Mkvmerge Command Line Example

Posted onby

The same command line options are used in the same order (with the notable exception of -output ). Using other versions of mkvmerge (1) or other command-line options may result in the same byte-identical file but is not guaranteed to do so.debug topic: Turn on debugging for a specific feature. Please add custom command line option for example I want to correct accept ratio to 4/3 on all videos by adding '-aspect-ratio' '0:4/3' Last edited by romaturok; 14th May 2015 at 23:58. The command line is expected to be taken from mkvtoolnix-gui: Multiplexer-Show command line. Mkvmerge and mkvtoolnix-gui are part of the MKVToolNix set of tools to work with Matroska media container files. Works with Windows (cmd.exe) or Linux/unix shells (bash, zsh, etc.) Installation.

Hey everyone.

It’s time for MKVToolNix v21.0.0. The biggest change is that mkvinfo’s GUI portion has been removed. Its functionality is now incorporated into MKVToolNix GUI. I am aware that the functionatliy isn’t on par yet, but it will be in time for release v22.0.0.

Mkvmerge Gui Download Free

You can download the source code or one of the binaries. The Windows and macOS binaries are available already. The Linux binaries are stil being built and will be available of the course of the next couple of hours.

Here are the NEWS since the previous release:

New features and enhancements

Mkvmerge cli

Mkvmerge Windows 10

  • mkvmerge: track statistics tags: the TagDefault element will not be written anymore as it was always set to the default value 1 anyway. Implements #2202.
  • mkvmerge, MKVToolNix GUI: JSON files can now contain C++-style line comments outside of strings (e.g. something like this: // this is ignored). Such comments, even though not part of the official JSON specifications, are now ignored when reading JSON files.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor: opening a Matroska file without chapters in it will now open the file in an empty chapter editor instead of showing an error message. Implements #2218.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: an 'info' tool has been added, replacing the functionality of mkvinfo’s GUI. The functionality is not on par yet but will be for release v22. Implements most of the functionality of #2104.

Bug fixes

  • build system: configure was treating --disable-ubsan and --disable-addrsan the same as --enable-ubsan and --enable-addrsan. Fixes #2199.
  • build system: an error message is output if a command to execute is not found instead of silently failing.
  • build system: in addition to looking for the gettext C function and library, configure now also verifies the presence of the msgfmt program instead of simply relying on it.
  • mkvmerge: appending files with additional parts at the same time was broken if more than one additional part was appended (e.g. when appending files from DVDs with something like '(' VTS_01_1.VOB VTS_01_2.VOB ')' + '(' VTS_02_1.VOB VTS_02_2.VOB ')'). In such a situation the content from files VTS_02_1.VOB and VTS_02_2.VOB where laid out in parallel to the content from the earlier files.
  • mkvmerge: FLV reader: a single invalid AAC frame was written for AAC audio tracks with codec initialization data longer than five bytes.
  • mkvmerge: FLV reader: timestamps will be normalized down to 0. Fixes #2220.
  • mkvmerge: MP4 reader: if an AAC track doesn’t contain an AAC-specific decoder configuration in the ESDS portion, then a default decoder configuration will be generated based on the track’s header data instead of skipping the track. Fixes #2221.
  • mkvmerge: MP4 reader: fixed reading HEVC/h.265 video tracks if they’re stored as Annex B byte streams inside MP4. Fixes #2215.
  • mkvmerge: Ogg Opus reader: mkvmerge will now emit a warning instead of aborting when it encounters an Ogg Opus page with no data in the packet. Fixes #2217.
  • mkvmerge, mkvextract: Matroska parser: fixed a segmentation fault that occurred whenever the first level 1 element after resyncing after an error in the file structure isn’t a cluster. Fixes #2211.
  • mkvmerge, MKVToolNix GUI multiplexer & header editor: fixed a crash during file type detection for attachments if MKVToolNix is installed in a path with non-ASCII characters (e.g. German Umlauts). Fixes #2212.
  • mkvinfo: the --hex-positions parameter did nothing in summary mode.
  • mkvinfo: Windows: line endings will be written as r (carriage return & line feed) again instead of just (line feed).
  • mkvpropedit: adding track statistics tags: for tracks with content encoding (compression) mkvpropedit is now accounting the uncompressed number of bytes, not the encoded (compressed) number of bytes. Fixes #2200.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the subtitle character set can now be set for appended subtitle files, too. Fixes #2214.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when appending, all tracks appended to disabled tracks will start out disabled, too.

Have fun :)
