For receivers with PVR the users are entirely at the mercy of the manufacturer (or the chipset manufacturer). My XORO HRT 720 seems to have the same chipset as your Comag. The latest firmware update was from June 2017, and it does not look like there will be any more updates in the future. But so far I never had such ugly glitches as you had in my captured files, not even on days when the air is full of low flying choppers (when some foreign high security politician is visiting Angie...)

MKVToolNix v24.0.0 released

Hey.

time for MKVToolNix v24.0.0, a release that's on the smaller side regarding the number of changes: nothing major, a number of smaller bugs squashed, a couple of enhancements.

AV1 support hasn't changed as the bitstream format still hasn't been finalized.

To my users on Debian and Ubuntu: just a friendly reminder that the layout of my APT repositories was changed in April. If you haven't done so, you'll have to update your `sources.list` entry accordingly. Read more about that in this blog post.

Here are the usual links: the MKVToolNix home page, the Windows installer/portable version & macOS DMG and the source code.

The Windows and macOS binaries are available already. The Linux binaries are still being built and will be available of the course of the next couple of hours.

Here are the NEWS since the previous release:

Quote:
# Version 24.0.0 "Beyond The Pale" 2018-06-10

## New features and enhancements

* mkvmerge: MP4 reader: improved the detection of edit lists consisting of two identical entries, each spanning the file's duration as given in the movie header atom. The second entry is ignored in such cases. See #2306.
* mkvmerge: JSON identification: the "display unit" video track property is now reported as `display_unit`. The JSON schema has been bumped to v11 for this change.
* mkvmerge, mkvextract: AVC/h.264: empty NALUs will now be removed.
* mkvextract: VobSub extraction: empty SPU packets will now be dropped during extraction as other tools such as MP4Box cannot handle them correctly. Implements #2293.

## Bug fixes

* mkvmerge: E-AC-3 parser: fixed determining the number of channels for streams that contain an AC-3 core with dependent E-AC-3 frames. Fixes #2283.
* mkvmerge: Matroska reader: fixed mkvmerge buffering the whole file if a video track is multiplexed that consists of only one or a few frames. Fixes #2304.
* mkvmerge: the "display unit" video track property will now be kept if it is set in the source file. Fixes #2317.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when scanning playlists, all playlists were offered for selection regardless of the value of the "minimum playlist duration" setting. Fixes #2299.
* MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: deriving track languages from file names: the regular sub-expressions for ISO 639-1 codes could match on empty strings, too, causing matches in wrong places and hence no language being recognized in certain situations. Fixes #2298.
* MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: fixed a crash when saving the file fails (e.g. because it isn't writable). Fixes #2319.
* MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: the editor was wrongfully claiming that mandatory elements with default values cannot be removed in the "status" text. Fixes #2320.
* MKVToolNix GUI: preferences: on macOS & Linux the setting "enable copying tracks by their type" wasn't restored on program start. Fixes #2297.

## Other changes

* Niels Lohmann's JSON library: the bundled version has been updated from v1.1.0 (git revision 54d3cab) to v3.1.1 (git revision g183390c1).
* pugixml library: the bundled version has been updated from v1.8 to v1.9 (git revision e584ea3).
Have fun

Regression report:

recent versions of MKVtoolnix are unable to mux MLP files correctly.
Version 5.8.0 of MKVmerge did the job well and produced a 28.3 MB .mka from a 26.8 .MLP, whereas MKVmerge 24.0.0 generates a 22.4 MB .mka from the same source.

Sample files: http://www.mediafire.com/file/dpwrgu...Sample.7z/file

In Midzuki's case 7.6 was the last version that worked; the behaviour changed in 7.7.

Out of interest... Why don't you re-encode your .mlp contained files to flac?

Thanks for the report. But please open an issue on Gitlab. Otherwise chances are I'll forget about it again.

In old versions of "mkvinfo.exe" the "--gui" key worked. Now it does not work , can I return it?

mkvinfo's GUI has been removed and replaced by the "info" tool in MKVToolNix GUI. You can start that directly via "mkvtoolnix-gui --info yourfile.mkv".

mkvinfo's GUI won't be coming back.

Hi Mosu
did this feature to mux MVC-mkv move up in the priority list somewhat...?

Thanks

How can I find out with mkvtoolnix what the average video bitrate of a *.mkv video is?

Sometimes tools like MediaInfo do not show this info.
See as sample snapshot here:
http://easycaptures.com/2581037801

But I could imagine that this is possible with mkvtooolnix

Some muxers like mkvmerge (or MakeMKV) add statistcs tags by default that enable MediaInfo to show the average bitrate of the tracks in the file to the user. If these tracks aren't there, MediaInfo simply doesn't know the numbers.
You can use mkvpropedit (a part of MKVToolNix) to add the track statistics tags to your file: mkvpropedit --add-track-statistics-tags <file>

Thank you for the suggestion.

I executed the command (on an existing *.mkv file) just as above and yes the output looks good:

The file is being analyzed.
The file is read in order to create track statistics.
Progress: 100%
The changes are written to the file.
Done.

But when I drag the *.mkv file afterwards onto MediaInfo again then the average bitrate is still NOT shown.

Whats wrong?

BTW: Can I somehow execute the --add-track-statistics-tags operation in the GUI version of mkvpropedit as well?
I found no corresponding checkbox or menu

And finally I wonder if there is a GUI which let me do this without changing the *.mkv file. In other words which analyze the mkv and show me all infos about the used codecs. Unfortunately
mkvtoolnix-gui.exe does not offer this function

It seems that MediaInfo doesn't display the track statistics tags in the usual way if the tags don't seem to have been created during muxing. This even applies to the case when there is a "date" element in the header so that one can check whether the tags are up to date (ffmpeg/Lavf doesn't write the date element). I'll report this to the MediaInfo developers.

It's a pity.
Can I run mkvtoolnix-gui.exe with English translation? I need something like the "--ui-language en" key, which was in mkvinfo.exe.
