MKVToolNix 1.6.0 has been released

The current version is 1.6.0 Direct download link to the Windows Unicode installer: http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkv....6.0-setup.exe Release notes can be found on page 11.

(Yes, yet another thread. But searching in threads sucks... You just don't find the kind of information you're looking for. So here it goes.)

Hey guys,

It's been over two and a half months since the last release, and that's quite a long time. But here it is: MKVToolNix v1.5.0.

This release contains a couple of new features (splitting after arbitrary timecodes and muxing of USF subtitles) and tons of bug fixes.

The usual links to...
...the home page:
http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/
...the sources:
http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkv...-1.5.0.tar.bz2
...the Windows Unicde binaries:
http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkv....5.0-setup.exe
...the Windows non-Unicode binaries:
http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkv....5.0-setup.exe

The other binaries are all available from the home page.

Here's the ChangeLog of what I've done in those past ten weeks:
-----------------------------------------
2005-06-26 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: bug fix: The track language read from old Matroska files was wrongfully set to "und" if it was not written although the specs say that "eng" is the default value.
* mkvmerge: bug fix: USF subtitles: If identical tags were nested (e.g. "font") and both were closed right after each other then the result looked like "</font/>".
* mkvmerge: bug fix: Native MPEG-4 was not working if read from OGM files.

2005-06-24 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mmg: new feature: Added an input box for mkvmerge's new "split after these timecodes" feature.

2005-06-16 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: bug fixes: Improved the native MPEG-4 generation a lot (thanks to Haali for testing and pushing me). The codec version string inside the MPEG-4 initialization data is now checked if it indicates "DivX packed bitstream" and changed to not indicate it anymore.

2005-06-07 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mmg: bug fix: If mmg was minimized when it was closed (e.g. with Windows' "Show desktop" function) then it didn't show up after a restart and could only be shown by maximizing it.
* mkvmerge: bug fix: If a OGM style chapter file contains empty chapter names ('CHAPTER01NAME=' without something after the '=') then this chapter's timecode is used as the name instead of aborting.

2005-06-05 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: new feature: Added splitting after specific timecodes.

2005-06-04 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge, mkvinfo, mkvextract: bug fix: Inifite sized segments were not handled correctly.

2005-05-23 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mmg: bug fix: On Windows mmg could be crashed by adding a file and clicking into the empty space in the "track" selection box. Fixes Anthill bug 133.

* mkvextract: new feature: Implemented the extraction of USF subtitles.
* mkvmerge: new feature: Implemented the muxing of USF subtitles.

2005-05-17 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvextract: bug fix: The MPEG packets are now padded to 2048 byte boundaries as some programs require them to be. Patch by Mike Matsnev (see AUTHORS).

2005-05-07 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvinfo: bug fix: Removed the restriction of max. ten levels of nested elements.
* mmg: bug fix: If splitting was enabled and "splitting by time" selected and the user chose "new" from the "File" menu then "splitting by time" was not selectable anymore. This happened only on Windows. Fixes Anthill bug 131.

2005-05-05 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvextract: bug fix: Use the native newline style when extracting text subtitles (\r\n on Windows and \n on all other systems).
* mkvextract: bug fix: SSA/ASS text was missing in the output if the "Format=" line contained newlines at the end of the CodecPrivate data (e.g. our old Mew Mew sample file).

2005-05-03 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: new feature: Added support for the hapterSegmentUID element.

2005-04-29 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: bug fix: Support WAV files that use other RIFF chunks than the usual "fmt " followed by "data".

2005-04-18 Moritz Bunkus <moritz@bunkus.org>
* mkvmerge: bug fix: Remuxing MPEG1/2 tracks resulted in a failing "assert(0)".
-----------------------------------------

Have fun

Mosu

Well, once extracted, subs from the vobsub file looks corrupted, like on the screen


when they should look like this


If someone want the subs, here they are: idx and sub . When these files are in mkv, they look fine, but when the're out, some look like in the first picture (and subresync doesn't render them at all). Sometimes it happens there are 0 corrupted subs, and sometimes there are many of them.

And subrip displays them somewhat like this

hello.
I have times a question.
is it possible that you contain the support for demux mkv files which support the 'mpeg1 mpeg2 mpeg4(sp/asp) mpeg4(avc)'-steams.

Ok, thanks for the files. I'll try to find out what's wrong, but I can't give you a time frame.

No, sorry (not enough time and I don't consider it important enough).

I think extracting the streams is important. However, if i extract an AVC-Stream (raw mode) it seems to be damaged. Would this need much time to fix?

Anyways, you do a great job!

Yes, it would require writing a MP4 muxer. I don't have the time to do that.

you could ask the people of mp4box.
I already was to support them said them to support 'avc in mkv'

http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.ph...4&page=5&pp=20

that would accelerate some.

There already is an mp4 muxer: mp4box. However it crashes when trying to mux an avc stream which is extracted with mkvextract. But i don't know if the bug is in mkvextract or mp4box.

Not for raw streams, of course, but raw streams miss the timecode information. So you won't be satisfied with that either, I guess.

The reason why raw streams don't work right now is that I have no clue about how raw AVC streams are supposed to look like. Are they simply the avcc atom followed by the data from all frames? That's what mkvextract can already do, but obviously the other tools don't like this. So if you want to help me then find me some specs on AVC elementary streams.

Maybe this document will help: AVC File Format AVC File Format (Study Text of ISO/IEC 14496-15/FCD)

(38.1 Elementary Stream Structure)

Sorry. mkvmerge compares the complete codec private data. If they don't match, then it refuses to concatenate those streams. mkvmerge cannot know whether differences in the codec private are important or not. Most of the time the codec private data contains stuff the codec needs for initialization of its decoding routines like... uhm... huffman tables or whatever. If you concatenate two streams with different decoding initialization data then your results will at best be weird and unplayable at worst. That's why mkvmerge doesn't allow this.

The data your mp4 thingy shows is not even stored there if I'm not mistaken...

However, you could do the following. Run "mkvmerge -v -v -v -v -o whatever.mkv credits.mp4 > credits.txt" and "mkvmerge -v -v -v -v -o whatever.mkv movie.mp4 > movie.txt". This will create two .txt files. Compress those with e.g. ZIP or RAR and upload that archive to my FTP server, please. During this process mkvmerge dumps the codec private data (it does that only when reading MP4 files for debugging purposes); maybe I can see what the differnces are in your case.

Ae, just deleted the two streams.
I did use Yamb for joining and then mmg for muxing.

Thanks anyway

hubert

PS : tell me if I can still extract infos from the mkv
