mkvtoolnix 4.1.1 released

Current version is 4.1.1; see http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.ph...16#post1414216


Hey users,

I'm proud to present you version 2.0.0 of mkvtoolnix. This release contains new features like support for AVC/h.264 elementary streams (both single files and from AVIs); proper support for MPEG-1/-2 videos without the ugly blockiness; support for extracting MPEG-1/-2 video tracks; use of "simple blocks" with subtitles has been fixed; tons of usability enhancements to mmg; and the usual list of smaller bug fixes.

A special "thanks" to all the people who extensively tested my h.264 support and provided a lot of insight and sample files.

The usual links...
...to the home page:

...the source code:

...the Windows binaries (2000/XP or later):

The binaries for the various Linux versions that I provide have already been updated and are available from the download page: http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkv...downloads.html

Here's the ChangeLog since 1.8.1:

2007-01-12 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mmg: new feature: Added another tab for each track in which the user can add arbitrary track options.
* mkvextract: enhancement: mkvextract will now also print which container format it uses for each track.
* mkvextract: new feature: Added support for extracting MPEG-1/2 video to MPEG-1/2 program streams.
* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed the file type detection for MPEG-1/2 ES files with a single frame inside.

2007-01-11 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: bug fix: MPEG-1/2 video: The sequence and GOP headers are not removed from the bitstream anymore. This should fix the blockiness if the sequence headers change mid-stream. Fix for Bugzilla bug #167.

2007-01-09 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: enhancement: mkvmerge now handles the first frames in AVC/h.264 ES streams properly, especially for files for which it did not find a key frame at the beginning in earlier versions.

2007-01-08 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: enhancement: Improved the detection of AVC/h.264 ES streams with garbage at the beginning.
* mmg: enhancements to the job management dialog: There's a minimum width for the columns. The "up" and "down" buttons are disabled if all entries are selected. Pressing "Ctrl-A" selects all entries.
* mmg: enhancements: "File -> New" will also focus the "input" tab.

2007-01-07 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mmg: enhancements: The job manager can be opened with "Ctrl-J". The last directory from which a file is added is saved even if the file identification failed. The automatically generated output file name uses the extension ".mka" if no video track is found and ".mks" if neither a video nor an audio track is found in the first file.
* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed the aspect ratio extraction for raw AVC/h.264 ES tracks.
* mkvmerge: bug fix: If a raw AVC/h.264 ES file does not start with a key frame then all the frames before the first key frame are skipped, and mkvmerge does not abort anymore.

2007-01-05 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: bug fix: AVC/h.264 ES parser: Fixed wrong NALU size length information in the AVCC.
* mkvmerge: bug fix: AVC/h.264 ES parser: Fixed the decision if a NALU belongs to a previous frame or starts a new one.

2007-01-04 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mmg: enhancement: Added an input for the new "NALU size length" parameter.
* mkvmerge: bug fix: The NALU size length can be overridden for AVC/h.264 elementary streams. It defaults to 2 which might not be enough for larger frames/slices.

2007-01-03 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: bug fix: Support for AVC/h.264 elementary streams with short markers (0x00 0x00 0x01 instead of 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x01).
* mkvmerge: Removed the "--engage allow_avc_in_vfw_mode" hack.
* mkvmerge: enhancement: Added "x264" to the list of recognized FourCCs for AVC/h.264 video in AVI and Matroska files.
* mkvmerge: new feature: Added support for proper muxing of AVC/h.264 tracks in Matroska files that were stored in the MS compatibility mode (CodecID V_MS/VFW/FOURCC instead of V_MPEG4/ISO/AVC).
* mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed invalid memory access in the AVC ES parser.

2007-01-02 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: new feature: Added support for proper muxing of AVC/h.264 tracks in AVI files.

2007-01-01 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: new feature: Added support for reading AVC/h.264 elementary streams.

2006-12-30 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mmg: enhancement: All inputs and controls are cleared and deactivated if the user select "File -> New".
* mmg: enhancement: The user can switch between the "generic" and "format specific options" pages even if no track is selected.

2006-12-29 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: bug fix: mkvmerge would not write frame durations if "--engage use_simpleblock" was used resulting in unplayable and unextractable subtitle tracks.

2006-12-28 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: bug fix: Added a workaround for RealAudio tracks for which the key frame flag is never set.

2006-12-27 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mmg: bug fix: Fixed a segfault that occured if the user had a track selected and its the file the track was read from is removed.
* mmg: bug fix: Fixed the behaviour of a couple of ComboBoxes on Windows after selecting "File -> New". E.g. if the user selected "700M" in the "split after this size" ComboBox, selected "File -> New" and selected "700M" again, then it would not show up in the command line window until he selected another option and returned to the "700M" afterwards.

Have a nice weekend
