MKVToolNix is a set of tools to create, alter, split, join and inspect Matroska files(mkv). With these tools one can get information about (mkvinfo) Matroska files, extract tracks/data from (mkvextract) Matroska files and create (mkvmerge) Matroska files from other media files. Matroska is a multimedia file format aiming to become THE new container format for the future. Use MKVCleaver or gMKVExtractGUI to extract/demultiplex mkv video and audio files.

Version history / Release notes / Changelog


# Version 15.0.0 "Duel with the Devil" 2017-08-19

## Important notes

* mkvmerge, mkvpropedit, GUI's header and chapter editors: the programs will no longer add most missing Matroska elements that are mandatory but have a default value in the Matroska specification (e.g. the `TagLanguage` element with a value of `und` if it isn't present in its `SimpleTag` parent). Due to this change libEBML v1.3.5 is now required.

## New features and enhancements

* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplex tool: added a new entry to the "source files" context menu labeled "Set destination file name from selected file's name". It will force the GUI to consider the selected file to be the reference for automatically setting the file name, no matter which file was originally added as the first file. It will also force setting the destination file name once if automatic destination file name generation is turned off in the preferences. Implements part of #2058.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplex tool: added an option in the preferences on "Multiplexer" ? "Output" labeled "Only use the first source file that contains a video track". If enabled, only source files containing video tracks will be used for setting the destination file name. Other files that are added are ignore. Implements the rest of #2058.
* MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: added support for editing the video colour attributes. Implements the second half of #2038.
* MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: added support for the "video projection" track header attributes. Part of the implementation of #2064.
* MKVToolNix GUI: job queue: selected jobs can now be move up and down by pressing the `Ctrl+Up` and `Ctrl+Down` keys. Additionally, push buttons to move them up & down are shown if the corresponding option is enabled in the preferences. Implements #2060.
* mkvmerge: added support for the "video projection" track header attributes. Part of the implementation of #2064.
* mkvinfo: added support for the "video projection" track header attributes. Part of the implementation of #2064.
* mkvpropedit: added support for editing the video colour attributes. Implements one half of #2038.
* mkvpropedit: added support for the "video projection" track header attributes. Part of the implementation of #2064.

## Bug fixes

* all: selecting the program's language (e.g. via the `--ui-language` command-line option or via the GUI's preferences) did not work on Linux & Unix if the `LANGUAGE` environment variable was set and didn't include the desired language. Fixes #2070.
* MKVToolNix GUI: removed the keyboard shortcuts for switching between the different tools (e.g. `Ctrl+Alt+1` for the multiplexer). They overlapped with basic functionality on keyboards that use an `AltGr` key, e.g. German ones, where `AltGr+7` emits `{`. As `AltGr+key` is implemented as `Ctrl+Alt+key` under the hood, this means that `AltGr+7` is really `Ctrl+Alt+7` which the GUI now took to mean "switch to the job queue" instead of "insert `{`". Fixes #2056.
* MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: after saving the file the GUI wasn't updating its internal file modification timestamp. That lead to the GUI wrongfully claiming that the file had been modified externally when the user wanted to save the file once more, requiring a reload of the file losing all modifications made since saving the first time.
* mkvmerge: DTS handling: some source files provide timestamps for audio tracks only once every `n` audio frames. In such situations mkvmerge was buffering too much data resulting in a single gap in the timestamps of one frame duration after frame number `n - 1` (the second audio timestamp read from the source file was used one output frame too early). Fixes #2071.
* mkvinfo: fixed a null pointer dereference if an `EbmlBinary` element's data pointer is a null pointer. Fixes #2072.

## Build system changes

* configure: added option `--disable-update-check`. If given, the code checking online for available updates will be disabled. The update check is enabled and included in the GUI by default.
* libEBML v1.3.5 is now required.

## Other changes

* mkvmerge: the option `--colour-matrix` has been renamed to `--colour-matrix-coefficients` in order to match the specification more closely. The old option name will continue to be recognized as well.

