There is no format that can play on every device and browser. HTML5 is getting us closer, but there is still debate on formats and codecs.

you are only mapping the first 3 tracks. ffmpeg.exe -i ..\..\validate\20140225095504.mp4 -map 0:0 -map 0:1 -map 0:2 ... Normally it should work, but have you tried to map all 5 tracks? Also i've noticed that the metadata has changed in your output file. Original: handler_name : Video Stream Output: handler_name : VideoHandler The same for ...
