MKVToolNix v71.1 released


I’ve just released a new minor update, v71.1. It solely fixes the “configure” script not having the correct requirements wrt. to libEBML & libMatroska. It also fixes several issues in the XML DTDs, but those aren’t actually used in MKVToolNix itself. Functionality wise v71.1 is the same as v71.0. If you aren’t a Linux package maintainer, feel free to skip this 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:

Bug fixes

  • Chapters DTD: added the new edition & chapter elements from Matroska v5.
  • Chapters DTD: fixed EditionUID being mandatory. mkvmerge can auto-generate it if it’s missing from the XML file.
  • Chapters DTD: fixed the example-chapters-1.xml not validating against the DTD.
  • Chapters DTD: corrected the old name EditionManaged to EditionFlagOrdered.
  • Chapters DTD: fixed ChapLanguageIETF missing its element declaration & ChapterLanguage being required.
  • XML DTDs: fixed elements representing binary data not allowing the format attribute.

Build system changes

  • bug fix: configure accidentally tested for libEBML ≥ 2.0.0 & libMatroska ≥ 2.0.0, even though the actual requirements are 1.4.4 & 1.7.1 respectively.

Have fun 😁

    Had problems with v71.0 and 71.1.
    Problem only started after several weeks of usage without issues.
    The problem – when “Add Source File” is clicked, it freezes and no files can be added.
    After program is closed down and restarted, the problem still exist.
    * Tried uninstalling and re-installing the program. But problem still exist
    My system – Windows 11, 12th Gen Intel i5, 64bit
