"One of the most important software for your Mac"

May 07, 2012  |  By HShin

 |  Version: MKVToolnix 5.5.0

Pros

Works just like its counterpart on Windows and Linux, right down to the UI.

Cons

None! *giant happy face*

Summary

If you don't know what MKV is, then stay the hell away from this software. And refrain from commenting. This thing doesn't pertain to you. If you own a bunch of Bluray movies that you want to backup to your hard drive, then consider MKVToolnix the quinessential program. It allows MKV splitting, joining, muxing, and all those cool stuff.

"picky and restrictive"

October 02, 2010  |  By nmithani1

 |  Version: MKVToolnix 4.3.0

Pros

There's no transcoding required.

Cons

An MKV might play any audio/video codec but this software is quite inflexible and sensitive, yielding frequent errors and issues with videos as simple as AVI's with AC3 or MP3 audio.

Summary

Since there's no transcoding required, one might as well try one's luck.

"FIve stars!"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Thanks so much to Bunkus for writing this incredibly useful utility. I had a bunch of H.264 .mp4 movies sitting on my hard drive that were unplayable on my JVC XV-bp1 blu-ray player. JVC just updated the bp1's firmware to fully support MKV playback. Now, thanks to MKVToolnix, I can watch movies from my USB flash drive --> bp1 in full, upscaled 1080p glory! Wonderful!!!

"Great, simple complete"

March 22, 2009  |  By jaredzusmc

 |  Version: MKVToolNix 2.5.3

Pros

Works great with multi audio/vido files in removing, muxing, appending etc. dif. vid/aud streams.
Easy to use
Can be used at a command line
allows for direct fine tuning

Cons

Still needs to expand the types of video/audio types/codecs that can be read.
NOT for everyone. Must have more than a working knowledge of what an audio or video stream is. Must know what combinations work best.

Summary

I recommend it completely. Best tool yet I've found in working directly with all streams in my .mkv files or grabbing multiple vid/aud streamins and muxing them together.
I think its an encoder's MUST Have.

"Not too bad, once you get the hang of it"

 |  Version: MKVToolNix 1.5.6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Dealing with command-line stuff usually isn't my style, but I like trying new things.
After poking at mkv for a few minutes I quickly found out that Matroska has many advantages over it's "competition," OGM. The main one of concern to me was that it supported AAC audio. This means that I could rip some DVD audio, transcode it into an AAC file and slap a corresponding video file in with it. Heck, using the new D-Subtitler I can even slap some subtitles in if I feel like it.
Yeah, just make sure you use the man command if you're not used to it. It might not be the best manual, but at least it gives some examples.

Oh, and for other users who say, "MKV? What the heck?" you can play it back just fine using VLC (Snag it on Version Tracker or from http://www.videolan.org)

"If that's the future, I quit now"

August 20, 2005  |  By welcome--2008

 |  Version: MKVToolNix 1.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Great. A new multimedia container and the author provides tools. Only problem is, you must first spend at least several hours before you can do anything at all, or even understand, and then ... it leads nowhere. Things happen in the terminal. And you'd think these programmers would tell you what to do? Nope. You're supposed to know what they know. So if you have a .mkv file and you don't know what to do with it, you must be an idiot. Or one of these lazy Mac users who think the data world should be user-friendly.
