MKVToolNix v5.0.1 released


I’ve released mkvtoolnix v5.0.1. It’s a release with a few improvements/bug fixes and one important fix for a regression introduced in v5.0.0 regarding PGS subtitles.

There were no changes that concern package maintainers.

Here are the usual links: the home page, the source code and the Windows installer and 7zip archive.

All of the binaries that I provide myself are already available.

Here’s the full ChangeLog since release 5.0.0:

  • 2011-10-09 Moritz Bunkus <>
    • Released v5.0.1.

    • mkvmerge: enhancement: Implemented support for yet another way of storing EAC3 and DTS in MPEG transport streams.

    • mkvinfo: bug fix: Track information was not reset when opening more than one file in the GUI.
  • 2011-10-03 Moritz Bunkus <>
    • mkvmerge: bug fix: The PGS subtitle output module was not outputting any packet in certain cases due to uninitialized variables.
  • 2011-09-27 Moritz Bunkus <>
    • mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed mkvmerge not finding any track in TS streams whose first PMT packet could not be parsed (e.g. invalid CRC).
    • mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed detection of TS streams that only contain one PAT or PMT packet within the first few KB but no others within the first 10 MB.

Have fun.