I can't fault this excellent software or its generous, continuous development. I also use it in XP, but you must use version 10 which if memory serves is the last version to work in XP. Added benefits of mkv toolnix are if you have an audio synch issue in a mp4/h264 file and cannot work out the delay, then just put it through mkvtoolnix and it automatically finds the delay e.g -11ms,-83ms(check in media info later) etc.

I always like to extract the audio with Yamb(portable version only)first to find the volume level/clipping using mp3gain with aacgain exe renamed to mp3.exe and placed in the folder of mp3 gain. I then normalize the extracted aac fileif necessary. Then I remux and place in mkv container, if the audio was skewed or if I want to add an srt for foreign parts etc.

Sem sombra de dúvidas o melhor editor e criador de contêiner "MKV" até o momento. Apesar de ter uma interface simples para os que já estão acostumados a editar esse formato de contêiner, o MKVToolNix realiza quase todas as funções necessárias para a edição e criação do mesmo.

mkvtoolnix 8.3. was the last version with the cool, inovative and easy to use mkvmerge gui. Since they removed the mkvmergegui (begining with version 8.4) from instalation mkvtoolnix is practicaly useless. It's a shame indeed, FaeGiN user is perfectly right. New users should try mkvtoolnix 8.3 version as well then they'll understand the huge difference. Cheers,
mkvonly (alias HighCode)

I have enjoyed using this for years. Until i recently downloaded the more recent versions and found the tool i used the most, mmg.exe is no longer included! The developer seems to have dropped the most used tool from this package, with, i suppose, a view to forcing us onto the less intuitive gui .
No thanks. I decided to uninstall and go back to version 8.20 which works very well and had the old, intuitive and great interface and features.
Shame.

@Ally68
Mediainfo supports since v0.7.80 the statistic tags of Mkvmerge, it uses them for more precise bitrate calculation per track and now the tags aren't showed in the general section anymore (I didn't like those capital letter tags too). So you don't need to add a commandline option to remove them. The statistic tags are important for Mediainfo to calculate the bitrate of each track, if all tracks in the file have variable bitrate. Without the statistic tags Mediainfo doesn't show the bitrate per track, it shows just the overall bitrate. Also Mediainfo didn't show bitrate per track in a MKV file with combination of AVC and AAC at cbr, but now due to statistic tags it does.

And in this 'permanent comment section' I wrote all my votes about this software... 10-10-10-10
Then, I'm not interested between the new or the old GUI; thanks to the developer for any improvements and if he wants change GUI I'll simply get use to it.
Only asked about a setting that maybe I didn't find. However, I referred to these little windows that appear when mouse passes over an item: http://postimg.org/image/han6cu55d/

***For Ally68***

You can disable the generation by passing mkvmerge the option --disable-track-statistics-tags. In mmg you can add that option via the Muxing → Add command line options dialog.

Note that if you re-mux a file containing these tags then you have to disable reading tags fromt the source file in addition to disabling the generation of new statistics tags with --disable-track-statistics-tags

Sorry to disagree ndjamena, but when "something that's new and not even remotely finished yet"
shouldn't be forcefully implemented. I'm still using 7.90, because my muxing needs are very simple
and the new Gui design, at least for me, extremely complicated.

This isn't a forum thread, it's a permanent comments section for the software. It's bad enough that you people feel the need to bash something that's new and not even remotely finished yet before you've even really given it a chance, but you have to do it HERE as well, if you have problems, make a thread on a proper forum and get your facts straight before you start bashing a work in progress without even really trying to understand why things are going way they are.

I assume the attachments are added with the tracks so you know they're there without having to search the tabs. It does seem like a silly way of going about it, but it's early days and I guess it will be fixed at some point.

MMG was terrible with keyboard navigation, MKVToolNixGUI is set to repair that. Shifting the focus willy nilly destroys any possibility of decent navigation via keyboard. Mosu will have to come up with a better way of doing business, hopefully by allowing navigating tracks via keyboard somehow while within the properties section.

You can turn most of the warnings off in preferences, they're an OPTION to prevent loss of information and to clarify what the user intends.

