lets make some mkv file with audio and video using mkvmerge and open in foobar - audio will play, it is possible to alter tags
lets take this file and run through official cleaning tool mkclean, that fixes errors and ensures standard compliance - file no longer recognized by foobar. It doesn't matters what switch used for mkclean so i guess the problem is because it puts some cues in the beginning of the file

Audio-only files however remain to be recognised. This is very unfortunate since sometimes I want to load video in foobar because audio in it have higher quality/bitdepth than the one on audiocd...
This is funny actually how the tool that supposed to fix stuff makes foobar reject it. For any other software I know of its effect varies from "nothing" to "very positive".

So any comment on this?

Possible answers I want to hear:
- we know that mkv support is not full, but we don't care
- we didn't tried official matroska tools for standard compliance and optimizing and/or video files playback, we tested foobar only on some random mkv files that we found on the net, we'll check and hopefully fix it
- we didn't tried official matroska tools for standard compliance and optimizing and/or video files playback, we tested foobar only on some random mkv files that we found on the net, but we are too busy to mess with it

Anything will do for me.

mkv is a container for video. Have you tried using the mka container, since you are already using mkvmerge, or just demux the audio into its original format?

Also, if you don't want to separate the audio from the video, why play with foobar2000? If it's about sound quality, you can get the same quality with many other players which do video as well.

Inconsistency in Matroska specs: TimecodeScale is "mandatory" yet mkvclean throws it out, presumably intended to make software presume the "default" value of 1000000.

Problem worked-around for the next fb2k version.

MKA and MKV are one and the same, just with a different extension to hint at what the file contains.

Why you listen your FLAC with foobar? there is other players that support it. I understand if I was talking about some unsupported feature, then yes. But its supported just poorly.

EDIT: I have a lot of singles that come as CD+DVD variant or some Music Videos from BD. They are part of my music library but I saw them many times now I just want them to be part of my playlist.

Talking about MKVs with videos inside, I noticed that seeking and track changes take an extraordinarily amount of time on MKVs with video streams inside. Is there some way to work around this problem?

I'd rather not keep redundant copies of my media around, but maybe I should have said "fix" instead of "workaround". smile.gif

Any further idea about this? I have several live DVDs which I remux to MKV, no re-encoding, just keep the MPEG2+LPCM, put the names of the songs to the chapters and mux together.

If I use the library by tags is a bit of a mess, obviously the MKVs don't have tags, but using folder structure is fine. The files are properly recognized and I get the audio separated by chapters with the song names. However, seeking or advancing tracks takes forever. A full minute plus a couple of seconds, I measured. During that time the HDD led shows full activity. If I open the MKV with a video player, track changes and seeking are instantly.

And no, I don't want to use a video player. I'd like to have all my songs in one place. And as said above, having to keep redundant copies just for foobar isn't the best. If no one intends to fix this it's fine, I'd just like to know the status of Matroska on foobar tongue.gif
