MKVToolNix is a free, open source program developed by Moritz Bunkus, the program is licensed under the GPL, so the source code is available to anyone interested, it is cross-platform available for Linux (offers for many distributions), Mac OS X, and Windows.
MKVToolNix is a set of tools to create, alter and inspect Matroska files - GUI frontend Matroska is a new multimedia container format, based on EBML (Extensible Binary Meta Language), which is a kind of binary XML. The mmg tool is a graphical user interface for the mkvmerge program, which allows one to create Matroska files from other formats. This package also contains a graphical version of the mkvinfo tool, which allows one to get information about a Matroska file.
MKVToolNix command-line tools does pretty much same thing this is intended for those who don't have GUI desktop on their system. Matroska is a new multimedia container format, based on EBML (Extensible Binary Meta Language), which is a kind of binary XML. These tools allow one to manipulate Matroska files. mkvmerge is a tool to create Matroska files from other formats mkvinfo allows one to get information about the tracks in a Matroska file mkvextract can extract tracks from Matroska files to other formats mkvpropedit can edit header and chapter information without remuxing. This package only provides command-line tools. For graphical tools, you should install the mkvtoolnix-gui package.
Matroska aims to become THE Standard of Multimedia Container Formats. It was derived from a project called MCF, but differentiates from it significantly because it is based on EBML (Extensible Binary Meta Language), a binary derivative of XML. EBML enables the Matroska Development Team to gain significant advantages in terms of future format extensibility, without breaking file support in old parsers.



Changes in this version:
  • mkvinfo: bug fix: mkvinfo would exit with the wrong return code (0 instead of 2) if a non-existing file name had been given.
  • mkvmerge: Two more characters are now escaped in the container and track properties output in verbose identification mode: [ is replaced with \b and ] with \B. This is needed for reliable parsing by other programs, e.g. GUIs.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: new feature: added context menu entries for tracks: »select all«, »enable all« and »disable all«.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: new feature: implemented aborting the currently running job.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: new feature: implemented the »additional command line options« dialog.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: new feature in the chapter editor: added features »set the language/country of the selected chapter and its sub-chapters«.
  • all: bug fix: fixed compilation with Boost 1.58.0.
  • mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed a segmentation fault during cleanup after Ctrl+C was pressed.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: new feature: the main window’s size, position and state (maximized/minimized) is saved on exit and restored on startup.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: new feature: the GUI is now fully translatable. The German translation has been completed for the GUI, too.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: new feature: implemented changing the interface language.
