MKVcleaver hangs for me once in a while. It happens very rarely and it seem pretty random and I'm not able to reproduce the bug reliably.

The times it has happened I've been batch processing (extracting subtitles) a large amount of files (100+). Suddenly the program hangs just after finishing processing one file, it's always between files because the subtitle file of the last processed file is always complete and the subtitle file of the next file in the list is either missing or empty. The last line of the log file just shows that it has successfully finished with one file.

It doesn't seem to be a problem with a specific file because killing MKVcleaver with the Task Manager (pressing Cancel or Close doesn't work) and then letting MKVcleaver go through the remaining files works just fine.

Using: Windows 7 x64 / MKVcleaver 0.5.0.3 (64 bit) / mkvtoolnix 4.4.0

I will test to see if I can reproduce the problem.

Sialivi,

Next time MKVcleaver hangs could you check in Task Manager if mkvextract.exe or avdump.exe or avc2avi.exe is still loaded in memory ?

I will, but I'm sure none of them was since I would have noticed when I killed the mkvcleaver process

Sialivi,

Can you remove 64 bit MKVCleaver and install 32 bit ? I'm experiencing crashes with 64 bit version on Windows 7 64 bit. However, 32 bit is working fine. Let me know the results.

sheck,
I'll keep that in mind, haven't had a need to batch extract from large number of files for a while.

Small feature request:
Windows 7 taskbar progress bar (look here if you don't know what I'm talking about)

UI resize is broke in x64 build. Seems the values in the ini are ignored. They get saved fine, but they are not respected.

Sialivi,

I will add it if it's not too much work.

War59312,

Thank you for reporting a bug.

war59312,

Make sure that resizing is on: Settings -> UI Resize. I could not confirm it as a bug as resizing is working fine for me in XP and WIN7 32 and 64 bit.

Great application, I use it daily.

I use this program all the time! Looking forward to the next released version

currently using 0.5.0.3, is there a beta or nightly build?

Hi Xekon,

No, there are no beta or nightly builds. The app is too small to have those. I'm currently working on the next version.

If you have requests, let me know.

Thanks.

Hello!
Thanks for this small, but very useful GUI.

I have some requests:
1) add the ability to extract chapters into OGM-like "simple" format ("-s" key in CLI mode)
2) add some error handling - for example, I have sample with LPCM audio that mkvtoolnix don't support, but when I try to extract it MKVcleaver finish job without any message.
Thanks.

How about a GTK interface so that this could be a native linux app as well? kinda like pidgin can run under both windows and linux.

mkvtoolnix is in linux as well

If linux version is not planned but you wouldn't mind somebody else porting it to linux then please let me know. I would be happy to give it a go. (Not sure if this application is opensource or not, either way let me know.)

arestarh,

1) No problem.
2) I will have to check this. If mkvtoolnix gives an error, MKVcleaver should catch it and log it (that's what it does already, check the log file to see if there is anything there). There is no point in displaying an error since it's a batch extractor. Imagine you have hundreds of files to extract and it would take 5 hours, so you leave it running only to come back in 5 hours and find out that MKVcleaver is sitting there displaying an error and it barely extracted anything. I would be pissed.

xekon,

I'm not planning on developing a linux version. But I don't mind if somebody else ports it. MKVCleaver is open source, feel free to do it. I can host it if you don't have your own web page or web storage or link to your project page if you do.

If you decide to update this great app further could you have it remember the location of MKVToolNix as well as the extract folder rather than having to set these two every time? Thanks.

MKVcleaver remembers location of MkvToolNix. If you're running WIN 7 with UAC enabled and MKVcleaver is installed in a protected directory, like Program Files, you must right click and select Run As Administrator. To avoid running it as administrator, please install MKVcleaver in another directory, root of C drive, My Documents or somewhere else.

The extract folder location will be remembered in the new version.

As example we can use this .mkv sample:
http://www.mediafire.com/?dgd92wil67bg8nq
It includes (as mkvmerge reported):
Quote:
File 'i:\Downloads\samples\CRANK (1)-001.mkv': container: Matroska
Track ID 1: video (V_MPEG2)
Track ID 2: audio (A_MS/ACM)
Track ID 3: subtitles (S_HDMV/PGS)
Chapters: 1 entries
And when I try to extract Track with ID 2 (besides mkvextract don't support such kind of tracks) I get this error message:
Quote:
Error: Extraction of track number 2 with the CodecID 'A_MS/ACM' is not supported
But after extraction with MKVclever I don't see such error report in log and no one extracted track.

Thanks.
