Outdated, doesn't works well with new versrions of mkvtoolnix, and doesn't support 64bits.

Use gMKVExtractGUI instead.

Using for extracting SRTs from MKVs. Fully functional and excellent to get rid of the command line.

could only give this average scores for "ease of use" and "functionality" as it has terrible batch processing support. i wish they continued development of mkv cleaver as that has excellent batch functionality.

i mean mkvextractgui puts a ? mark next to "batch" for crying out loud. you should be able to just select a list of files to process, pick what you want to extract, point to where you want the processed files to go and then press "start".
