Not able to extract chapter info from m4v file

description

Drax 1.6.5.0
Jan 21 2012 - Stable fails to extract chapter data from this m4v file Getting error msg. "Cannot read or modify Chapter" I can hit OK as many times as there are chapters. I can play the file in quicktime and see the chapter markers in the quicktime GUI. The "Information" tab populates but the "Chapters" tab does not.
 
Can be downloaded from here:
http://download.jw.org/files/media_bible/40_Mt_ASL_01.m4v
 
Other m4v files from this site work flawlessly accept for this group of sign language bible files. All other videos appear to work.

Thank you. I think this will save enormous amounts of time since I won't have to manually recreate chapter marker info for using the files on various andriod devices.

The file "40_Mt_ASL_01.m4v" seems to be broken due to an invalid atom size of track 3 (the chapter track). I suggest to forward this issue to the mp4v2 library project which manages the chapter reading.
