Splitting long MKV into chapters using MKVToolsNix

Post by nicolaidenmark » Mon Feb 19, 2018 12:46 pm

My first ever NAS will be arriving on Saturday and I'm in the process of Ripping my Star Wars - Clone Wars Box Set (Season 1-5).


Unlike season 1, disc 1 of season 2 has all the episodes merged into a large MKV. Using MKVToolNix, I get an error when I tell it to "Split before chapter". How do I enter, the parameters correctly? I currently enter

5,[space] 9,[space] etc. The program says, there's an error, however, I can't seem to find a description.

Also, when ever I get my head around splitting the large MKVs, is there a way I can acurately define / make / mark new chapters in each episode? MKVToolNix only has: No chapters, one chapter for each file and chapters in fixed intervals.

Thanks,

This works, enter the chapters without space, f.e 5,9,14,22
The first split file contains chapter 1,2,3,4 the second split file chapter 5,6,7,8 and so on
