MKVtoolnix is a set of tools to create, alter and inspect Matroska files.

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.

mkvtoolnix: updated to 50.0.0

Version 50.0.0 "Awakenings"

New feature: IETF BCP 47 language tags

* I've written up a [nice FAQ
  \ 
entry](https://gitlab.com/mbunkus/mkvtoolnix/- … MKVToolNix)
  about the switch to using IETF BCP 47 language tags, how they interact with
  legacy language elements, how the programs actually behave and how to
  disable their use if necessary.
* mkvmerge: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: mkvmerge will now accept full
  BCP 47 language tags for all options taking a language. mkvmerge will always
  write "LanguageIETF" track header elements. If the language tag \ 
contains a
  valid ISO 639-2 language code it will also set the legacy "Language" \ 
track
  header element to the included ISO 639-2 code.
* mkvmerge: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: if present the \ 
"LanguageIETF"
  track header element will be reported as the `language_ietf` property in
  JSON identification mode.
* mkvmerge: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags in chapters: mkvmerge will now
  write "ChapLanguageIETF" elements when creating chapter atoms, \ 
either when
  reading the simple chapter format or when generating chapters due to the
  `--generate-chapters` command line option.
* mkvmerge: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags in tags: mkvmerge will now
  write "TagLanguageIETF" elements when creating "simple \ 
tag" elements, either
  when reading tag XML files or when generating them.
* mkvmerge: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: added an option
  `--disable-language-ietf` that causes mkvmerge to only write the legacy
  language elements.
* mkvmerge, mkvpropedit, MKVToolNix GUI's chapter editor: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646
  language tags in chapters: when reading XML chapter files the programs will
  now add "ChapLanguageIETF" elements for atoms that don't contain \ 
them. The
  values are derived from existing "ChapterLanguage" elements.
* mkvpropedit: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: setting/deleting the track
  language now acts on both the old language element as well as the
  "LanguageIETF" track header element.
* mkvpropedit: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: added an option
  `--disable-language-ietf` that causes mkvpropedit to apply changes to the
  `language` track header property only to the legacy language track header
  element.
* mkvinfo: IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646 language tags: added support for the
  "LanguageIETF" track header element.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: added full support for IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646
  language tags for both track and chapter languages.
* MKVToolNix GUI: chapter: added full support for IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646
  language tags for chapter languages.
* MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: added full support for IETF BCP 47/RFC 5646
  language tags for track header languages. The header editor allows editing
  of the legacy language elements and the IETF BCP 47 language elements
  independent of each other.

Other new features and enhancements

* mkvmerge: the chapter generation mode `when-appending` now also works with
  the splitting modes `parts:` & `parts-frames:` when using the `…,+…` syntax
  for appending other sections of the source file to the same destination
  file.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the file selection dialogs now include the
  extension `.dtsma` for DTS files.
* mkvmerge: MP4 reader: sped up parsing MP4 DASH files with a lot of segments
  (`trun` atoms) quite a bit.
* The PCRE2 regular expression library is now used instead of `std::regex` for
  big performance improvements in all places where regular expressions are
  used for parsing big chunks of text, e.g. in the subtitle parsers.
* all programs: Windows: all programs now support long file names on Windows
  10 release 1604 if they're turned on in the registry.

Bug fixes

* MKVToolNix GUI: preferences: under certain conditions changing the selected
  entry in the page tree on the left did not cause the page shown on the right
  to be updated.
* mkvmerge: splitting text by a fixed string (e.g. `,`) is now done by using
  `std::string.find()` instead of using a regular-expression-based text
  splitting function, greatly improving its performance.
* mkvmerge: mkvmerge will now read-buffer file I/O when probing text file
  formats which increases its speed significantly on Windows.
* mkvmerge: MP4 reader: fixed handling of `tkhd` atoms of version 1.

