MKVToolNix overview

MKVtoolnix is a set of tools to create, alter, and inspect Matroska files under OS X, Linux and other Unices, and Windows. They do for Matroska what the OGMtools do for the OGM format and then some.

Since May 1st 2003, the Matroska libraries themselves and my Matroska tools are officially released as a first public beta version. Although all of them are still under heavy development, I urge you to download the software, test it and report any errors you encounter to me. I'm always grateful for good bug reports because I miss so many mistakes and you guys normally find them. Your feedback is important to me :)

Note: While the software is classified as free, it is actually donationware. Please consider making a donation to help support development.

What’s new in version 70.0.0

Updated on Aug 15 2022

New features and enhancements:
  • MKVToolNix GUI: the user can now control where the job queue files & the preferences INI file are stored via environment variables. If set, the variable `MKVTOOLNIX_GUI_STATE_DIR` can point to a directory where the GUI stores both the job queue sub-directory and the preferences INI file. If you only want to relocate the preferences INI file, you can store the desired file name for the INI file in `MKVTOOLNIX_GUI_CONFIG_FILE`. Implements #3382.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: when adding directories via drag & drop/copy & paste the GUI will now offer the user the option to create one multiplex settings tab per directory & adding all files from that directory to the corresponding, newly created tab. Implements #3371.
Bug fixes:
  • mkvmerge: AV1 OBU parser: fixed identifying files that only contain single frame. Fixes #3380.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: when reading color parameters from identified files that are floating point numbers (minimum/maximum luminance, projection pitch/roll/yaw) the numbers will be formatted in floating-point notation instead of scientific notation as mkvmerge only supports the former. Fixes #3368.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: color parameters that are floating point numbers (minimum/maximum luminance, projection pitch/roll/yaw) will only be set to a value during identification if the identification actually contains the property, and not to 0 anymore if it doesn't.
Build system changes:
  • Several merge requests where accepted that improve compilation on MSYS2 on Windows. Note that this build type isn't supported.

Seems many people didn't know. If you mac won't open the file, just hold down 'control' while clicking the app, then choose 'open'. it will then always open.

Was it NECESSARY to drop down the support of High Sierra? On WHAT has 10.4 and 5 more 'power'? For all what I know, High Sierra is still now the best 'professional OS X'; later ones are 'gimmicky' iOS prone downgrades adding funky 'Gadgets' (Gadget is a name! Of the French company who built the statue of libery in front of the New York harbour!) of no-use by a serious 'power-user', in fact NOT supporting useful utilities like FinderPop, exempli gratia!) GRRRRRR!!!!!

Doesn't start on 10.11 here (no crash on startup). The application is about 20 MB smaller than 29.0.0 and that sounds strange.
