I can only guess how many newbie questions that will end up on a forum like this.
I googled to try to resolve my problem and found a few threads on here, though I couldn't find the exact problem I have.
I've gone through 5 seasons of LOST (720p) in less than one month. Was just getting started on S06 and I don't get any audio, and not being able to fix it is quite frustrating. I put the files on a USB memory stick and put it into my Samsung Bluray/DVD-player to watch. I ran the files in the Media Info program, and the only difference between the audio from S1-5 and S6, is that in S6 it says Muxing mode : Header stripping. Doesn't say that from any files from S1-5, so maybe that's the problem. I have MKVtoolnix (MKVmerge). Can I fix it with that?
Here's from Media Info, from a file from S6. Again, here it says Muxing mode: Header stripping, which it doesn't say from previous seasons. Other than that the info is identical.

Thread: Header stripping
Remove the header stripping with mkvmergegui, first go to File->Options and select "Disable header removal compression..." and then open the mkv and make a new mkv. Remember that next time you make your own mkvs...

Only took about 30 seconds/file (2.2gb each) and works like a charm.
Many many thanks
Is there any program that i can add it one folder with mkv files with "header removal compression" and remove it from ALL the mkv files there is in that folder and subfolders without writing again the mkv file simply remove that "header removal compression".
A lot of thanks.
Yes i want without remuxing or copying the file.
A simply gui program that can remove all audio header compressation from all mkv files i have in one folder without any other change at the mkv files only the removing of audio head compressation.
A LOT OF THANKS.
I know it can remove the audio head compressation but i don't want only that.
Changes that require data be inserted or removed from the body of the file cannot be made without a remux.
Ok then a program that can remux a lot of mkv files to the CORRECT path tothe folder i put.
Is there any that kind of program?
So there isn't any gui free program that remove the audio head compression to a multi mkv files?

Guess I'll have to stick with 5.8.0. But I'm not sure what you mean by " it's currently off permanently". The option in the old dialog was called "Disable Header Removal Compression..." so turning it "on" disabled Header Removal Compression (it was off by default). Are you saying all files muxed with the new version use Header Removal Compression? Could you upload a small file muxed with the new version? Or just show a MediaInfo report for a file muxed with it?
header removal compression is now always removed if it was there, and can no longer be used.--

Ha ha ha very funny.....
I was search of SERIOUS answers not a funny one....
jagabo told you this: "If we knew of one we would have told you."
Refusing to believe what you have been told is not likely to magically make a program exist that does not exist now, but you are certainly welcome to try this interesting method of new program creation.
Ok then is there an program that it scan a full hard disk and tell us which mkv has audio head comprettion so we remove it one by one?
STILL YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND I DON'T WANT to must check one by one all mkv files i have to the hard disk but i want a program that search ALL THE MKV FILES at any drive and report me which of these has audio head compression so i change it one by one...
Do you know any that kind of program?
No such program. You must write a script/batch.
If i know create a cript/batch i would created.
But i don't want.
And i don't believe there isn't
Header compression was not used in the older versions of mkvmerge but was added a couple of years ago. It's hard to believe that the author would take it back out because he insisted that it was part of the mkv spec and refused to remove it after he started putting it in. I'm wondering if ffmpeg uses an older version because I don't have it in any of my newer mkv files or if the author did remove header compression after tons of complaints.
It's simple enough to create an ffmpeg script to remux a folder full of mkv files. You don't need to search for files with header compression, just run the bat file on the whole folder.
It only takes a couple of minutes (maybe a little more depending on the size of the folder) to do a whole folder. Just make sure you place a copy of ffmpeg.exe in the folder along with the bat file. Copy text below in notepad and save as RemuxMKV.bat
for %%a in ("*.mkv") do ffmpeg -i %%a -vcodec copy -acodec %%~na.new.mkv
Make sure there are no spaces in your filenames or the files will be ignored. Here's a VBSscript to replace spaces with dashes. Just paste into notepad and save as Replace-Spaces-With-Dashes.vbs...
dim objFileSys, file, folderName, folderObj, fileColl, objRegEx, newFile
set objFileSys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
folderName = InputBox("Enter the full path where the files are located.", "Full path is required")
set folderObj = objFileSys.GetFolder(folderName)
set fileColl = folderObj.Files
set objRegEx = new RegExp
objRegEx.Pattern = " " ' the pattern is one space
objRegEx.Global = true
for each objFile in fileColl
newFile = objRegEx.Replace(objFile.Name, "-") ' each pattern gets replaced with one dash
objFileSys.MoveFile objFile, folderName & "\" & newFile
...or you can just use mkvmerge to manually change one file at a time if you'd like.
