Does this help?


I think, though, that using Python to drive an already-written utility 
that understands the file format (like ffmpeg, as siggested by Ian) will 
probably be your best bet.

I was going to suggest looking into Pymedia, http://pymedia.org/ , but 
don't see anything suggesting MP4 support on 

I don't know if it's being developed any longer either.  Its last release 
was in 2005. http://sourceforge.net/projects/pymedia/
