I've been working on making an mp4 parser for AAC files more memory efficient for targets with very little RAM. Unfortunately, just looking at source code for various parsers its somewhat difficult for me to see how the container actually works.

I've tried google but have found surprisingly little in the way of a detailed specification. Could someone recommend one to me?

Wouldn't the original ISO/IEC 14496-12 (ISO Base Media File Format) or other standard document help you? Some of them are freely available for personal use in PDF here.

Full-quoting makes you scroll past the same junk over and over.
