What's new in MKVToolnix 7.5.0:
- mkvmerge: bug fix: If the target drive is full then a nicer error message is output instead of simply crashing due to an uncaught exception.
- mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed reading MPEG transport streams in which all PATs and/or PMTs have CRC errors. Fixes #1100.
- all: bug fix: Re-wrote the whole checksum calculation code. This lead to a fix for the Adler32 checksum algorithm that was triggered under certain circumstances. Adler32 is used in mkvinfo's output (e.g. in summary mode or if checksums are activated), in the h.265/HEVC bitstream and TrueAudio (TTA) file headers.
- mkvmerge: bug fix: fixed handling of HE-AACv2 with object type Â»parametric stereoÂ«.

Comprises of several command-line and graphical tools
The main tools are mkvmerge, mkvextract, mkvinfo, mmg and mkvpropedit. While the mkvmerge component can be used for joining two or more multimedia streams into a single Matroska file, the mkvextract tool will split MKV files into separate streams.
Supports a wide range of audio and subtitle formats
In addition, the mkvextract program can be used to extract audio, subtitle and video tracks, chapters, tags, CUE sheets, attachments and timecodes from Matroska files. At the moment, it supports the following track types: H.264/AVC, RealVideo, Theora, VP8/VP9, MP2, MP3, AC3, raw PCM, AAC, OGG Vorbis, TrueAudio, ALAC, FLAC, WavPack, Opus, SSA, ASS, Kate, VobSub, and USF.
Edit the properties of MKV files or view detailed information
The mkvinfo program is capable of displaying detailed information about all the elements that are included in a Matroska file. It outputs a list of tracks and provides information about the codecs used in them.
Advanced users can use the mkvpropedit tool to edit the properties of a MKV file without a complete remux. There’s also a GUI front-end for the mkvextract tool, called mmg, designed to used for editing a chapters and headers.
Supported operating systems
MKVToolnix is a platform-independent project that supports Linux (Gentoo, Arch Linux, CentOS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu, Mandriva, openSUSE, Slackware, Zenwalk), BSD (FreeBSD, NetBSD), Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows operating systems.
The truth is that you won’t find a better application for working with MKV files under a Linux-based operating system. It does for Matroska files what the OGMtools application does for OGM files.
