MKVToolNix is a set of tools to create, alter and inspect Matroska files.


  1. Connect to your seedbox through SSH

  2. Check for the latest source tarball Version here and enter into your session

  3. Extract the archive

     tar xJf mkvtoolnix-*.tar.xz
  4. Navigate to the newly created folder

     cd mkvtoolnix-*
  5. Configure the program

  6. Compile the program

  7. Copy the program to your binary folder

     mkdir -p ~/bin
     cp src/mkvinfo ~/bin/mkvinfo
     cp src/mkvextract ~/bin/mkvextract
     cp src/mkvmerge ~/bin/mkvmerge
     cp src/mkvpropedit ~/bin/mkvpropedit
  8. Run the command ~/bin/mkvinfo -hto test. If it displays the the help menu for that utility, you have successfully installed MKVToolNix.

  9. Clean up source files

     cd; rm -r mkvtoolnix-*
