Fedora tutorial-How to install MKVToolNix on Fedora 20 and Fedora 21

MKVToolNix is my favorite application in Linux to merge the subtitle to the Matroska movie videos. Additionally, MKVToolNix can be used to edit, split and sync video files in Linux. The new version of MKVToolNix 7.5 is now available. This tutorial is going to show you how to install MKVToolNix 7.5 on Fedora 20 and Fedora 21. Installing MKVToolNix on Fedora is pretty easy because there is rpm binary file which supports Fedora 20 and Fedora 21.

The new MKVToolNix 7.5 comes with the following features and updates:

  • mkvmerge: bug fix: If the target drive is full then a nicer error message is output instead of simply crashing due to an uncaught exception.
  • mkvmerge: bug fix: Fixed reading MPEG transport streams in which all PATs and/or PMTs have CRC errors.
    all: bug fix: Re-wrote the whole checksum calculation code. This lead to a fix for the Adler32 checksum algorithm that was triggered under certain circumstances. Adler32 is used in mkvinfo’s output (e.g. in summary mode or if checksums are activated), in the h.265/HEVC bitstream and TrueAudio (TTA) file headers.
  • mkvmerge: bug fix: fixed handling of HE-AACv2 with object type.
  • mkvmerge: new feature: implemented support for MP4 DASH files.
  • mkvmerge: new feature: implemented reading MPEG-H p2/HEVC video tracks from MP4 files.
  • mkvinfo: bug fix: track statistics: the duration (and therefore the estimated bitrate) was wrong for files in which the frame with the maximum timecode wasn’t the last frame in the file.
  • mkvmerge: new feature: implemented support for AAC in LOAS/LATM multiplex if read from MPEG transport streams or raw LOAS/LATM AAC files.