Why even ask why anyone would want multiple tabs? Because you don't use it in the particular usage pattern you tend to find yourself in? I'll agree that not being able to replace a job with a new one efficiently is a problem that needs to be looked at, but questioning multiple tabs is just being obtuse.

MMG was never perfect, it was aging and was extremely limited. The new GUI is being designed to break those limits, it's an improvement and with improvement comes change. I'm kind of annoyed that the new GUI has keep the same Header Editor layout as MMG, THAT is one of the things I wanted to see changed by having all the properties on a single page.

Unless you have only a singe track in the file the tags aren't duplicating information. Once you get a second stream in a file it is impossible to know the length of any single track without parsing the entire file and therefore impossible to know the bitrate or the number of frames. Any program that's been giving out info about files without the tags and without going through every single bit in the file has just been guessing the contents of the file up to now. The developer of MediaInfo has been well aware of that since day one, he has had to deal with all the complaints when people realise MediaInfo gives out the wrong information so he's one of the biggest champions of the tags. If you have an MKV with only a single variable bitrate track amongst it's constant bitrate brethren and constant frame rate video the information MediaInfo gives out will be CLOSE ENOUGH that the inaccuracies won't matter, but wrong is wrong and when you come across a file that's not as clean cut MediaInfo output becomes worse than useless. _STATISTICS_WRITING_APP and _STATISTICS_WRITING_DATE_UTC aren't there to provide information to the user, they're there to make sure the tags belong to the actual file they're found in, they're security in case someone remuxes a file with a program that simply copies the statistics tags blindly. They have nothing to do with anything, and if anything simply signify how badly the Matroska specs were originally planned out.

The software is pretty solid. BUT, I do not like the "Tags" feature that was started in v7.0.0!

Because of this feature I still use v6.9.1 - The developers need to add the option to remove those stupid tags which basically double post the same information in the file. (hint)

To the last post,,who said anything about my refusal or willingness to learn new programs..I said the new GUI sucks and it does (in my opinion) and I totally agree with post #96 on some of the issues mkvtoolnix has..Neverless I still use the newest version daily..Maybe you should try reading it you idiot before you decide to insult anybody..

The new GUI is actually great. It's easiser to use and well organized than the old GUI. To people who refuse to accept and learn new things: You can just stop using it and leave the improvement for others.

I completely agree with comments from the previous post..I dont use this program as much as he does but I do use it occasionally and have been for many years and I totally miss the old GUI..This is a great program for what it does and its free and I am thankful for that but now it is a bloated mess to use and not user friendly at all..I am all for improvements and updates but if people are use to doing things a certain way and it works then why cant you just leave that part of it alone..

mkvtoolnix-gui is a train wreck. mmg separates elements into different tabs, which keeps things organised and clear, but mkvtoolnix-gui dumps everything into a single window, so you end up with subtitle tracks mixed in with 50 fonts and other tracks. This considerably increases the chance of making a mistake when you're remuxing files with a lot of tracks or attachments.

In mmg clicking on a subtitle track actives the "Track name" box so you can immediately type the name and quickly tab through the other boxes setting the parameters. In mkvtoolnix-gui you have to manually click to activate the Track name box.

The regular popup messageboxes in mkvtoolnix-gui like "Do you really want to close it?" are annoying and get in the way of getting things done. Everything now takes more clicks than in mmg.

Having the properties on the right instead of at the bottom makes the window much wider, which leaves less space for your file manager window when dragging files in. It also makes the properties feel cramped.

Having tabs for multiple open jobs is stupid. How I work is to do one file, add it to the queue, Ctrl+N, do the next file, add it to the queue, Ctrl+N, and so on. In mkvtoolnix-gui this leads to you having a tab open for every job, which is more likely to lead to confusion and mistakes, while adding nothing of value. To keep things organised you have to close each tab after adding the job to the queue, which adds yet more extra clicks compared to mmg.

Why would anyone want multiple jobs open in multiple tabs anyway? Does he think people like to start one job, set a few properties, start another job, set a few properties there, then go back to the first job and do a bit more there? I suspect most people work the same way as I do, doing one file, adding it to the queue and doing the next. With that approach there is simply no reason to have multiple jobs open in multiple tabs.

