I have used MP4Box in the past to enable hinting on mp4 files in the past but it looks like its no longer in the repositories. Is there anything else that can be used or do i need to compile from source?

It's in the gpac package.

Click the red button to easily install it with the Ubuntu Software Center:

Install via the software center

Or install it with the terminal:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gpac
