Version history / Release notes / Changelog:
2015-02-28 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* Released v7.7.0.

2015-02-28 Lionel Fourquaux <lionel.fourquaux@normalesup.org>
* source code: Fixed the compilation on cygwin.

2015-02-27 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* documentation: The Dutch, Ukrainian and Chinese (Simplified) manual pages have contained only untranslated English strings since release 7.0.0. This was due to the files holding the translatable strings having being corrupted by a misbehaving tool in the build process. This has been rectified. Fixes #1134,

2015-02-25 Mats Peterson <matsp888@yahoo.com>
* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed reading all of the private codec data in AVIs from the 'strf' chunk for codecs that don't set biSize to include that data. Fixes #1129.
* mkvextract: bug fix: Fixed writing AVIs with ckSize fields that were too large. Fixes #1128.

2015-02-25 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mmg: new feature: added a button »toggle all« that enables or disables all tracks. It at least one track is currently disabled then all tracks are enabled when pressing that button. Otherwise (if all tracks are currently enabled) then they will all be disabled. Implements #1130.
* mmg: new feature: added a new checkbox »reduce to audio core« on the »format-specific options« tab that passes the new --reduce-to-core option to mkvmerge if enabled. Part of the implementation of #1107.
* mkvmerge: bug fix: fixed determining the key frame status in certain AVIs (those whose dwFlags index field has more bits set than just 0x10).
* build system: new feature: added configure options for building statically-linked binaries (--enable-static). Patches by Florent Thiéry. Implements #1119.
* mkvextract: new feature: implemented a mode for extracting cue information.

2015-02-24 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvinfo (Qt interface): bug fix: added WebM extensions to the known types in the »Open file« dialog.

2015-02-23 Mats Peterson <matsp888@yahoo.com>
* mkvextract: bug fix: Fixed writing AVIs with the wrong bit depth for video codecs that don't use 24 bits/pixel. Fixes #1123.

2015-02-23 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed recognition of E-AC3 audio tracks in MPEG transport streams if they use the type ID 0xa1 (and the same for DTS tracks stored with type ID 0xa2). Fixes #1126.
* mkvextract: bug fix: Fixed VobSubs being written to the wrong directory if the output file name given by the user didn't have an extension but one of the directories contained a dot. Fixes #1124.
* mkvpropedit, mmg's header editor: bug fix: if updating the file required creating an EBML void for a 130 bytes long gap then the void element created was one byte too short resulting in an invalid file structure. Fixes #1121.
* mkvmerge: bug fix: If the MP4 track headers for MP3 tracks contain invalid values (number of channels is 0 or the sampling rate is 0) then mkvmerge will re-derive these parameters from the MP3 bitstream instead of ignoring that track.

2015-02-18 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: bug fix: Matroska reader: track-specific tags weren't copied for tracks for which the pass-through packetizer was used (e.g. those with the codec ID A_MS/ACM) instead of a specialized one.

2015-02-14 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: enhancement: The code for determining the time codes of AAC, AC3, DTS, MP3 and TrueHD packets has been completely rewritten. This improves how timecodes are kept if the source container provides them in many cases.
* mkvmerge: removal: AAC: The hack for using the old codec IDs (e.g. A_AAC/MPEG4/LC/SBR) for AAC tracks has been removed. Those codec IDs have been deprecated for nearly ten years. Reading files that use those IDs will stay supported.
* mkvmerge: removal: TrueHD: The hack for merging a sync frame and all following normal frames into a single Matroska packet has been removed as there are no players that can play such merged frames anyway.

2015-02-12 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: new feature: Added an option »--reduce-to-core« that tells mkvmerge not to copy HD extensions for DTS tracks. Part of the implementation of #1107.
* mkvmerge: new feature: mkvmerge will now recognize TrueHD tracks inside MPEG transport streams that contain an AC3 core as consisting of two tracks. Instead of always dropping the AC3 part the user can simply select which tracks to keep. Part of the implementation of #1107.

2015-02-10 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: new feature: mkvmerge will now recognize TrueHD+AC3 files as consisting of two tracks. Instead of always dropping the AC3 part the user can simply select which tracks to keep. Part of the implementation of #1107.