I remux about eight files per day, which was no trouble with mmg, but with mkvtoolnix-gui it's an incredibly annoying and laborious process. I've tried to like it, but ultimately mkvtoolnix-gui is a design disaster and is simply not worth using.

I ultimately ended up going back to 8.3.0 and will continue to use mmg until it stops working. After that I'll put the subtitles and fonts in a separate Subtitle and Fonts directory so they're loaded by the player without having to be muxed in.

mkvtoolnix was a great piece of software, but now it's worthless.

This is a great set of tools, handling all sorts of files for my favourite container, Matroska.
But, I really needed a way to process multiple files, and setting up each individual file with virtually identical settings began to wear on me.
So...
I wrote a batch program which will process a *lot* of files at one go. I call it MKVBatch, available on this site. Makes my life a lot simpler.
A profound Thank You to Moritz Bunkus for MKVToolnix.

Fanboy damage control aside, I stand by my earlier statement. This program is quite tedious and time-consuming when processing multiple files. The job queue 'isn't the best' because there is no job queue function to begin with. This is not a minor drawback in today's day & age.

No other program does what this does. This is the way to multiplex mkv PERIOD. Despite some minor drawbacks (e.g. the job queue isn't the best) it always does a good job, never crashes, constant development. Kudos for this remarkable tool.

This program lacks a batch file function. Many of today's encoders have the capability of putting multiple .mkv or .avi files into a que list for processing. If one has say 15 - 20 video files from a series, it gets quite tedious ticking and un-ticking boxes, doing each file one at a time. Pretty lacking by today's standards.

I had no problems as usual installing MkvToonix 7.6.0..I ran Malwarebytes malware scans on the package as well as the install and everything cam up clean and the program works fine.I have been using it since it came out on the 8th..The problem is Avast and thats why I opted for a different anti virus years ago..Good Luck..;)~

Me too.I couldn't download the latest release (mkvtoolnix 7.6.0). Avast blocks the download and says it's infected with "Win32:Evo-gen [Susp]". Version 7.5.0 works fine.

MKVToolnix is a great tool, but not without flaws.

To begin with it would be appreciated that ANSI subtitle files would be auto-converted to UTF-8 on some languages, otherwise some characters won't show fine.

There are some issues when muxing with contained files, like say, a h264 stream and a mp4 contained AAC stream. In this situation it's possible the audio won't play in your output file.

I would also had like for some time now that you could choose what pieces to keep when splitting a file, avoiding to write to disk the whole video.

Normally when muxing out a file you will encounter some errors in the log window. Sometimes without describing exactly the reason, nor allowing you to find it somewhere else on the net, leaving you wondering.

Finally in recent versions, probably since 7.0.0, MKVToolNix takes almost double the time for the remux (ie 6 minutes instead of 3). This was voiced in its support thread but nobody replied back. My system is a standard recent one 4670K, 8Gb 1600, 750 Ti on Win7x64 SP1, so this is something that should affect generally and a serious regression in my humble opinion.

This is hands-down the BEST video editing software in the market, period !! I have been using mkvtollnix since version 7.1.0, converted many of my Blu-ray to MKV files from various formats (DTS HDMA, TrueHD, m2ts, ts, etc.), as well as adding additional audio/subtitle tracks to a movie, it is extremely reliable and very simple to use. I also use tsMuxeR, but my experience is that txMuxeR is less reliable, it actually failed on me on multiple occations. Since version 7.2.0, mkvtoolnix added support for "play-list" (.mpls) files - this is freaking awesome, it is very helpful if you want to convert the "seamless branching" Blu-rays, mkvtoolnix will read the Blu-ray structure for you, and you no longer need to add each A/V file individually to the main page in order to piece them together for the whole movie.

Easy to use tool for multiplexing Matroska streams with a Windows native GUI. Flexible, logically organized, and supports almost all source formats well. De facto standard.

