Hi,

I’ve found a small bug in MMG’s (3.0.0 on Windows) setting »File / Options / mmg / Use this directory«. When you enter a path with a backslash at the end here, the auto-created output filename in the main window will wrongly contain a double backslash before the actual file name.

Edit:
At least with Win XP that double backslash doesn’t have any negative effects. Muxing still works as expected. Still looks weird, though.

Double backslashes (on Windows) and double slashes (on Linux, Mac) don't change the directory. Only at the beginning of the file name are double backslashes interpreted differently then a single one (as a network path).

On the same subject as output file names, with MKVMerge (3.0.0 Windows) would it be possible to add some character to the default output file name?
As it is the default is exactly the same as the input file name, so if you inadvertently click to start the operation it will overwrite the source file.
So source is "video.mkv" new default output something like "video(2).mkv"

Thanks for this great app and .... HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Ah, ok. Learned something new again. Thx. I still think those double backslashes might confuse users. But it only happens under such unlikely circumstances that it’s probably not worth spending any effort on; unless you’re extremely bored of course.

Actually it won't -- mkvmerge will output an error message in such a case and will not start muxing. That being said:

I think this is a good idea, and here's a build that does exactly that: http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkv...-199-setup.exe

I noticed there is a GUI for mkvinfo, besides mmg are there other GUIs included?

Maybe you could add mkvinfo showing a file extension for each stream so applications don't need to maintain a dictionary, I'm not sure if my dictionary is up-to-date and bug free, where do I find which formats are currently supported by mkvextract?

Code:
Dim dic As New Dictionary(Of String, String)

dic("A_AAC") = "aac"
dic("A_AC3") = "ac3"
dic("A_DTS") = "dts"
dic("A_FLAC") = "flac"
dic("A_MPEG/L1") = "mpa"
dic("A_MPEG/L2") = "mp2"
dic("A_MPEG/L3") = "mp3"
dic("A_PCM/INT/LIT") = "wav"
dic("A_QUICKTIME") = "qdm"
dic("A_REAL") = "ra"
dic("A_TTA1") = "tta"
dic("A_VORBIS") = "ogg"
dic("A_WAVPACK4") = "wv"
dic("Attachment") = "att"
dic("Chapters") = "Chapters"
dic("S_TEXT/ASS") = "ass"
dic("S_TEXT/SSA") = "ssa"
dic("S_TEXT/USF") = "usf"
dic("S_TEXT/UTF8") = "srt"
dic("S_VOBSUB") = "idx"
dic("Tags") = "Tags"
dic("V_MPEG1") = "m1v"
dic("V_MPEG2") = "m2v"
dic("V_MPEG4/ISO/ASP") = "m4v"
dic("V_MPEG4/ISO/AVC") = "h264"
dic("V_MS/VFW/FOURCC") = "avi"
dic("V_REAL") = "rmvb"
dic("V_THEORA") = "ogg"

No. mmg & mkvinfo's GUI are the only ones.

mkvextract does not care about file extensions (neither does mkvmerge, btw, safe for a few exceptions -- VobSubs (the ".sub" for the ".idx") WavPack (the ".wvc" for the ".wv") etc.

There's no concise list of supported CodecIDs, but there's always the source code at e.g. http://www.bunkus.org/cgi-bin/gitweb...t/xtr_base.cpp :

Quote:
// Audio formats
else if (new_codec_id == MKV_A_AC3)
return new xtr_base_c(new_codec_id, new_tid, tspec, "Dolby Digital (AC3)");
else if (new_codec_id == MKV_A_EAC3)
return new xtr_base_c(new_codec_id, new_tid, tspec, "Dolby Digital Plus (EAC3)");
...
etc etc. The MKV_A_XYZ definitions are found in http://www.bunkus.org/cgi-bin/gitweb...mon/matroska.h

The xtr_xyz_c class determines the file type written. "xtr_base_c" means just the raw file, all the others use some kind of container format.

Quote:
dic("A_FLAC") = "flac"
FLAC can also be written into OggFlac files (though no one does that, I guess).

Quote:
dic("A_QUICKTIME") = "qdm"
Extraction of A_QUICKTIME and A_QUICKTIME/* tracks is not supported.

Quote:
dic("A_REAL") = "ra"
".ra" is usually used for older RealAudio type containers. mkvextract writes "Real Media File Format" containers both for audio and video tracks (and both can be put into the same file, like multiple VobSub tracks can be extracted into the same .idx file). ".rm" is usually used for these containers.

Quote:
dic("V_REAL") = "rmvb"
Same as above -- I guess that ".rm" is more common than ".rmvb", but I'm hardly the expert on Real files.

The rest looks ok, but I haven't checked whether or not you're missing CodecIDs.

And you didn't simply try clicking said icon? I guess I'm more curious than you are

Thanks for the info, your support is fantastic.

@MuLTiTaSK

All GUI's packaged with StaxRip I know about can be launched under Tools > Launch, I've added mkvinfo GUI. Since MeGUI's loosely coupled toolbox approach of doing a GUI has advantages I'm adding better support to perform individual tasks manually, automation is good but sometimes a task needs to be performed manually. I've added Tools > Advanced > Demuxing > Demux a mkv file using mkvextract and I will add as many manual tasks as I can.

I have 2 feature requests:

1.) a command line viewer in the header editor gui
2.) an option to extract all streams and/or all attachments of a file without having to write huuge command lines every time if you simply want to demux everything and don't need any custom filenames

Sorry, I will not implement this. Reason is that the header editor GUI does not call mkvpropedit for doing the work but actually writes to the file itself.

This may be implemented in the future.

Hi Mosu!

Instead of splitting only at times, Will be possible to add a feature for splitting at frames?(of course at keyframes) By specifiing the frames....'100,4500,8864...' or by reading a X264 .qp file ?

I see. The reason I'm asking is that I actually couldn't find any complete documentation on how to use it. This one explains the basic usage but I have no idea how the flags etc. are named so I end up being unable to set them.

That would be a huge time and hassle saver. Thank you for considering it.
