Your "here" link doesn't link anywhere. Looking at the source, it looks like you forgot to add the href and link.

Dastardly HTML

Foiled by a missing double quote. It should be fixed now.

It's leaving this behind

It's leaving this behind (win7):
%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\mkvtoolnix
%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Roaming

change
[DirectoriesMove]
-=%APPDATA%\Roaming\mkvtoolnix

to

[DirectoriesMove]
-=%APPDATA%\mkvtoolnix

so it cleans it up (in win7)

everything else clean

thanks for keeping this one alive Smile

mkvextractGUI

Hi

Thanks for picking up this project.

Is it possible to include mkvextractGUI in this package?
It has to be in the same directory anyway so maybe it's a nice addition to this project.

Or is it better to make a new portableapps package for this and install in the same directory?

Separate

I'm not going to be including it because that would require a separate launcher in the package. Though I'm sure if you want to create your own with MKVExtractGUI as the launcher, there will be people who will test it out.

mkvextractGUI

Thanks for your reply.

It is possible to have 2 or more launchers in 1 package, you just can't build them at once.
Actually i made a attempt to include it all in one package, but it's based on the mkvtoolnix build you took over. I updated it to version 6.0

You can find my version here: http://www.riethorst.net/MKVToolnixPortable_6.0_Multilingual_MKVExtractG...

Glad you got it working

The reason that I'm staying away from the multiple launchers is because I've read in other posts that they prefer if there's only one launcher in a package. Things like LibreOffice are exceptions to this rule. I'm glad you got it working, and I'm sure that if you put a beta testing page up, people will use it. It would be even cooler if you managed to make it a plugin installer for MKVToolNix.

mkvextractGUI plugin installer?

I'm not sure a plugin installer will work.
It's intended to install some files but not a launcher and launcher.ini as far as i know

mkvextractGUI plugin installer

Hi

I was thinking about the plugin installer idea.
But i understand that it would be best in that case to just include the necessary files and no launcher? That way would work but you have to launch the app by hand and it doesn't show up in the menu.

I think that a complete separate installer is overkill, because it would install mkvtoolnix again which is already on the usb stick

Personally is see no problem why there wouldn't be multiple launchers in one application.

Maybe somebody can explain too me why this is not preferable?

Here's the thread where JTH

Here's the thread where JTH comments on multiple launchers: Multiple Launchers with PAL. Maybe that will help a little.

mkvextractGUI

Thanks for the info darksabre76.

I have read the tread and the only conclusion i get out of it is that multiple launchers is not supported and there is no solution yet. It can be done (i did the same tactic as pyromenia) but it is not foolproof.

The only possibility that i can think of is, like you said, to build a separate installer for mkvextractGui despite that it will install mkvtoolnix twice.
I will think about that

There are a few applications

There are a few applications like CD burners (like cdrtfe and audio and video editors (like Audacity and DVDStyler) that are in that section so it made sense to me to have it there. But then again, that's why you can change sections if you want.

MKVExtractGui-2 Development test 1

Hi

I finally made my version of MKVExtractGui-2.
It's a single installer with only the necessary files from MKVToolnix.

This is my first officially listed portable app on this site.
Try it out if you will.

Hi

I tried your application and it works great, compliments on that.

I tested with regshot and found no things that are left behind.

Official?

Good work on this, darksaber76. I haven't had any issues with any of the dev tests I've used. With matroska being the excellent open source container that it is, MKVToolNix would be great as an official app and compliment the self updating software selection available here very nicely.

64-bit

To all users of MKVToolNix: The most recent update to the application introduces a 64-bit variant of the program alongside the normal 32-bit version. Would anyone realistically want this included in the package? Or would you prefer me keeping it just 32-bit? I would not like to create a separate package for 64-bit if it's not included so those are the only two options. Once I hear feedback (or I make up my mind), 6.7.0 will be released. Thanks in advance!

Performance vs Size

It's only worth it if the performance boost is a bigger positive than the size increase is a negative. It's also worth determining if some bits are duplicated between the two and move them back and forth (help files, localizations, etc are typical candidates) to save space.

Full details on how we decide: https://portableapps.com/node/24371

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

64 bit version

I don't think that the 64bit version will benefit from performance?
It can use more ram memory but i doubt it will speed up this program, so no 32bit is fine by me.

Here is a quote from the mkvtoolnix author about 64bit versions:

As to the performance. There is really no advantage to running mkvmerge in 64bit mode vs 32bit mode. All features are present in the 32bit mode, and performance mostly depends on the machine's I/O sub-system. There are certain codecs for which memory performance trumps I/O performance. Among those is h.264 when it is read from unframed sources (M2TS, AVI, raw h.264 ES – but not if it's read from MP4 or Matroska files).

I don't do anything special for 64bit builds regarding cache coherency, and to be honest I don't plan on investigating any time on optimizations in that area.

2 votes nay

I see two very good arguments against adding the 64-bit variant to the package and I agree with those completely. I'll still continue with just the 32-bit variant unless the 64-bit version offers any significant performance increases in the future. Thank you John and ed666 for your inputs.

Update when possible

Thank you for the update. I've been very busy with end-of-semester work and a Master's project, so my update time will probably lag on this (and everything else I package).

Monthly releases, currently 13.0

It looks like the author's been releasing monthly updates, and is currently up to 13.0 as of June 25.
I suspect a new update will drop in the next few days, based on the release pattern.