The existance of this GUI program is a major reason for the success of MKV. Creating files this format is so much easier and overall more reliable than working with AVIs or MPEG Programs, let alone MP4s. Last time I checked, MkvToolNix did not have a tag editor. And it is not a coincidence that very few other programs can display tags, and nearly no releases are actually tagged. (It is possible to use a recent version of foobar2000 for fast, customizable tagging.)

During its development, the author has made a number significant changes to the format of files written by MkvToolNix, such as the format of MPEG sequence headers, stream header compression, and presence of a seek element, which might not be immediately apparent. Some of these changes had since been reverted. I would excercise caution before upgrading to a new version, thoroughly read the changelog and test that the output files are working on all devices and players they are intended to work, and that no unexpected artifacts appear and seeking works.

great tool, but I don't like the lack of .wmv support. Also, some videos are stuck in permanent pause mode. The video is all there, but it stays frozen. Advancing it by seeking brings you to wherever you want, but still no movement. Splitting by timecode is a great idea, but the program seems to split on keyframes rather than where you tell it. Many videos can only be split at 10 second intervals regardless of what timecode you enter

Great job switching to 64bits (at least for me it is), but it has a few bugs: if you had installed a previous version (I had v6.7.0 x32) it was (default) installed on a 64bits machine in C:\Program Files (x86)\MKVToolNix, but v6.8.0 x64 (also default) installs in C:\Program Files\MKVToolNix; so at first use MKVExtractGUI2 (which I use as GUI) doesn't seem to find the MKVToolNix executables, searching for the older path, and also demanding to be copied in the same directory as MKVToolNix (although is was copied in the new installed location). The only solution (that I've found) was to manually modify all the entries from the registry (C:\Program Files\MKVToolNix instead of C:\Program Files (x86)\MKVToolNix) and also modifying the Privilege Level of MKVExtractGUI2 (from file's Proprieties->Compatibility Tab->Privilege Level) to "Run this program as an administrator". From here, all seems to be back on the track...

Re: Post #12 by hello_hello - turning on "disable header removal compression for audio and video tracks by default" to fix files not playing on hardware players muxed with newer versions.

That was one of the first things I tried, right from the first version to implement it, but it has never made any difference. All files muxed with versions 4.0.0 and up will not play on any of my devices whether this setting is on or off. So something else is at fault. I've stayed with version 3.0.0 and have no problems.

First off: Its a great tool.-@ Post #2 by b8375629: Really? So, you cant download it from some site [which has nothing to do with the tool or its developer,besides, others obviously could)- and thats why you rate it down? SAY,HOW OLD ARE YOU? -
Anyway, I use this tool frequently, for years now. Never had any issue, everythings just fine.
While its steadily updated, its extremely versatile, as you can throw AVI, FLV, MP4 at it, set time delay, edit chapters, join MKVs etc. I use it mainly to dump unwanted audio-streams and for adding subs, at times for sync audiotracks. Its one small piece of essential, free software, it works like a charm and Im really thankfull M.Bunkus provided it. BTW if it wasnt for putting down one guys great work, it would be sort of amusing some comments I read.
GO LEARN INSTEAD OF BABYCRY, and BE THANKFULL, for its PROVIDED FOR FREE and ITS GREAT! ;)

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"

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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

Checking the latest version on Virus Total it comes up with 1 out of 42 by some no name unknown antivirus software, and also as stated, i don't think i would trust mcafee to screen my coffee, Zone Alarm, well...

It has not caused 1 single problem on my 2 systems and has been a great asset!!

mostin5000 doesn't know how to use antivirus or antimalware software. This software contains none. It is open source and Mosu is a frequent poster on doom9's forums, where he provides excellent support and assistance to users for free. "Shutdowner" is a generic label applied any software that has the ability to shut down Windows - mkvtoolnix bundles this options so users doing long muxing tasks can leave their PCs unattended and not waste power. McAfee and ZoneAlarm are bloated and poorly, ineffectual, written to a laughable extent - UNLIKE mkvtoolnix, which is an excellent utility and the application of choice for muxing Matroska files on any platform.

@hbx2006: MediaInfo changed, in fact it was fixed to follow the matroska specs (google search).
As for the subtitles, RTFM, format specific options-->Charset.
As for your mkv's not playing, RTFM, extra options for the audio stream-->compression none.
Hint: File-->Options: Disable header removal compression will make this option permanent for future usage.

