Software update: MKVToolNix 30.0.0




Moritz Bunkus has released version 30 of MKVToolNix. With this open source program, matroska files can be viewed, edited and converted. For example, audio tracks and subtitles can be added, deleted or just set as standard. MKVToolNix is ​​a collection of separate commandline tools, but a graphical user interface is also included. Downloads are available for Windows, various Linux distributions and macOS. The changelog for this issue looks like this:

New features and enhancements
mkvextract: WAV extractor: mkvextract will now write W64 files instead of
WAV files if the file name extension is .w64 or if the final file size is
bigger than 4 GB, the file size limit for WAV files. Implements # 2458 .
MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer: a new button was added next to the “destination
file “controls” Clicking it shows a menu with the ten most recently used
output directories. Selecting one of them will change the destination file
to the selected directory keeping the file name. Implements # 2468 .
MKVToolNix GUI: multiplexer (preferences): the ten most recently used values
for the “relative output directory” and “fixed output directory” settings
are now saved. The corresponding settings have been changed into combo boxes

durations can now be customized in the preferences.

copying the chosen entry and all of it’s children to another open editor

they’re closed. This ensures that the operating system actually writes all cached
data to disk preventing data loss in certain situations such as power
outages or buggy drivers in combination with suspending the computer. Fixes
# 2469 .
mkvmerge: AAC: under certain conditions 8 channel audio files were tasks for
7 channel ones.

will no longer cause a crash. Fixes # 2461 .

to the boost::tribool class. Fixes # 2460 .
