Is it possible to create an MP4 in the browser?

I'm experimenting with Javascript file conversions, is it possible to create an MP4 from a series of images in the browser?

    Well, MP4 is only the video container format. Typically video inside of MP4 files is MPEG or H.264 encoded.

    That said, encoding video in the browser is certainly possible. There is a relatively mature H.264 decoder called broadway.js. It was made using emscripten by compiling the C source to JS. I'm sure the same could be done for an encoder.