And this is not place for this stuff, as the comments form says, use the forum ;)

If makers of MKVtoolnix (GUI) are reading this:
When muxing i.e. h264+ac3+srt, then at each input file one can (should) also specify Language. The problem is, if I specify i.e. English language for video and audio stream, this setting somehow isn't written into final mkv file (however, language setting for srt file is written). I've checked this with MediaInfo, after my TV (LG LE8500) refused to play mkv files, which were created with MKVtoolnix v4.30, directly via USB.
Then I've downloaded older MKVtoolnix v3.40, remuxed the same way (as previously with v4.30) and this time Language tags are written into final mkv file -and my TV plays such file without a problem.
I've read somewhere, one should disable compression for versions 4.00 and above. I did that, but didn't help -so this wasn't the problem.
I assume, v4.40 has the same problem, but I can't confirm that (I've removed v4.40 and replaced with v4.30, before doing research).
Btw. I've also noticed, that mkv file muxed with older v3.40 is a tinny bit larger (about 500kb) than file comming from newer v4.30 -but it works.

A wish: I'd like to try something out (related to my TV's subtitle support)... Question: Is it somehow possible to mux srt file into mkv in ANSI instead being automatically encoded in UTF8?

This program worked well in version 4.0. However, in the current version I've been using (4.4.0), my mkv video files work fine on the computer, however they will not stream to my t.v. via the ps3, via ps3mediaserver. It keeps saying "data is corrupted". I've noticed by some other comments that wdlive does not stream these properly either. I guess it must be something about streaming these files. I don't know what wdlive uses to stream...maybe it's an incompatibility with Mencoder or TSmuxer (which ps3mediaserver uses). I guess I will revert to an older version. Pity, as I just muxed a ton of files that I will have to remux ):

Hello.
On my system, MKVMerge v4.2.0 and 4.3.0 (both installer and stand-alone) give some error during elaboration with, for example The Film Machine, AviDemux about audio. I cannot explain right the problem because I'm Italian, but with v4.0.0 and previous releases all works fine.
I hope these mistakes are resolving in the next future.
Thank you for interesting :)

All version 4.x did not work well for me so back to version 3.4.0 and it's fine.


Sep 11, 2010 Version: 4.3.0 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 5/10



With the 2 latest versions, I couldn't mux external .ass subs on mkv for some reason. So I went back to version 3.4.0. and everything is fine!

I don't know if the latest versions include settings that must be determined by the user to do things, I just know that with version 3.4.0 I do my job down with a couple of clicks. So I stick with that version.

Latest ain't always better.

I can´t use the program with my dvd player LG BD390 any longer wont play the files.
So i have to find another tool. Use to be the best sucks now.

Same issue with the inbuilt mediaplayer in LG TV (LG 42LD550):
Files muxed with version 4.0 plays fine. Files muxed with version 4.1 or later are unplayable.



Sep 9, 2010 Version: 4.3.0 OS: MacOSX Ease of use: 7/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value for money: 9/10 Overall: 7/10



Concur with MrBass. Reinstalled 4.3.0 and selected compression=none option for DTS file. Did not select any other Extra Options. Resulting MKV file will not play on my WD TV Live Media Player -- no video or audio. Had to manually reset the box to get it to play other files that were muxed with 4.0.0 or prior versions. Appears MKVtoolnix is on a development path that WDTV Live Media Players can't follow unless WD introduces a firmware change.


Sep 8, 2010 Version: 4.3.0 OS: Vista Ease of use: 7/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value for money: 7/10 Overall: 7/10



Confirming earlier post that versions of MKVtoolnix beyond 4.0.0 are not compatible with the WD TV Live Media Player. DTS files merged into MKV container using later releases are not playable. Release descriptions do not make this clear. Wasted many hours of troubleshooting before finding 7 September comment that identified compression action by newer releases as the culprit.


