MKVToolNix – Matroska tools

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.

Features include:

  • MKVToolnix GUI – a Qt GUI for mkvmerge and a successor of mmg.
  • mkvmerge – merges multimedia streams into a Matroska file.
  • mkvinfo – lists all elements contained in a Matroska file.
  • mkvextract – extracts specific parts from a Matroska file to other formats. Extract audio, subtitle and video tracks, chapters, tags, CUE sheets, attachments and timecodes from Matroska files.
  • mkvpropedit – analyze and modify some Matroska file properties. It outputs a list of tracks and provides information about the codecs used in them.
