Howdy,

What subtitle & chapter tools do you recommend? I want to extract subtitles to SUP or SUB (not SRT). I'm not familiar with chapter tools, so I don't have any file-type suggestions. The subs & chaps will be imported to MKVToolNix GUI.

Thanks,
Mark.

Nothing I can do about that short of downgrading Qt, which I'm not going to do as that would make other problems resurface. Please be patient; it'll likely get fixed someday in Qt and I update Qt regularly.

I guessed the problem is Qt after updating another software which uses Qt, it now shows similar problems, however the difference is that it doesn't appear to be hanging like MKVToolnix but seems to open menus slowly. Mind you it uses Qt 5.14, don't remember what MKVToolnix v43 used. Should I report that to Qt devs or they are already aware of the problem?

You can check which Qt version MKVToolNix was built with via the "Help" → "System information" menu entry. For MKVToolNix v43 on Windows this was Qt 5.14.1.

I wasn't able to find anything in their bug tracker with a quick search.

Note that this particular problem doesn't happen on all Windows installations (it doesn't on my Windows 10, my Windows Server 2016 and Server 2019 installations). Neither did anyone open a bug report for it.

If it only happens on Windows 7, you might have to prepare for the problem not to be fixed anymore.

This would be a stupid move by the Qt devs since Win7 still is the #2 of the most frequently used Operating Systems today...

FWIW mkvmerge-gui.exe version 42.0.0 runs nicely with mkvtoolnix 43.0.0. Use a "clicker" tool like ClickOFF to get rid of the warning popup.

I have a small feature request for the GUI: Would it be possible to add a toggle reverse select button for the different streams/codecs in the "tracks, chapters and tags" window? Some source files contain a lot more subtitle streams compared to the usual two single audio and video streams you want to keep for muxing. In this case being able to deselect everything via pressing one button and simply reselect the few streams you want to keep would be way faster and more convenient than having to deselect ten or more subtitle streams all manually.

would be great if this could be implemented.

Assuming tracks are grouped by type, which they often are:
  1. Click on the top-most subtitle track
  2. Press & hold Shift & click on the bottom-most subtitle track
  3. Press return

That'll toggle "mux this" for all subtitle tracks. Really not that hard & doesn't really warrant yet another small function.

Segmenting by timecode puts audio out sync

EDIT: MOSU, could you possibly help me figure this out.
I've hunted for an answer everywhere. The issue is not isolated to one file or type of files within mkv. I'm not saying it's a bug. I honestly have no idea what it is or how to fix it, but I have tried.

--------------------
I was attempting to see just how effective split by frame and timecodes was in doing any simple video editing thinking, sure why edit the video, to remove commerciqls or unwanted office content etc, just segment the MKV pull out the chunks you don't want.

Segmenting by filesize works great for years. Segment by frame seems to work fine as well but to be honest, editing by timecodes is giving me problems.

Here was my practice file. I attempted to make a cliff notes version of episode one. 50 min content edited down to 10min.

X:/Downloads/APPS/mkvtoolnix_all/mkvtoolnix-64-bit-41.0.0/mkvtoolnix\mkvmerge.exe --ui-language en --output ^"C:\MOVIES\REMUX2\Magicians.S04E01.mkv^" --language 0:jpn --default-track 0:yes --display-dimensions 0:1920x1080 --compression 0:none --language 1:eng --default-track 1:yes --compression 1:none --sub-charset 2:UTF-8 --language 2:eng --track-name 2:SDH --compression 2:none ^"^(^" ^"E:\MOVIES\Season.04\Magicians.S04E01.mkv^" ^"^)^" --clusters-in-meta-seek --generate-chapters interval:00:05:00 --track-order 0:0,0:1,0:2 --split ^"parts:00:00:00-00:01:35,+00:02:03-00:02:10,+00:02:24-00:02:30,+00:02:45-00:02:59,+00:03:20-00:03:46,+00:04:50-00:05:00,+00:06:23-00:06:32,+00:07:51-00:08:09,+00:10:30-00:11:58,+00:17:17-00:18:28,+00:19:40-00:20:11,+00:26:43-00:27:06,+00:28:07-00:28:37,+00:37:45-00:38:20,+00:39:35-00:40:07,+00:42:10-00:44:28^"

Ran fine no errors but file was a mess.