Build system changes

* The PCRE2 library (the 8-bit variant) is now required.

mkvtoolnix: updated to 49.0.0

Version 49.0.0 "Sick Of Losing Soulmates" 2020-08-02

New features and enhancements

* mkvmerge: added support for copying the new track header elements
  `BlockAddIDName`, `BlockAddIDType`, `BlockAddIDValue` and
  `BlockAddIDExtraData` from Matroska files if they exist.
* mkvinfo: added support for the new track header elements
  `BlockAdditionMapping`, `BlockAddIDName`, BlockAddIDType`, `BlockAddIDValue`
  and `BlockAddIDExtraData`.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the list of recent directories can now be
  edited in the preferences → "Multiplexer" → "Destination file
  name".
* MKVToolNix GUI: preferences: the values in the various "predefined \ 
values"
  lists can now be re-ordered freely by dragging & dropping.

Bug fixes

* mkvmerge: Matroska reader: when reading tracks (e.g. a subtitle track) from
  Matroska files with their `default track` flag set to `yes`, and when
  overwriting those via the command line to `no`, `mkvmerge` would not promote
  additional tracks of the same type from other files (e.g. another subtitle
  track from an SRT file).
* mkvmerge: SRT reader: empty lines inside entries were doubled.
* mkvmerge: subtitles: when calculating the rounded duration of each entry the
  error from rounding the corresponding timestamp will be taken into
  account.
* mkvextract: SSA/ASS extraction: mkvextract is no longer inserting empty
  lines before the `Dialogue:` lines.
* mkvextract: USF subtitles: start & end timestamps were too high by a factor
  of 1.000.000.
* MKVToolNix: info tool: when saving to a text file the checkbox "Save as
  default for saving output to text files" did nothing.
* MKVToolNix: info tool: when saving to a text file in "all elements in a
  tree-like structure" mode, the GUI always stopped at the first cluster
  regardless of the setting of the "verbosity" option.
* MKVToolNix GUI: preferences: when tooltips were disabled the dialogs for
  adding new entries to the various "predefined values" lists were missing
  their texts.
* Windows installer: the images are shown again.
* configure: fixed detection of QtDBus.

Build system changes

* libMatroska v1.6.1 is now required. The bundled version has been updated to
  that version.

Log message:
mkvtoolnix: updated to 48.0.0

Version 48.0.0 "Sick Of Losing Soulmates" 2020-06-27

New features and enhancements

* mkvmerge: AC-3: file identification will report AC-3 tracks encoded in Dolby
  Surround EX as codec "AC-3 Dolby Surround EX".
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: on new installations the GUI will now recognize
  all known ISO 639-2 language codes in file names by default instead of only
  the top 100 of languages by native speakers.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: on new installations the list of "often used
  languages" will by default only contain certain agnostic ones ("multiple
  languages", "no linguistic content", "reserved for local \ 
use", "uncoded
  languages"), "English" and the default user interface language. \ 
The "list of
  spoken languages by native speaks" isn't used anymore.
* MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: added an option to remove all attachments to
  the tree context menu.
* MKVToolNix GUI: while the GUI is running it will remember the last page that
  was selected when the preferences dialog is closed. Upon re-opening the
  preferences that page will be selected by default.

