they are not actually recreating the wheel, sense they already use the ebml/mkv lib for output. If you can write, you can read. Plain and simple.
MKV is in the name of the product, just really odd that they cant parse the input
If I had the time I would create an app just to edit mkv files, but then I would add the same features MakeMKV has... but then I would be recreating the wheel with the added function of editing mkv files =)
but I dont have the time right now
if this app does go commercial I wouldnt buy sense it does not have everything I want, and this app definitely needs mkv editing functions
and with the admin ignoring this thread does not bode well either
@Logman: Since there is a free and well-supported solution to the editing need (the MKVToolnix package), why should the authors of MakeMKV spend valuable time working on redundant functionality? I'd rather have that time spent doing things for which I don't currently have a good solution. And it has gone commercial, as you can buy a registration key. You just don't yet have to buy
Your argument is odd. It's like saying you won't buy a waffle iron because it's not also a microwave.
MakeMKV is designed to do one thing: rip MKVs off DVD/BD discs. I was actually surprised when Mike put in the backup/streaming functions which seemed non-core to me. But they are "high demand" features. Editing existing MKVs is probably a low-demand feature which explains why Mike isn't spending much time on this thread.
