Branch: CURRENT, Version: 84.0, Package name: mkvtoolnix-84.0, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

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 82.0

Version 82.0 "I'm The President" 2024-01-02

New features and enhancements

* mkvmerge: Matroska reader: the "video alpha mode" track header \ 
property will
 be copied to the output file if present.
* mkvmerge: Matroska reader: the "video alpha mode" track header \ 
property will
 be reported in JSON identification mode as the track property
 `alpha_mode`.
* mkvmerge: Matroska reader: the file's timestamp scaling factor will be
 reported in JSON identification mode as the container property
 `timestamp_scale`.
* mkvmerge: MPEG transport stream reader: teletext subtitles intended for
 hearing impaired people (type 0x05) are now marked as such via the
 appropriate flag in the track headers.
* mkvmerge: file identification: the JSON identification output schema version
 has been bumped to 19.
* mkvmerge: added a new hack `always_write_block_add_ids` that can be used as
 a workaround for players that don't support the handling of missing "Block
 Addition ID" sub-elements of "Block More" elements in block additions
 properly. These are used for e.g. alpha channel data in VP9 with a "Block
 Addition ID" value of 1, which is also its default value.
* mkvinfo: added support for the "video alpha mode" track header element.
* mkvpropedit, MKVToolNix GUI's header editor: added support for the "video
 alpha mode" track header property. In `mkvpropedit` it's called
 `alpha-mode`.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when adding files the GUI can automatically
 enable the "hearing impaired" flag for audio and subtitle tracks if \ 
the file
 name contains the word "cc" or "sdh" delimited by certain \ 
characters
 (configurable). This feature is turned on by default.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when scanning for Blu-ray playlists the GUI
 will now ignore playlists that are likely meant for menus. Currently the GUI
 considers this to be the case when a playlist contains the same item at
 least five times. This behavior can be turned off in the
 preferences.

Bug fixes

* mkvmerge: MPEG transport stream reader: fixed a crash introduced in v81 that
 occurred when there was at least one PCM track that wasn't copied from the
 transport stream file.
* mkvmerge: when reading data from Matroska files damaged in a specific way,
 mkvmerge ended up trying to write various types of elements that aren't
 allowed to be written (so-called `EbmlDummy` elements as well as elements
 that don't have a value set) to the output file, which caused the underlying
 `libebml` library to abort. These types of broken elements are now filtered
 out.

Build system changes

* Qt 5 is no longer supported. Qt 6 is now required for building
 MKVToolNix. This implies that the options to `configure` revolving around
 configuring Qt 5 or choosing between the two have been removed
 (e.g. `--disable-qt6`).
* Qt 6 detection: if detection fails, error messages from `qmake` can now be
 found in `config.log`.
* Qt 6 detection: `configure` will only consider Qt 6.2.0 or newer, not 6.0.x
 or 6.1.y anymore, due to the lack of support for the multimedia module.
* Qt 6 detection: `configure` will now fail to detect Qt 6 if the 'multimedia'
 module is not found by `qmake` (e.g. due to development packages not being
 installed).
* The bundled `fmt` library was updated to v10.1.1.

mkvtoolnix: updated to 81.0

Version 81.0 "Milliontown" 2023-12-02

New features and enhancements

* mkvmerge: MPEG transport stream reader: HEVC/H.265: added support for
 reading single-layer Dolby Vision from Annex B type bitstream read from MPEG
 transport streams.
* mkvmerge: MPEG transport stream reader, HEVC/H.265 elementary stream reader:
 added support for reading dual-layer Dolby Vision with both the base &
 enhancement layers in the same track from Annex B type bitstreams in MPEG
 transport files & elementary stream files.
* mkvmerge: MPEG transport stream reader: HEVC/H.265: implemented combining
 dual-layer Dolby Vision with base & enhancement layers in different
 tracks.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: added a new option in the preferences for
 always enabling 'forced' subtitle tracks. A subtitle track is considered to
 be 'forced' if: the corresponding property is set in the source file; the
 track's name contains the word 'forced' (in English); deriving the 'forced
 display' flag from file names is active & the file name matches the
 corresponding pattern. The option is disabled by default.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: the functionality for detecting file name
 sequences when adding files can now recognize the patterns used by GoPro's
 cameras for chaptered video files.
* xyzvc_dump: the end position of the current NALU will be output in
 non-portable format as well.
* xyzvc_dump: HEVC: the tool will now also output the inner NALU type of Dolby
 Vision NALUs (`unspec62` and `unspec63`).

Bug fixes

* mkvmerge: when the user requests processing be stopped after the video ends
 `mkvmerge` will now take appending files into account properly. It won't
 stop processing unconditionally after the first file ends anymore.
* mkvmerge: AV1 handling in readers: the readers will now provide the pixel
 dimensions to the AV1 packetizer as early as possible, just like for other
 video packetizers. That way the pixel dimensions are available for
 calculating the display dimensions when command-line options such as
 `--aspect-ratio` & `--aspect-ratio-factor` are used. Before the change the
 calculation was done based on initial pixel dimension values of 0x0,
 resulting in display dimensions of 0x0, too.
* mkvmerge: HEVC/H.265 packetizer: when reading & appending HEVC/H.265 from
 Matroska, MP4/MOV or FLV files the first frame of all the appended files was
 sometimes dropped, resulting in broken video at the point where video is
 appended.
* mkvmerge: MPEG transport stream reader: when reading MPEG transport streams
 from Blu-rays the four-byte long `TP_extra_header` structure in front of the
 transport packets are now skipped properly. Before the fix a stray byte with
 value of `0x47` inside that `TP_extra_header` structure could have thrown
 off the detection of where the transport packets start, leading to mkvmerge
 dropping a few audio and/or video frames at the start of the file.
* mkvextract: AAC extractor: when an invalid program config element in the
 GA-specific config element is encountered, the program config element will
 be disregarded, which avoids mkvextract aborting with an exception.
* xyzvc_dump: fixed the tool aborting with an exception when the last NALU in
 an Annex B type file was shorter than four bytes.

Other changes

* AVC & HEVC dumper development tool: the tool has been renamed from
 `xvc_dump` to `xyzvc_dump` as `xvc` is an abbreviation for an existing video
 codec (Extreme Video Coding), and the tool has nothing to do with that
 codec.
