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 46.0.0

Version 46.0.0 "No Deeper Escape"

New features and enhancements

* mkvmerge: when splitting, the placeholder `%c` can be used in the
  destination file name. It'll be replaced by the name of the first chapter in
  the file.
* mkvmerge: when reading MPLS playlists mkvmerge will include a tag named
  `SOURCE_ID` in the track's statistics tags that conveys the fact that the
  source was a Blu-ray and what the track's ID was in the source
  container. When reading Matroska file existing `SOURCE_ID` tags will be
  kept. The format used is the same format MakeMKV uses.
* mkvmerge: for audio-only files mkvmerge will now write a cue entry every
  500ms instead of every 2s.
* MKVToolNix GUI: job actions: split up the option "execute when the job
  finishes successfully or with warnings" into two separate options: \ 
"…when
  finishes successfully" and "…when exits with warnings".

Bug fixes

* mkvmerge: Matroska reader: when regenerating UIDs for chapters mkvmerge will
  now fix referencing tag chapter UID targets to have the same values.
* mkvmerge: MP4 reader: fixed a crash that could potentially happen while
  trying to identify H.265/HEVC tracks.
* mkvmerge: MP4 reader: when reading H.265/HEVC tracks without a frame offset
  table (`ctts` atom) present, mkvmerge did not parse the `hevcC` structure
  correctly in certain cases, causing no video frames to be output at all or
  the output not being playable.
* mkvmerge: MPLS handling/MPEG TS reader: timestamp restrictions as given in
  an MPLS file were only honored for the first play item, not for subsequent
  play items. For those play items the whole referenced file was always
  copied.
* mkvmerge: MPLS handling/MPEG TS reader: under certain circumstances mkvmerge
  copied one frame too many before switching to the next play item.
* mkvmerge: for audio-only files cues will only be created for I frames
  (important for e.g. TrueHD where decoding can only start on a sync
  frame).
* MKVToolNix GUI: fixed a crash that happened when closing the preferences
  after having closed at least one multiplexer tab.
* MKVToolNix GUI: macOS: changed the default of the "elide tab header \ 
labels"
  feature introduced in v45 from "no" to "yes" to mirror how \ 
versions before
  v45 behaved on macOS.

mkvtoolnix: updated to 45.0.0

Version 45.0.0 "Heaven in Pennies"

New features and enhancements

* mkvmerge: mkvmerge has never supported appending & splitting FLAC audio
  tracks. mkvmerge will now emit error messages when the user attempts either
  instead of continuing and creating invalid FLAC tracks.
* MKVToolNix GUI: added an option in the preferences to turn on eliding text
  on tab headers. If enabled, tab names will be shortened so that all tab
  headers fit into the window's width.
* MKVToolNix GUI: added an option in the preferences to disable all tooltips.
* MKVToolNix GUI: Windows: debug output sent via Qt's to Windows' debugging
  facility will use a more verbose message format including the application
  name, making it easier to filter for in SysInternal's "Debug View" \ 
utility.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: if the file identification fails due to a JSON
  parser error, the output generated by `mkvmerge` will be output via Qt's
  debugging facility (viewable with SysInternal's "Debug View" utility on
  Windows; on other systems it's output on `STDERR`) allowing insight into
  what's gone wrong.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: if an error occurs during file identification,
  the name of the processed file will be mentioned in the error message.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: if an error occurs during identification of
  multiple files, the GUI will ask the user whether to continue or abort the
  identification process.
* MKVToolNix GUI: job queue: added an option in the preferences for removing
  completed jobs when exiting the program depending on their status.

Bug fixes

* mkvmerge: H.265/HEVC packetizer: fixed changing the NALU size length, it was
  using the wrong offset into the `hevcC` structure.
* mkvmerge: MP4 reader: fixed calculating the duration of video tracks that
  only contain a single frame.
* mkvmerge: MP4 reader: if there's no frame offset table (`ctts` atom) present
  for H.265/HEVC video tracks, mkvmerge will determine the timestamp order
  itself instead of relying on the timestamps in the MP4 being in the
  presentation order required by Matroska.
* mkvpropedit: Windows: mkvpropedit wasn't caching when reading the file to
  modify, slowing down operations such as adding track statistics tags
  considerably.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when using the title as part of the destination
  file name (both automatically as well as using the "copy title to
  destination file name" function) all characters that aren't valid in a file
  name are replaced by hyphens.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the "copy title to destination file name"
  function was broken when the "make file name unique" option in the
  preferences was disabled. In that case the file base name was removed
  regardless of what the title was set to at the time.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when using the "show command line" menu \ 
option
  on Windows the path to the `mkvmerge` executable was shown with forward
  slashes instead of backslashes. This is a purely cosmetic fix as Windows
  supports both forward and backward slashes.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when adding Blu-ray playlists the GUI used to
  only look for the English version of the disc library information (title &
  cover images). Now the GUI will present all disc library entries in the
  "select playlist to add" dialog & let the user chose which one \ 
to use (if
  any).
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer, info tool: fixed the "warn before \ 
overwriting"
  check wrt. jobs creating the same file.

mkvtoolnix: updated to 44.0.0

Version 44.0.0 "Domino"

New features and enhancements
* MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: the attachments can now be reordered via drag
  & drop.

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.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the "ask before overwriting" \ 
functionality did
  not look for the correct file names when splitting was active.

mkvtoolnix: updated to 43.0.0

Version 43.0.0 "The Quartermaster":

New features and enhancements
* MKVToolNix GUI: using one of the command line options `--info`,
  `--edit-headers` or `--edit-chapters` will make the GUI select the
  corresponding tool on startup even if no further file name is
  given.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: added a setting in the preferences for changing
  the location of the MediaInfo executable for when the user accidentally
  selected the wrong one.

Bug fixes
* mkvmerge: AVC/h.264 parser: the order of the NALUs before each key frame was
  sometimes wrong: mkvmerge wrote SPS & PPS after SEI NALUs. Now SPS & PPS
  NALUs are always written before the other NALUs. Patch by Torsten
  Hauska.
* mkvmerge: AVC/h.264 parser: when additional SPS or PPS NALUs (with IDs that
  haven't been seen so far) are found mid-stream, mkvmerge will prepend all
  following key frames with all current valid SPS & PPS NALUs (just like when
  SPS & PPS NALUs are overwritten mid-stream).
* mkvmerge: MPEG TS reader: fixed detection of MPEG-1/2 video tracks
  consisting of very few frames.
* mkvmerge: Ogg Opus reader: fixed the handling of Ogg Opus streams that
  contain a just one Ogg page (`mkvmerge` aborted with an exception).
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: dragging & dropping XML files with chapters or
  tags to the GUI's window was broken in v42. Instead of adding the file names
  to the appropriate input boxes the GUI was running mkvmerge for file
  identification purposes which then failed.
