Linux AppImage

I'm providing a distribution-agnostic AppImage for Linux. It should run on any more or less recent distribution. It has been tested successfully as far back as Ubuntu 14.04.

You can download the current AppImage from fosshub.com. Older releases and continuous builds can be found here.

Don't forget to make the downloaded file executable afterwards.

Starting the AppImage will launch MKVToolNix GUI. If you want to run one of the command-line tools, you can do so as well: by symlinking the AppImage to the tool's name. Here's an example using mkvpropedit to change a movie's title:

chmod u+rx MKVToolNix_GUI-27.0.0-x86_64.AppImage
ln -s MKVToolNix_GUI-27.0.0-x86_64.AppImage mkvpropedit
./mkvpropedit my-movie.mkv --set title="This is super cool movie"

Arch Linux

Giovanni Scafora is maintaining packages for libEBML, libMatroska and MKVToolNix in Arch's [extra] repository. You can install MKVToolNix with the simple command pacman -S mkvtoolnix-cli mkvtoolnix-gui

You can also view the package sites for libebml, libmatroska and MKVToolNix.

CentOS and RedHat Enterprise Linux 7.x

You can get the RPMs for MKVToolNix from my yum repository. First you can add that yum repository with the following command:

sudo rpm -Uhv https://mkvtoolnix.download/centos/bunkus-org-repo-2-3.noarch.rpm

MKVToolNix uses packages from the Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) repository. Make sure to have it enabled in your installation, too, before installing MKVToolNix itself.

Then you can install MKVToolNix with the following command:

sudo yum install mkvtoolnix

You can also browse the download directories: CentOS/RedHat 7.x.

CentOS 6.x: You can still get versions up to and including v8.5.2 from my repository. Follow the same steps as listed for v7 above.

Debian packages

I provide i386 and Amd64 binaries for MKVToolNix for Debian 9 "stretch" (the current stable) and Debian 8 "jessie" (the old stable).

I do not provide binaries for libEBML and libMatroska anymore as they're already part of the official distribution. If those are too old MKVToolNix even bundles the current version of both libraries.

You first have to import my public GPG key because all of my pools are signed. Run this once: wget -q -O - https://mkvtoolnix.download/gpg-pub-moritzbunkus.txt | sudo apt-key add -

You can access the packages by adding the lines below to a file such as /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mkvtoolnix.download.list:

Version APT source
Debian 9 (aka "stretch") deb https://mkvtoolnix.download/debian/ stretch main
deb-src https://mkvtoolnix.download/debian/ stretch main
Debian 8 (aka "jessie") deb https://mkvtoolnix.download/debian/ jessie main
deb-src https://mkvtoolnix.download/debian/ jessie main

Now simply run sudo apt update followed by sudo apt install mkvtoolnix mkvtoolnix-gui.

If updating the package lists fails, make sure you have the package apt-transport-https installed.

Debian 7 "wheezy": you can get versions up to v8.5.2 from my repsitory, but you have to active Debian's backports repository if you want to install the GUIs as they're linked against a newer version of Qt than wheezy itself contains.

Version APT source
Debian 7 (aka "wheezy") deb http://mkvtoolnix.download/debian/ wheezy main
deb-src http://mkvtoolnix.download/debian/ wheezy main

Fedora 26–28

I host i386/i686 and x86_64 binaries for Fedora 26, 27 and 28 of MKVToolNix in dnf repositories.

In order to add the repository all you have to do is to execute the following two commands:

sudo rpm -Uhv https://mkvtoolnix.download/fedora/bunkus-org-repo-2-3.noarch.rpm

Afterwards you can install MKVToolNix with the following command:

sudo dnf install mkvtoolnix

My GPG key's ID is 16D2F5DC 10C052A6, and the fingerprint is EB24 BCA1 4BA6 A24F 1427 6FEE 16D2 F5DC 10C0 52A6.

You can also browse the download directories for your version: Fedora 26 and Fedora 27.

Fedora 13–25: I don't provide updated binary packages for current MKVToolNix versions for these distributions anymore. However, older binary packages can still be found in the download directories.

Linux Flatpak images

Flatpak images are available over on FlatHub.org.

