Does anyone know or heard of a .mkv (matroska) file editor? I’ve been looking on the net for months but still cant find anything worth while. Even VirtualDub Mod doesnt seem to detect a video stream in .mkv files.
Anyone please, help.
I’m quoting ChristianHJW from the Matroska team:
“VirtualdubMod is more or less abandoned, even if there has been a bug fix release lately. As Virtualdub and VirtualdubMod are based on the old, outdated VFW (Video for Windows) mediaframework from M$, it can not work as a basis for a MKV editor (no support for VBR/VFR/etc.).
It is therefore not recommended to create or edit MKV files with VDM, the tool of choice is mkvtoolnix from http://mkvtoolnix.matroska.org , or better mkvmerge and the GUI mmg.exe."
His post was in 2005, so it’s possible things have changed since.
If you go to http://www.matroska.org/downloads/windows.html and scroll about half-way down the page you’ll find a list of editors.
BTW, you won’t be able to edit the file if you’re not able to play it in the first place. Make sure you have the proper filters and/or codecs for that (also listed on that same page). If you’re wondering what codec your mkv file is in, use videoinspector.
I’m looking for the same as well. I’ve been doing a little research to learn how to remove the very annoying Cinavia DRM and so far the only thing I’ve found is this www.mkvsplitter.com/mkv-editor.html
But I have not tested it. If you find anything please let me know, thanks.
