MX 17 Repository: The MKVToolnix Thread

#1

Post by Stevo » Tue Oct 30, 2018 9:11 pm

We now have the latest mkvtoolnix-28.2.0 release, backported from upstream Debian, in our test repository. It should also bring in updates of libmatroska and libebml.

Those that want to use the GUI should install mkvtoolnix-gui.
Matroska is a new multimedia container format, based on EBML (Extensible Binary Meta Language), which is a kind of binary XML.

The mmg tool is a graphical user interface for the mkvmerge program, which allow one to create Matroska files from other formats.

This package also contains a graphical version of the mkvinfo tool, which allow one to get information about a Matroska file.

Please let us know how it's working so we can move it to main if it's qualified.

Enabled the test repo to check. It should, but it doesn't.

mkvtoolnix (version 25.0.0-1~mx17+1) will be upgraded to version 28.2.0-1~mx17+1
mkvtoolnix-gui (version 25.0.0-1~mx17+1) will be upgraded to version 28.2.0-1~mx17+1

And that's it. I searched for those upgradable two files it should bring in, but nope.

libmatroska6v5 stays at 1.4.9-1~mx17+1
libebml4v5 stays at 1.3.6-2~mx17+1

Those libmatroska and libebml packages are from the test repository, but you already had them installed for the previous backported mkvtoolnix. I should have thought about that case, but... :bagoverhead:

Used the MX Package installer to install mkvtoolnix and mkvtoolnix-gui v 28.2.0-1 from the test repo.

Launching either mkvtoolnix-gui or mkvinfo I get:

Code: Select all

mkvtoolnix-gui: symbol lookup error: mkvtoolnix-gui: undefined symbol: _ZN11libmatroska22KaxVideoProjectionType10ClassInfosE
So, I whipped open synaptic and located libmatroska6v5 v1.4.5-2, which indicated it needed and upgrade. I executed the upgrade.

Relaunched mkvtoolnix-gui and "voila", the gui appeared as normal.

I opened a 26GB mkv, and demuxed a DTS audio stream, chapters, subtitles, and mp4 AVC h.264 stream. Converted the DTS to AC3. Then remuxed the streams without any errors.
Son, someday all this will belong to your ex wife.

Hmmm...apparently it doesn't automatically pull in the new libmatroska like new packages normally do.

It says it depends on libmatroska6v5 (>= 1.4.5) when it really needs 1.4.9. I'll see if I can manually add the higher dependency.


apt policy libmatroska6v5
libmatroska6v5:
Installed: 1.4.9-1~mx17+1
Candidate: 1.4.9-1~mx17+1
Version table:
*** 1.4.9-1~mx17+1 500

100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
1.4.5-2 500
500 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian stretch/main amd64 Packages

Edit: fixed mx17+2 version on way to the test repo, thanks to the testers!

I had 33.1.0 installed and when the new version was announced I tried to update to it. There was an error about the old gui version still installed. So I plurge all of it. This is what I get trying to install the mkvtoolnix_35.0.0-1~mx17+1_amd64.deb & the mkvtoolnix-gui_35.0.0-1~mx17+1_amd64.deb.

Normal people think "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
Engineers think "If it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet".
