You "got" the 700 MKV files ?

Please have a look at rule 6 of the forum rules:

Sorry, nobody can help you unless you can produce evidence that you are a legal owner of that content you "got". .

Thanks anyway, i can do the "1 click per file" job for not to get fired...

Anyway, not everything is about cracks, warez, serials, illegally obtained stuff. You must clear this insanity...

It should be very easy to write a batch script which will convert all your files. Use the CLI version of MKVExtract.

If you're using some kind of Linux-ish/BSD-ish system or a proper shell on Windows (e.g. cygwin's bash or MSYS from the mingw project) then you could script something. Assuming that the first audio track is always a MP3 you could do something like...

Code:
for file in *.mkv ; do
  track_id="`mkvmerge -i "$file" | grep '^Track.*: audio' | head -n 1 | awk '{ gsub(":", "", $3); print $3 }'
  if [ "$track_id" != "" ]; then
    mkvextract tracks "$file.mkv" "${track_id}:${file}-extracted-${track_id}.mp3"
  fi
done
What it does is:
  • It calles mkvmerge in "identification" mode which prints out the track IDs and track types.
  • Next, the line corresponding to the first audio track is extracted.
  • The track ID is extracted from this line.
  • mkvextract is called with this ID and an automatically constructed file name.

Of course on plain Windows you're probably out of luck

MKVExtract Batch trick

Hi all,
I'm new using this useful tool.
I have been curious to make it work in something like a "batch mode" (having a certain number of files to be extracted from their sources).
So I tried a simple mode to let it do automatically.
Here is how I do:

1. (In MKV Extract GUI) I open the source file (from where I want to extract the tracks)

2. In the "Tracks" tab (located at the bottom window in the main screen) I will see a text with the commands for the current job: select all that text and copy it (CTRL+C)

3. Now I open a TXT file in which I PASTE the copied command. At the end of the command line I put a Carriage Return and start with a new line.

4. Repeat this procedure for all of the files I want to extract (the commands will be one after another in the TXT file.

5. Now select all the text in the TXT file and copy it in the clipboard (CTRL+C)

6. Open a DOS window (Start -> Run... -> CMD), change dir to the folder where is MKVToolnix

7. Now PASTE (mouse right-click -> paste) the copied text and let the batch work.

For me it works perfectly; hope it will be useful for anyone who need it.

Enjoy.

I have a question about the mkxuncat.exe. The one that comes with MKVExtractGUI is 212 KB and the one with MKVE Wizard 74.5 KB. Both versions seem to work with MKVExtractGUI, console window that pops up shows with both "mkxuncat v0.1.0". So why the filesize difference when they're suppose to be the same thing at least by the version number? So which one of them is newer or better so to speak?

Second question is about MKVE Wizard and its uncat feature. Is it broken?

Thank you very much for the program, just want the GUI version to "fill the gap" of MKV tools.

I've drag a file with Unicode characters on the GUI, it display some ? characters, can you please compile with UTF-8 support?

Thanks.

Hi all,

I have been trying to find mkvextract gui to be used with the latest mkvtoolnix but 90% of the places I try to download from have bad links.

Where can I find mkvextract gui latest as 1.6.4.1 doesn't seem compatible with newest mkvextract.exe

1.6.4.1 is the latest version. What do you mean not compatible? It works for me with the latest Mkvtoolnix.

This application seems to be abandoned. Try MKVcleaver instead.

/edit:
@XhmikosR
It will error on attachments and maybe some other things.

If so. wants to get MKVExtractGUI anyways, get it here: MKVExtractGUI 1.6.4.1

Thanks sneaker_ger.

Well extracting things like tags, I am getting strange command line errors printed to the txt file rather than proper contents. I assumed the command line interface has changed format in a recent mkvextract.exe and the gui doesn't support it.

I am converting all of my DVD's to mkv to put into library on pc. I have a DVD that I have never been able to get to mkv properly. Its "The World Is Not Enough". Here is what I am doing

Convert DVD to mkv using makemkv

Now if I play this the way it is there are two problems.

1) The audio is perfectly in sync.
2) There is an audio glitch at one (or maybe more) points in the movie. They are reproducable, and even visible on the mpc-hc evr graph. The graph is flat until these points.

So I continue anyways.

Use mkvextract to extract the mpeg2 video
Use DVD Patcher to force each frame to be the correct 16:9 aspect ratio (this dvd is a little different to the rest, and needs this to play correctly in mpc-hc and ffdshow).
Use mkvmerge using original mkv, disabling its mpeg2 video, and inserting the new mpeg2 from dvd patcher above.

Now if I play this the way it is there are two problems.

1) The audio is out of sync, significantly
2) There is an audio glitch at one (or maybe more) points in the movie. They are reproducable, and even visible on the mpc-hc evr graph. The graph is flat until these points.

So I tried to now use audio and video timecode files. With this

1) The audio is perfectly in sync
2) The audio glitch is still there.

I can't get rid of this glitch, for many months. The original dvd doesn't have it, and even converting mkv back to a ts file doesn't have it. It seems to be only when its as an mkv.......

I suppose if anyone knows, what software other than makemkv I can use to stop this glitch from appearing at certain points in the movie? I assume its the cause of the problem.

I think the author was busy or abandon it already.
Try MKVCleaver instead, it's good.

I do not know if the request is a mission impossible, but I try.
you can make it compatible with subtitles TextST?

The latest version 2.2.2.9 shows them regularly, but you can not make the demux of these subtitles.




By placing the mux with MakeMKV, with the latest version (1.9.1) is already compatible with this type of subtitles.




Thanks

So MakeMKV is inventing their own CodecIDs again without talking with anyone about it? Great! *sigh*

S_HDMV/TEXTST subtitles are currently not supported by MKVToolNix. I have patches, but I haven't finished them. On top of that Mike from MakeMKV and me didn't entirely agree on the format the extracted subtitles should use…
