Version 16.0.0 "Protest" 2017-09-30

New features and enhancements

  • mkvmerge: MP4 reader: added support for Vorbis. Implements #2093.

Bug fixes

  • configure: the checks for libEBML and libMatroska have been fixed to require libEBML 1.3.5 and libMatroska 1.4.7 as intended.

  • mkvmerge: AAC reader: mkvmerge will now emit an error message for AAC files whose header fields imply a sampling frequency or number of channels of 0. See #2107.

  • mkvmerge: AVC/h.264 ES parser: fixed the calculation of reference information for P and B frames. This also fixes some P frames being marked as B frames and vice versa.
  • mkvmerge: AVC/h.264 ES parser: only non-key frames that have the NALU header field nal_ref_idc set to 0 will be marked as "discardable" in SimpleBlock elements. Other half of the fix for #2047.
  • mkvmerge: HEVC/h.265: the generation of the HEVCC structure stored in CodecPrivate was wrong in two places: 1. the position of the number of sub-layers was swapped with reserved bits and 2. the VPS/SPS/PPS/SEI lists did not start with a reserved 1 bit.
  • mkvmerge: output: the doc type version will be set at least to 2 if certain elements are written (CodecState, CueCodecState, FlagInterlaced).
  • mkvmerge: output: the track header attributes MinCache and MaxCache will not be written anymore. Fixes #2079.
  • mkvmerge: Matroska reader: the "key" and "discardable" flags of SimpleBlock elements will be kept as they are. Partial fix for #2047.
  • mkvmerge: Matroska reader: if present in the file, the "white colour coordinate x" track header attribute was written to both "white colour coordinate x" and "white colour coordinate y" in the output file.
  • mkvmerge: Opus output: mkvmerge will now put all frames with discard padding into their own block group. Fixes #2100.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: header editor: removed the check for external modification when saving the file. Fixes #2097.
  • MKVToolNix GUI: job queue: fixed calculation of total progress when automatic removal of completed is enabled. Fixes #2105.

Build system changes

  • libEBML v1.3.5 and libMatroska v1.4.8 are now required. In fact v15.0.0 already requires libEBML v1.3.5 and libMatroska v1.4.7 but did not include proper version checks for them (nor was there a entry for the new libMatroska requirement). New is the requirement for libMatroska v1.4.8 due to it fixing writing block groups for tracks with the track number 128 (see #2103).
