How to Install MKVToolNix 9.8.0 on Ubuntu 16.04, 16.10

     MKVtoolnix is a set of tools to create, alter, split, join and inspect Matroska files(mkv). With these tools one can get information about (mkvinfo) Matroska files, extract tracks/data from (mkvextract) Matroska files and create (mkvmerge) Matroska files from other media files. Matroska is a multimedia file format aiming to become THE new container format for the future. Use MKVCleaver or gMKVExtractGUI to extract/demultiplex mkv video and audio files.


MKVToolNix 9.8.0 changelog

  •  mkvmerge: VobSub in Matroska: mkvmerge will now create and use a default
      index for VobSub tracks read from Matroska files that are missing their
      CodecPrivate element (which normally contains said index).
  • GUI: added checks for several common problems with the installation. These
      checks will be executed when the GUI starts, and any problems will be
      reported to the user.
  • mkvmerge: added the ISO 639-2 language codes "qaa" and "qad" (both are
      titled "reserved for local use") as both are used often in France. See #1848
      for more information.
  • mkvmerge: the JSON identification result now includes a track's codec delay
      if set (only for Matroska source files). The JSON schema version has been
      bumped to 6.
  • mkvmerge: MPEG TS: added a workaround for files where the subtitle packets
      are multiplexed properly, but where their timestamps are way off from the
      audio and video timestamps.
  • mkvmerge: added support for Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) subtitles
      (CodecID `S_DVBSUB`). They can be read from MPEG transport streams and from
      Matroska files.
  • See changelog for more details