—The audio was out of sync within first 30 seconds and was 2 min out of sync by end of 10 minute mkv.
—there were strange spots where the picture would stutter at the transition Point rather than a clean slice.. It appeared to be showing a portion of the end of previous segment and the beginning of next segment at same time.

—I bumped timecodes to 10000000
—I changed the cluster size to 100 thinking maybe smaller clusters could be sliced up easier.

The final product was still SEVERELY out of sync audio with video.

Any comments on why this happens and what to do to avoid it would be appreciated.

I've chopped up videos into 250MB chunks for x264 x265 test runs, ALL SEGMENTS perform perfectly.

No idea why do timecodes segments fall apart
Any suggestions?

MKVToolNix v44.0.0 released

Well hello everyon!

The last couple of weeks have been pretty slow wrt. MKVToolNix development (usually due to everything else being really hectic). Nevertheless I think it's time for a small maintenance
release.

Nothing's changed for package managers.

Here are the usual links: the MKVToolNix home page, the Windows installer/portable version & macOS DMG & Linux AppImage and the source code.

The Windows and macOS binaries as well as the Linux AppImage are available already. The other Linux binaries are still being built and will be available over the course of the next couple of hours.

Here are the NEWS since the previous release:

Version 44.0.0 "Domino" 2020-03-08
New features and enhancements
  • MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: the attachments can now be reordered via drag & drop. Implements #2753.

Bug fixes
  • mkvmerge: Matroska reader: when encountering certain errors in the track headers such as the codec ID not being present mkvmerge will simply skip those tracks instead of exiting with an error. Fixes #2737.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the "ask before overwriting" functionality did not look for the correct file names when splitting was active. Fixes #2741.

Have fun

Log File?

Thank you for MKVToolNix.

From searches I see clues that there's a log file. I can't find a log file, or a way to configure MKVToolNix to make a log file.

When attempting to move audio channels in a particular, existing MKV, the process quits at 78% with "Failed". I want to know what provoked the failure.

Thanks,
Mark.

When muxing you can find the output in the "job output" tool.

For past jobs you can find the logs in the "job queue" tool: right-click on the job in question and select "view output". That'll open another tab in the "job output" tool containing the messages generated by that job.

All they ever say is "Completed OK" or "Failed". I made a Failed (78%) remux the other day when I attempted to move an audio stream # in an MKV that I'd made the day before. I had no idea why it failed, just that it "Failed".

Ah! I never knew I could right-click on the job in question (there's no indication). Here's the output:

mkvmerge v41.0.0 ('Smarra') 64-bit
'xxxxx.mkv': Using the demultiplexer for the format 'Matroska'.
'xxxxx.mkv' track 0: Using the output module for the format 'MPEG-1/2 video'.
'xxxxx.mkv' track 1: Using the output module for the format 'AC-3'.
'xxxxx.mkv' track 2: Using the output module for the format 'AC-3'.
The file 'OUT.mkv' has been opened for writing.

As you can see, there's no indication why the remux "Failed".

MKVToolNix v44.0.0 released

I have a bunch of old AVI file I'd like to convert to MKV but file date is important to remember when they were shot.

Is there a way or a future feature to keep file time and data untouched? Any workaround?

Let me elaborate: image files have EXIF, where you can store date and time. There are a lot or programs that allows you to manipulate EXIF, file name, file date and whatsoever.

If we could store time and date into mkv container (perhaps even for every stream) from/to file name or file date it would be great.

Out of interest.... What formats are the video and audio streams?
