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:

* mkvmerge: MPEG TS/teletext enhancement: included the teletext page number in
the JSON/verbose identification output as track property "teletext_page". *
mkvmerge: MPEG TS bug fix: the "text_subtitles" property of the JSON/verbose
identification modes was always set to true for all subtitle tracks, even for
those that aren't text subtitles (VobSub, PG). * mkvmerge: MPEG TS/teletext
enhancement: if a teletext track contains multiple teletext pages then mkvmerge
will now recognize all of those pages as separate tracks to merge instead of
only merging the first page. See #1662. * mkvmerge: MPEG TS/teletext
enhancement: mkvmerge will now ignore obviously bogus PTS values for teletext
tracks and use PTS from earlier audio or video packets instead. See #1662. *
mkvmerge: MPEG TS/teletext bug fix: the language code signaled in the MPEG TS
PMT is taken into account when selecting the character encoding to use during
decoding of the teletext subtitles, not just the "national character set" stored
in the teletext page headers. For example, a German teletext page may signal
"national character set" 0 (English) whereas it's actually 4 (German). See
#1662. * mkvmerge: teletext decoding bug fix: fixed dropping of certain non-
ASCII characters in rare circumstances due to wrong filtering of already UTF-8
encoded strings. * mkvmerge: MPEG TS reader enhancement: teletext tracks of type
5 (hearing impaired) are recognized as subtitles, too. Implements #1662. *
MKVToolNix GUI: merge tool enhancement: characters that aren't valid in path
names are automatically removed from the output file name. Implements #1647. *
mkvmerge: AVI reader bug fix: fixed reading files where the file ends in the
middle of an audio chunk. Fixes #1657. * mkvextract: new feature: added support
for extracting WebVTT subtitles. Implements the extraction part of #1592. *
mkvmerge: new feature: added support for reading WebVTT subtitles from WebVTT
and Matroska files. Implements the merge part of #1592. * mkvmerge: enhancement:
when reading Matroska files not created by mkvmerge that contain chapters the
existing edition UIDs and chapter UIDs are removed and random ones created. This
is necessary as not only HandBrake but other tools assign sequential numbers
starting at 1 for each file. Therefore there are two chapter entries with the
UID 1, two with the UID 2 etc. and those should, strictly speaking, be treated
as if they were a single chapter whereas the user expects those entries to stay
separate entries. * MKVToolNix GUI: new feature: added an option in the
preferences ("Merge" → "Output") for controlling whether or not the GUI clears
the "output file name" input upon removal of the last file. * MKVToolNix GUI:
new feature: added an option in the preferences ("Merge" → "Default values") for
controlling whether or not the GUI clears the "file title" input upon removal of
the last file. * mkvmerge: bug fix: mkvmerge will no longer abort reading a
Matroska file with a structural error right before the first cluster. Fixes
#1654. * mkvmerge: enhancement: added the muxing date in both local time zone
and UTC to verbose/JSON identification outputs (keys "date_local" and
"date_utc", formatted after ISO 8601) when identifying Matroska files. *
mkvmerge: enhancement: added the minimum timestamp for each track in
verbose/JSON identification outputs (key "minimum_timestamp") when identifying
Matroska files. At most the first ten seconds are probed; if no block is found
for a track within that range then the key is not output for the track. Also
added "muxing_application" and "writing_application" to the "container" section
of the output. Currently those are only set for Matroska files. * MKVToolNix
GUI: merge tool change: attachments from source files have been moved from the
"Tracks, chapters, tags and attachments" list on the "sources" tab to a new list
on the "attachments" tab. That way all existing attachments and all the ones to
newly add will be shown in a single tab. This makes it easier to decide which
attachments will have to be added and which can be removed. * MKVToolNix: merge
tool bug fix: when adding playlists the GUI won't ask the user whether or not to
scan if there's only a single playlist in that directory. * mkvmerge: bug fix:
AVC/h.264: fixed handling of interlaced frames with bottom field first.
