Summary     : Matroska container manipulation utilities
Description :
Mkvtoolnix is a set of utilities to mux and demux audio, video and subtitle
streams into and from Matroska containers.

Update Information:

Changes since 8.9.0:  * mkvmerge: bug fix: regression in v9.0.0: the text
subtitle packetizer was wrongfully assuming an encoding of UTF-8 if none was
given instead of assuming the system's encoding. Fixes #1639. * mkvmerge: bug
fix: if too many chapters had been generated with --generate-chapters then
mkvmerge created a bogus entry in the meta seek element and did not actually
write the chapters to the file. * mkvmerge: bug fix: the DTS packetizer was
setting the number of channels wrong sometimes when reducing to the DTS core. It
was using the number of channels including the extensions instead of the
channels of the core only. * build system: implemented support for explicit pre-
compiled headers for Linux and Mac OS. * mkvmerge: bug fix: fixed two more
issues in the conversion of teletext subtitles to SRT subtitles. * mkvmerge:
MP4/QuickTime reader: audio tracks with the FourCC 'lpcm' are muxed as
A_PCM/INT/LIT instead of A_QUICKTIME. * mkvmerge: bug fix: MP4/QuickTime reader:
audio tracks can contain two instances of certain header fields (channel count,
bits/sample & channel, sample rate) in the STSD atom: one instance in the
version 0 header and one in the version 2 header parts. So far mkvmerge has used
those from the version 0 header only and ignored the ones from the version 2
header. This has been changed to match the behavior of other players and MP4
readers like ffmpeg. If the STSD atom contains a version 2 structure then the
fields from it will be used. Otherwise the fields from the version 0 part will
be used. Fixes #1633. * all: new feature: added a new translation of both the
programs and the man pages to Korean by Potato (see AUTHORS). * MKVToolNix GUI:
chapter editor enhancement: added a button next to the 'segment UID' controls
that enable the user to select a Matroska file. The GUI reads that file's
segment UID and enters its value into the input field. * mkvmerge: bug fix:
fixed two issues in the conversion of teletext subtitles to SRT subtitles. *
MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool (playlist selection dialog) enhancement: the playlist
items are sorted by their position within the playlist by default. * MKVToolNix
GUI: merge tool (playlist selection dialog) enhancement: double-clicking on a
playlist will select and add that playlist. * mkvmerge: enhancement: added the
number of bits per sample to the verbose/JSON identification output for FLAC
files. * mkvextract: bug fix: fixed the duplication of VPS, SPS, PPS and SEI
NALUs when extracting h.265/HEVC tracks. See #1076 and #1621.  * mkvmerge: bug
fix: reverted the patch by Vladimír Pilný that made the h.265/HEVC not store SEI
NALUs with the frames during muxing. It was supposed to prevent having the SEI
NALUs present twice when extracting HEVC due to some SEI information also being
stored in the codec private data, but it dropped a lot of other SEI NALUs
irrevocably. Fixes #1621. * mkvmerge: bug fix: the --sub-charset option is now
ignored for text subtitle files that start with a byte-order mark (BOM) bringing
the behavior in line with the documentation. Fixes #1620. * mkvextract: new
feature: implemented the extraction of Big Endian PCM (codec ID A_PCM/INT/BIG)
to WAV files. The content will be byte-swapped into Little Endian PCM in the
process. * mkvmerge: enhancement: Big Endian PCM tracks will now be byte-swapped
into Little Endian PCM, and the codec ID A_PCM/INT/LIT will be used. This was
done due to a lot of players not supporting Big Endian PCM inside Matroska. *
mkvmerge, MKVToolNix GUI: new feature: added switches (»--generate-chapters« and
»--generate-chapter-name-template«) and their corresponding UI items for
generating chapters while muxing. Two modes are currently supported: »when-
appending« which creates one chapter at the beginning and an additional one each
time a file is appended and »interval:…« which generates chapters in fixed
intervals. Implements mkvmerge's and the GUI's part of #1586. * MKVToolNix GUI:
job queue enhancement: completed jobs will now be removed from the queue
automatically on exit if the job has been added more than 14 days ago in order
not to let the queue grow arbitrarily large. This feature can be turned off and
the number of days can be adjusted in the preferences. * mkvpropedit, MKVToolNix
GUI's header editor: bug fix: fixed the handling of files where the last level 1
element has an unknown size. The programs will now either fix this element to
have a known size or abort the process with an appropriate error message but
without modifying the file. Fixes #1601. * mkvextract: enhancement: when
extracting chapters in the simple format the user can use the new option
--simple-language …« for selecting the chapter names that are output. Normally
the first chapter name found in each atom is used. With this option mkvextract
looks for a chapter name whose language matches the specified one. Implements
the feature enhancement part of #1610. * mkvextract: several issues regarding
the extraction of chapters in the simple format have been fixed: if multiple
names with different languages were present then an entry had been written for
each name; the total number of entries written was wrong; the wrong entries were
written. The new code only writes the first name found from the top-most chapter
atoms of all editions. Chapters flagged as hidden or as not enabled are not
extracted at all. Fixes the bug part of #1610. * MKVToolNix GUI: new chapter
editor feature: added an option to multiply all chapter timecodes by a factor to
the "additional modifications" dialog. Implements #1609.