After installing Flatpak itself, you can download and run the current version with the following commands:

flatpak install flathub org.bunkus.mkvtoolnix-gui flatpak run org.bunkus.mkvtoolnix-gui

If you want to run one of the command-line tools, you can do so as well. In general the syntax looks like this:

flatpak run --command=<executable> org.bunkus.mkvtoolnix-gui <command line arguments>

Here's an example using mkvpropedit to change a movie's title:

flatpak run --command=mkvpropedit org.bunkus.mkvtoolnix-gui my-movie.mkv --set title="This is super cool movie"

FreeBSD

You can find MKVToolNix and its GUI as a port on freshports.org.

Gentoo

Thanks to Martin Holzer Gentoo does already contain ebuilds for MKVToolNix which you can simply install.

macOS 10.11 "El Capitan" and newer

Note: I don't own a Mac. While I do provide binaries I do not offer support for macOS. I don't use that platform, have no programming experience with it whatsoever, and I have neither the time nor the motivation to hunt down issues on it.

At the moment you have two options apart from building the applications yourself:

  1. Unsupported binaries by myself, a disk image of 27.0.0. It can be downloaded from fosshub.com.
  2. The HomeBrew project is an alternative for those who don't mind compiling from source (fully automated). Their port is at v27.0.0 and includes the new MKVToolNix GUI. After installing HomeBrew itself you can install MKVToolNix with the simple command brew install --with-qt mkvtoolnix.
  3. Older macOS versions

    Previous DMGs used to work on older macOS versions, to. Up to and including MKVToolNix v24, the DMGs worked on at least 10.09 "Mavericks" and newer. You can download those older versions over on oldfoss.com.

Mageia

Götz Waschk is so kind as to build RPM packages for Mageia (formerly Mandriva). The current version is in the Cauldron distribution. The repository for the stable version might only contain an outdated version of MKVToolNix.

NetBSD

You can find MKVToolNix and its GUI in the pkgsrc tree as multimedia/mkvtoolnix and multimedia/mmg, maintained by Lubomir Sedlacik.

OpenIndiana

You can find MKVToolNix and its GUI in official "extra" repository. After adding the rpository to your list of publishers you can install MKVToolNix with pkg install mkvtoolnix.

openSUSE Leap 42.3 & 15.0

Here are some binaries and source RPMs for MKVToolNix for openSUSE Leap 42.3 and 15.0. You can simply add my repository to zypper, import my RPM signing key and install MKVToolNix. Execute the following once:

wget https://mkvtoolnix.download/gpg-pub-bunkusorg-rpm-signing.txt
sudo rpmkeys --import gpg-pub-bunkusorg-rpm-signing.txt
sudo zypper addrepo --refresh https://mkvtoolnix.download/opensuse/15.0/ MKVToolNix

For 42.3 you'll have to adjust the repository location (the third line) like this:

sudo zypper addrepo --refresh https://mkvtoolnix.download/opensuse/42.3/ MKVToolNix

Now you can install the package itself with the following command: sudo zypper install mkvtoolnix

My GPG key's ID is 16D2F5DC 10C052A6, and the fingerprint is EB24 BCA1 4BA6 A24F 1427 6FEE 16D2 F5DC 10C0 52A6.

Older versions: I don't provide updated binary packages for MKVToolNix for versions up to and including openSUSE Leap 42.2. Older versions can still be found in the download directories.

Slackware

A way to get MKVToolNix running on the latest Slackware is to download the build script available on Slackbuilds.org and running it. It will do everything for you. This script was provided by Andrew Strong.

16.04 "Xenial Xerus", 17.10 "Artful Aardvark", 18.04 "Bionic Beaver"

I provide i386 and amd64 binaries for MKVToolNix.

I do not provide binaries for libEBML and libMatroska anymore as they're already part of the official distribution. If those are too old MKVToolNix even bundles the current version of both libraries.

You first have to import my public GPG key because all of my pools are signed. Run this once: wget -q -O - https://mkvtoolnix.download/gpg-pub-moritzbunkus.txt | sudo apt-key add -

You can access the packages by adding the appropriate lines below to a file such as /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mkvtoolnix.download.list:

Version APT source
18.04 "Bionic Beaver" deb https://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu/ bionic main
deb-src https://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu/ bionic main
17.10 "Artful Aardvark" deb https://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu/ artful main

16.04 "Xenial Xerus" deb https://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu/ xenial main
deb-src https://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu/ xenial main

Now simply run sudo apt update followed by sudo apt install mkvtoolnix mkvtoolnix-gui.

If updating the package lists fails, make sure you have the package apt-transport-https installed.
