Create, alter and inspect Matroska files
The user interface of the program is plain and simple. You can input videos by using the file browser or the "drag and drop" method (batch processing is supported).
So, you can select and arrange tracks, chapters and tags. But you can also configure general track, format specific and extra options.
You can edit the track name, tags and timecodes, as well as select the language, default and forced track flag, and set the output filename.
Furthermore, you can change the aspect ratio, display width and height, charset, cropping, cues, compression, user-defined options, and more.
Moreover, you can add attachments and modify their name, description, MIME type and attachment style, as well as configure global options when it comes to the file or segment title and tag file.
MKVToolnix also lets you enable splitting mode (according to size, duration or timecodes), input segment UIDs, previous and next segment UID, as well as select language, charset and cue name format for each chapter. Last but not least, you can use a chapter editor, copy information to clipboard, and more.
The program takes up a low amount of system resources and contains a well-written help file. We haven't come across any issues during our tests. However, MKVToolnix could definitely use some improvements in the interface department. Otherwise, we strongly recommend it to all users.

What's New in This Release:
- mkvmerge: bug fix: mkvmerge was sometimes dropping lines from teletext subtitles read from MPEG transport streams.
- mkvmerge: bug fix: The PCM packetizer was producing wrong track statistics by disregarding the last packet's duration when reading PCM data from packaged sources (Matroska, MP4 files).
- build system: enhancement: configure will look for a system version of the pugixml library and use that instead of the bundled version if it is found.
- mkvextract: bug fix for chapter & tag extraction: If locale is set to a non-UTF locale (including C or POSIX) then no XML data was output at all even if the XML data contained ASCII characters only. This also fixes mkvextract writing two BOMs when extracting tags with the »--redirect-output« option on Windows.
