Tool: MKVExcisor


up to now I always used MKV-Cleaver to extract streams from mkv-files.
But there are a few things that I did not like at all:

1) MKVCleaver does not know AV1 and eac3 Codec. On extract the streams get the fileextension ".undefined"
2) a bug when batchextract subtitles: tracks 2-9 are always missing.
3) import of files could be faster if not using sqlite...
4) who needs extrakt by tracknumber? I would say extract by language is more useful
5) I need outputdirectory selecting switching option
6) Language Filipino seems to be unknown, language is titled as "fil"

Because bugfixing and further development of MKVCleaver obviously stopped I just wrote a small tool by myself.

If you recognize similarities to MKV-Cleaver ... You are absolute right. Just consider this tool as small brother of mkvcleaver.

Its still in beta stage so there may be a few bugs, but I consider the tool as usable.
Feel free to test and use.

One thing I dont understand is that a check at Virustotal results in warnings by 3 of 58 scanners. I have no idea why, my sourcecode is clean.
If you want, you can also compile it by yourself to be sure - or run the tool in a safe enviroment.

If you want your settings to be saved, the tool needs write permission to its folder. Also of course you need mkvextract.exe (32 Bit) and permission to write into your destinationfolder.
Remember that if you have ransomwareprotection enabled (which you should enable).

If I ever stop updating this tool, you can still try to download newest mediainfo.dll (32bit) and replace the old one (make backup). There is a good chance that the mkvexcisor will still work (better) with newer version of mediainfo.dll.

initial release Win32 portable: (7-zip, 3MB)
