What is this?
MKVVerify is a tool which reads Matroska files and checks them
for errors. Since it does, like AVI-Mux GUI, not use any kind of foreign
libs for Matroska files, it is independent from those and might even read
files other tools crash with (or might crash on files other tools can read).
However, it is not able to detect all errors. It merely scans for common
anomalies, caused either by b0rked muxing applications or by bad usage of those.
If you have a Matroska file that behaves weirdly, this tool might help
to find out what is going on.
- Added: Show hardlinking UIDs
- Added: more checking (mainly started to introduce check for mandatory elements)
- Added: checks CRC32
- fixed: reading of 80 bit floats in Matroska files failed
- fixed: crash on Targets with more than one SimpleTag
- fixed: reading of 64 bit floats in Matroska files failed
- won't display non-ASCII-characters in titles/stream names correctly
Use mkvverify -help to obtain a list
of command line interface paramters, or use scandir.bat
to scan all *.MKV files in the current directory.
Example: mkvverify d:\movies\filename.mkv -fullcheck
When scanning a file, to whatever extent, all spotted notes, warnings,
or problems in the file will be displayed as a message.
