MKVToolNix v36.0.0 released

Here’s another small summery bug fix release for MKVToolNix, v36.0.0. Nothing major’s changed; just a couple of fixes here & there.

There’ve been no changes regarding packaging since the previous release.

You can download the source code or one of the binaries. The Windows and macOS binaries as well as the Linux AppImage are available already. The other Linux binaries are stil being built and will be available over the course of the next couple of hours.

Here are the NEWS since the previous release:

New features and enhancements

  • mkvmerge: mkvmerge now allows appending AV1, VP8, VP9, H.264/AVC and
    H.265/HEVC tracks whose pixel dimensions differ. Implements #2582.

Bug fixes

  • source code: fixed building with Boost 1.71.0. Fixes #2599.
  • all: fixed the spelling of the H.264 & H.265 codec names.
  • mkvmerge: Blu-ray MPLS handling: mkvmerge will now find corresponding M2TS
    files even if the clip_codec_identifier playlist item field is not set to
    M2TS in the MPLS file. Fixes #2601.
  • mkvmerge: fixed handling of text files that use both DOS-style and
    Unix-style line endings resulting in problems such as text subtitle files
    not being parsed correctly. Fixes #2594.

Have fun :)

    I am having an issue with MKVToolNix GUI… After or during converting a file, the program occasionally shuts down. When it shuts down, it no longer works. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the application with no luck. I also tried older versions and that did not help. I discovered that in order to get the program working, I had to go to the c:\users\jon\appdata\local\temp folder and delete all the json files in there. I noticed that when the program works fine, it automatically deleted the json files. But if it does not delete the files, the program will not launch…

    I am using Windows 10 64-bit with 16GB RAM and a AMD Ryzen 9 3900X CPU and a MSI GTX1660Ti GPU. Thank you for your assistance.