I am using mkvmerge GUI for adding subtitle and creating of chapters on my movies collection. I found problem that after muxing fast forward functionality of mkv files disturbed. I played that file with vlc 2.0.5. It take much time in chapter skipping. And on the my SONY BDP-S380 its does not fast forward. I have not changed anything except subtitle adding on files. Before adding subtitle its work fine on my sony palyer and on vlc also. I need to fix this problem. I believe there is some problem with tool. Kindly check on it

Excellent program that I have been using weekly for nearly 12 months. Mostly embedding SRT subs within MKV files and/or loading in other file formats to repackage in MKV container. For the newbie the ease of use is probably down near 3 so the assistance of someone who does know how to use could be a help. I didn't have that luxury so I simply experimented trying all the functions to see what would happen. It often amuses me when I see questions like "will this fix ...etc" Well my reaction is "just do it and find out for yourself"

Great program Please don't post complaints or questions here. If you have problems and can't find an answer in the forums here then go to the 'Visit developer's site link" above.
will take you to this
15 Dec 2012: Closed the forum again and moved the "FAQ over to trac." (link)
Follow the link and search MKVToolNix bug tracker and FAQ.

The development team is very active and many bugs are fixed and versions are updated every 2 or months. (NOTE: I am just a user and not a member of the development team).

Header Stripping should be disabled by default in the next release. It would make it a lot easier for those having issues. The software works 100%. You just need to know what you are doing. Excellent work to the developers!

For those people who've left comments complaining about later versions of MKVMergeGUI creating MKVs which won't play on standalone devices, 99.99% of the time it's due to header removal compression. This feature is part of the MKV spec but it's not supported by many/most standalone devices. The solution is to go into MKVMergeGUI's options and to check "disable header removal compression for audio and video tracks by default". Once that's done MKVMergeGUI should once again create MKVs which will play on standalone devices.

Why header removal compression is enabled by default I don't know. It's probably the number one reason for "MKVs created by MKVMergeGUI won't play using my device" threads being started in forums. If not, it's maybe the only reason.

For those wishing to extract streams from MKV files, MKVCleaver is a nice companion tool to MKVMergeGUI.

This is now working on EVERY FILE I try it with. I need to remove DTS or HD audio from files and replace with AC3 for my Samsung HDTV.
This is so simple a kid could use it.

None of the files output from version 4.0.0 onwards will play in any of my devices (Blu-ray player, multi-media TV, DVB box). I either get a file format not supported error or it will cause the device to freeze and then go in to standby. Newer versions (from around 5.0.0) also for some reason incorrectly save the files as using variable frame rate mode when they are in fact constant. Earlier versions do not do this. I don't know which changes made are to blame, but files from 4.0.0 up just aren't as compatible as from versions before this. My scores therefore are for version 3.4.0 and earlier.

Files muxed with v5.3.0 does not work in XBMC.
If I mux them in an earlier version, it works.

Anyone else experienced this?

Indeed, the problem is in your subs. I suggest Subtitle Edit. From the Tools tab you select Fix Common Errors. Check all the stuff you wish to fix. One option is to fix subs appearing on more than two lines.

If you are using Media Player Classic/ Home Cinema you can override the placement of subs
(Options->Subtitles->Default Style)

MKVtoolnix has got nothing to do with position of subtitles as far as I know.
If you have problems with subtitles, they are in the subtitles themselves.

Great tool one small annoying problem is that subtitles appear to be restricted to the middle third of the screen and break over 3 to 4 lines. Cannot see how you can change this.

Confirming the issue mkvextractgui fails with mkvtoolnix v5.2.1 but works splendid with 5.2.0.
Extracts different tracks than selected, or gives error and doesnt extract anything, or extracts but doesnt create any file.

Version 5.2.0 breaks MKVcleaver (it's extracting wrong tracks). Went back to 5.1.0 and all's fine. Great tool though.

I used This version 3.3.0 because, I can play the movie in my DVD via USB. all version above this until you reach 4.8.0 does not work on my Philips DVD and My Philips can not read it. and easily, Just the DVD hangup when I put the USB in and try to play file. except for version 3.3.0, all files are playing very smoothly,

Making chapter inside Matrsoka files, really something great, But I wonder is there any way to import chapter into MKV from DVD.

About the tools itself, It is really great...

Thanks people

It did what I needed it to do, which was to make corrections to language from 'Undefined' to 'English', and also remove the "Created with AutoMKV 0.98.4 etc, etc...". Looks like it can add chapters too.

I had a difficult time figuring out why it would not play on my Sony BluRay player (BDP-BX37). Turns out I had to turn off header compression (fixed globally under "File>Options>Disable header removal compression for audio and video tracks by default".

I would like to see more through documentation.

Excellent tool for splitting/merging/redoing audio for MKV/H264/mp4 files...

Dunno why the latest version 4.9.1 wouldn't "append" files, all previous versions 4.80./4.9.0 have no problems appending files after splitting.

Version 4.9.1 fixes the freezing problem on opening files.
An essential tool for muxing mkv.

For those who have problems with their mkvs playing on commercial players, turn header compression off. Click on the audio / video stream, Then below click on the tab "Extra Options". On "Compression" select none.
