MKVToolNix is a set of open source tools for the Matroska media container format by Moritz Bunkus including mkvmerge.
With these tools one can get information about (mkvinfo) Matroska files, extract tracks/data from (mkvextract) Matroska files and create (mkvmerge) Matroska files from other media files.
Matroska is a multimedia file format aiming to become the new container format for the future.
