 at 17:33
What type of video is the video track? – heavyd Jun 16 '10 at 17:47
H264 Baseline@2.1, 150.250 secs, 482 kbps, 480x270 @ 29.970050 fps – Pierre-Antoine LaFayette Jun 16 '10 at 17:54
Hmm.. I use VLC to play raw H.264 video all the time. Check the messages window for any clues why its not working. Perhaps you are missing the SPS and/or PPS headers. – heavyd Jun 16 '10 at 18:50
@Pierre-Antoine LaFayette VLC often has to rely on heuristics to guess the type of raw codec in the file. Having a different file extension could completely change whether or not VLC can play the file. I suggest .h264 for your case. – Silveri Dec 4 '13 at 14:26

From, under description for its FLV Extract:

H.264 elementary streams are not widely supported by players, but you can use DGAVCDec to load them with AviSynth for editing.

...for editing or just to play – Peter.O Mar 27 '11 at 14:55