Sep 7, 2010 Version: 4.0.0 OS: Vista Ease of use: 5/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value for money: 7/10 Overall: 5/10



Absolutely ridiculous direction this is heading. Look at the changelog of header compression bugs. Anyone with a WDTV Live player steer clear of any new releases and just remux with 4.0.0 (last one with no compression on by default). 4.1.0 was decent but 4.2.0 and 4.3.0 is nothing but massive headaches for WDTV Live players even after setting audio track to compression = none. Author says hell no he'll change it nor even offer a default preference to have it turned off. At this point even a firmware update won't fix this mess that's been created. Reminds me of hackers who refused to use terms for 'copy' and 'paste' cuz technically they aren't correct. Well that Linux GUI died cuz they were pure thick headed thugs.

This is really the best tool for creating and modifying matroska files.

Should anyone experience problems, read the FAQs. If it's bug file a bug report. The audio problem some users experience is not a fault of mkvmerge. File a bug report for the player that is handling the matroska files.

I gave 9/10 for function... there is always something to improve.



Aug 1, 2010 Version: 4.2.0 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



There seems to be a bug in mkvmerge. I used it to remove subtitles for a conversion with Mediacoder PSP Edition x64 and the audio became corrupt. Reverted to 2.9.8 and problem disappeared.


Jul 31, 2010 Version: 4.2.0 OS: Vista 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 3/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 3/10



It´s great...
The only problem is when I want to convert old .avi files to .mkv
The .avi contains xvid and mp3 amd its the video that is the problem.
The video gets corrupted. It plays fine in VLC but not in my media player.
If I import the created .mkv in avidemux2 I can easily see the fault.

The problem is solved by using version 3.4.0

otherwise its a great tool

stars...

Thanks for the tip! I'll give that a try.

http://www.matroska.org/news/compressed-headers.html

Reason you don't get sound on your wdtv live is your DTS or AC3 track is using Header Compression when mixing. To solve this:
- Click on audio track in mkvmerge
- choose Extra Options
- choose None for Compression
- voilà remux

Great tool!! I have had a problem with mkvmerge and ac3 audio on my wdtv live with ver 4.1.1, but I reverted back to ver 4.0.0 and it seems to have fixed it.

Nice Tool,just Awesome!

Perfect match with MKVCleaver and MKVExtractGUI.
Thanks for the updates.

Keep up good works!
:)

MeGui always muxes my 720x480 16:9 in 4:3 for some reason. MKVtoolnix is able to mux 720x480 16:9 for me.

Awesome little program with an easy to use GUI!

Need to remove subtitle or audio tracks from an .mkv file? This tool does it easily, very quickly and without error. With all the junk utilities out there today, it's great to find a first-class one like this!

* mkvextract: new feature: Added support for extracting Blu-Ray subtitles (CodecID "S_HDMV/PGS").

Sweet this is awesome as now can extract PGS subs from bluray .mkv rips created with makemkv. Gotta wait though for Mac OS X version hopefully coming out soon.

The latest version will not open in Mac OSX 10.5.8. Sticking with 2.3.0 for now. Great program though.

I manly us this to add English subs to Japanese TV shows and anime files. So much better than having to rencode the file.

I love this tool, I use it to remove unwanted Audio and Subtitle Tracks from videos all of the time :)!

I also sometimes use it to join split videos, but that rarely ever happens, since I always look for non-split videos.

Fantastic.
Joined two 4.5GB mkv files together seamlessly (no stutterers/chirps) in just over 6 minutes.
Brilliant.

by far the best set of tools for MKV container extraction/rebuilding. Very simple and straight forward. The only downside is it doesn't include MKVExtractGUI


Mar 3, 2009 Version: 2.5.1 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



This thing just works! File after file. No bloopers. Blazing fast (2-3 minutes for a typical 4.5 BDRip). I'm using it to strip/add tracks from MKV files.


Jan 8, 2009 Version: 2.4.1 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



THe mkv extract works just great~! I can extract my mkv files into video, audio, and subtitles files for editting. It works really fast too. No long waiting time. Although doing batch file processing it's a bit more complicated since you need to create a .bat file and etc. but overall it's a great tool~! I like it~!