Bug fixes

* mkvmerge: fixed a segmentation fault when exiting prematurely due to write
  errors such as the destination having run out of space.
* mkvmerge: DTS: fixed wrong channel count for DTS tracks with XCh
  extensions.
* mkvmerge: MPEG TS reader: fixed detecting h.264/AVC and h.265/HEVC tracks
  that consist of only a single frame.
* mkvmerge: MPEG TS reader: fixed handling of unbounded PES sizes for tracks
  that consist of only a single PES packet.
* mkvmerge: MPEG TS reader: PGS subtitle tracks are now exempt from the
  "detect bogus subtitle timestamps" heuristic which could lead to some PGS
  subtitles not being timestamped correctly. Symptoms were that they were
  shown at the wrong time or that they were shown indefinitely.
* mkvmerge: MPEG TS reader: when reading MPLS playlists the start timestamps
  of a play items were handled wrong: all the timestamps of packets read were
  compared to that start timestamp, dropping those packets whose timestamps
  were smaller than the play item's start timestamp. The correct behavior is
  to accept all packets as soon as the first one with a timestamp equal to or
  larger than the play item's start timestamp is encountered. This could
  result in PGS subtitle entries located right at the start of the play item
  being garbled/lost as they consist of multiple PES packets for which some
  timestamps are often slightly smaller.
* mkvmerge: MPEG TS reader: when reading MPLS playlists mkvmerge will no
  longer read the whole M2TS files they reference, processing only the packets
  lying inside the timestamp range given by the playlists's play item's start
  & end timestamps. Instead mkvmerge will use the index information present in
  corresponding clip information (CLPI) files in order to seek to the nearest
  file position of the play item's start timestamp. Additionally mkvmerge will
  simply stop processing a file once the end timestamp is seen. This change
  greatly speeds up processing files from which only small portions must be
  read.
* mkvmerge: WavPack: fixed support for files created by v5 of the
  program. Checksums, DSD audio data and non-standard sampling rates are
  handled correctly. Patch by David Bryant.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: fixed the cursor being positioned wrong after
  entering or pasting characters that aren't allowed in file names into the
  "destination file" control.

Build system changes

* libEBML v1.4.0 and libMatroska v1.6.0 are now required.

Other changes

* The source code repository's main development branch was renamed to `main`.

mkvtoolnix: updated to 47.0.0

Version 47.0.0 "Black Flag"

New features and enhancements

* mkvmerge: chapters: mkvmerge can now read chapters from DVDs if the user
  specifies the path to a DVD folder structure via the `--chapters …`
  parameter. By default chapters from the first title will be imported. This
  can be changed by append `:<title number>` to the file/directory name in the
  `--chapters …` argument, e.g. `--chapters /srv/dvds/BigBuckBunny/VIDEO_TS:3`
  This feature requires mkvmerge to have been built with the `libdvdread`
  library.
* mkvmerge: added `--engage append_and_split_flac` that enables mkvmerge to
  append and split FLAC tracks, restoring pre-v45 behavior.  The resulting
  tracks will be broken: the official FLAC tools will not be able to decode
  them and seeking will not work as expected.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: added support for mkvmerge's new support for
  reading chapters from DVDs if both have been built with the `libdvdread`
  library.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when deriving languages from file names the GUI
  will now look for simplified language names instead of the full ones
  (e.g. instead of looking for "Greek, Modern (1453-)" it would simply look
  for "Greek").
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the options in the "additional command-line
  options" dialog are now sorted alphabetically. Additionally the
  `--append-mode` option has been added as one of the only missing global
  options.
* MKVToolNix GUI: chapter editor: the chapter editor can now read chapters
  from DVDs if MKVToolNix has been build with the `libdvdread` library.
* MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: added an option in the preferences for
  displaying all date & time values in UTC instead of the local time
  zone.

Bug fixes

* all: fixed a crash when using the `MTX_LOGGER=file` syntax for logging debug
  messages without specifying a file name to log to. It will now log to a file
  called `mkvtoolnix-debug.log` in the system's default temporary directory,
  as initially intended.

Build system changes

* The [`libdvdread`](https://www.videolan.org/developers/libdvdnav.html)
  library will be used if found via `pkg-config`. If it is found, support for
  reading chapters from DVDs will be enabled in `mkvmerge` and the MKVToolNix
  GUI.
* Boost's Date/Time, Lexical Cast, Range, Range Adaptors, Tri-Bool, Variant
  libraries are not used anymore.
* MKVToolNix now requires a C++ compiler & standard library that support the
  following features of the C++17 standard: "`std::variant`", \ 
"`std::gcd`".
  For the GNU Compiler Collection (gcc) this means v7 or newer; for clang it
  means v4 or newer — the same versions required by earlier MKVToolNix
  versions.
* MKVToolNix now requires version 6.1.0 of fmtlib or later for the
  `fmt::to_string` function and bugfixes to the formatting of floating point
  numbers. If a system-wide version is installed that's older, the bundled
  copy will be used.
* The bundled version of fmtlib has been updated to release 6.2.1.
