Mpc-hc will autoload all other files with the same root file name within the same directory. Perhaps it loaded the .mkv file, autoloaded the .mp4 file (thinking it was audio) and then its custom graph builder used the mp4 but ignored the mkv.

It is all deleted. Maybe I have the time at the weekend to try it again.

@Mosu

Could you please, please, please (repeat ad libitum) add a feature that automatically creates a chapter list when merging some (imagine a lof of) media files?

Thanks!

Please elaborate on what you're doing and what you'd need from that function.

I'm pretty sure that this is not what he wants. Consider the case in which you have separate files for audio, video and subtitles. You probably don't want to have a chapter for each file in that case. Of course you could say that mkvmerge should only create chapters for the video tracks.

Next example. You have one huge source file with a video track but several separate subtitle and audio files. For which files do you create chapters in that case? The solution from the example above won't work: you'd end up with a single chapter.

mkvmerge is very flexible in how you append files and therefore it's almost impossible to guess what the user actually wants ( = for which files the user wants the chapters created).

Sorry, I was a bit in a hurry

I am currently converting a lot of mts video from my Sony cam to single separated mkvs. I'd like to join some of them, while keeping the ability to jump from one to another.

I've thought a bit about how I would have to implement this and came to the conclusion that it's way too much work. Sorry. At the moment mkvmerge requires that all chapter information is available right from the start so that it can be handled properly in all cases -- even when splitting is active.

Sigh. Sob.

Can you address me to an alternative way of creating a correct incremental chapter list, using something to get the correct time format and some program to calculate progressive time codes? I have "googled" (hating that term) but found nothing useful.

Not really. Here's what I'd do:

1. Mux the whole thing without chapters.
2. Watch the resulting file; seek to the positions you want the chapters at.
3. Write down the timecodes.
4. Create chapters with those timecodes.

The timecode format is easy enough. Use short ones: HH:MM:SS (hours, minutes, seconds)

mkvtoolnix v3.2.0 released

Hey,

I've released mkvtoolnix v3.2.0. This release contains contains the usual mix of bug fixes and smaller enhancements.

Here are the usual links...

...to the home page:
http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/

...to the source code:
http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkv...-3.2.0.tar.bz2

...to the Windows installer and 7zip archive:
http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkv....2.0-setup.exe
http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkv...icode-3.2.0.7z

All binaries that I provide myself have already been uploaded.

Here's the full ChangeLog since release 3.1.0:

------------------------------------------------------------
2010-02-12 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>

* Released v3.2.0.
* Build requirements changed: The GUIs for mkvtoolnix now require wxWidgets 2.8.0 or newer.

2010-02-11 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mmg, mkvpropedit: Fixed another bug causing a crash writing chapters/other elements to existing Matroska files.

2010-02-10 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* Build system: bug fix: Improved detection of Boost::Filesystem for newer Boost versions.

2010-02-09 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* docs: Added a Chinese Simplified translation for the man pages by Dean Lee (see AUTHORS).

2010-02-06 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: bug fix: Outputting error messages about invalid XML files will not cause mkvmerge to crash on Windows anymore.
* mmg: enhancement: Added an input field for the segment info XML file (mkvmerge's "--segmentinfo" option) on the "global" tab.

2010-02-03 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mmg: bug fix: The jobs will be saved in the 'mkvtoolnix/jobs' sub-directory of the 'application data' folder instead of the 'jobs' folder in the current directory. On Windows this is the special 'application data' folder inside the user's profile directory, e.g. 'C:\Users\mbunkus\AppData\mkvtoolnix'. On non-Windows systems this is the folder '.mkvtoolnix' in the user's home directory. mmg's configuration file has also been moved from ~/.mkvmergeGUI to ~/.mkvtoolnix/config on non-Windows systems. Fix for bug 466.

2010-01-28 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvextract: bug fix: Files are only opened for reading, not for writing, so that mkvextract will work on files the user only has read-only permissions for.
* mkvextract: bug fix: Modes 'attachments', 'chapters', 'tags' and 'cuesheet': mkvextract will output an error message if the file cannot be opened (e.g. because it does not exist or due to lack of access).

2010-01-24 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mmg: enhancement: Changing the interface language does not require a restart anymore.
* mkvmerge: bug fix: Reading VOB files bigger than 4 GB was broken in v3.1.0 on 32bit platforms.

2010-01-22 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mmg: bug fix: Tooltips were not word-wrapped on Windows.
* mkvinfo: enhancement: Added the "EBML maximum size length" element to the list of known elements. Fix for bug 464.

2010-01-20 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mmg: new feature: Added a control for mkvmerge's "--cropping" parameter.
* mmg: enhancement: Added the file extensions ".dtshd", ".dts-hd", ".truehd" and ".true-hd" to mmg's"'add/append file" dialogs.
* mkvextract: bug fix: "mkvextract --version" was only writing an empty string. Fix for bug 463.
------------------------------------------------------------

Have fun.

Hi,

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this so if not please accept my apologies.

I want to take an MKV of a Bluray made using MakeMKV and add the colour flags for BT.709 (I don't want to make any other changes):

colour_description_present_flag : 1
colour_primaries : 1
transfer_characteristics : 1
matrix_coefficients : 1

I think this is possible using MKVmerge but I have no idea where to start.

I have little to no experience with mkvtoolnix so be gentle with me please :-)

Many thanks for any help with this.

Those seem to be codec parameters (I don't know them) and have nothing to do with the Matroska container. mkvmerge cannot help you with that.

i use the 3.2.0 mux .thd+ac3 to mkv. but it seems not contained the ac3 core. and the TSmuxer can't recognise the truehd track.
and i mux .thd+ac3 to mka. and the mka size is not as the same as the original
and when i play it,ffdshow is well . Arcsoft TMT can't play sound.
so my question is . did the mkvtoolnix abandoned the ac3 core when it muxing ? can i mux the the full track (truehd+ac3) to mkv?

mkvmerge discards AC3 cores in TrueHD tracks, yes. No, that won't change anytime soon (if at all).

As far as I understand the AC3 core is only present so that decoders that don't support TrueHD can play back _something_ from such a track. TrueHD is a lossless compression format, therefore the AC3 part is redundant if the decoder supports TrueHD.
