i'm experimenting with dash-media source extension and purejs-media source extension and i have seen i have the choice between chunked and inline fragmented videos.

My questions is what codecs are support inline fragmenting, i mean that i have only one file per resolutions and bitrate and one ore two audio files (and no billions of chunks;)) and which ffmpeg options i must use for the options:

I hope and prefer free codes like vorbis,vp8,vp8,ogg,opus and so on and hope all containers (webm) can produce one-segmented-single-files:).

what you are calling inline fragmented videos are just the chunks concatenated into one file, The manifest then records the start position and length of the chunk. The "billions of chunks" tend to be more performant on a CDN.
