  1. Can we Use Different Titles when batch encoding MKVs....
    Either using Wildcards, Variables or Filenames....

    I use Staxrip to convert batch MKVs and I can create a template by giving a specific Title for MKV file... But then the same title applied to all files that uses the template....

    Can we set it to use the file name in each file.... or similar solution?
    Are there any MKVMerge switches to set titles from file names or ....
    .

    Maybe with a windows bat file.

    What is the command to add the title in the mkvmerge?

    Then you run a for loop for all files and add the filename as title.

    Example batch

    Make a title.bat text file in same folder as your mkvs. Make a folder newfiles in same folder.

    Put this in title.bat
    Code:
    for %%a in ("*.mkv") do "c:\mkvtoolnix\mkvmerge.exe" -o "newfiles\%%a" --title '%%~na' "%%a"
    pause
    Change the mkvtoolnix folder to your mkvmerge.exe location.

    Then double click on the bat file. It should then set the title to the filename without the extension(mkv).

    does this work with unicode file names? (with cyrillic, greek, japanese, chinese characters etc.)

    I have no idea. Try with one mkv and see if it works.

    tried it on "Yngwie Malmsteen and Björk - One Night Only.mkv"

    Code:
    for %%a in ("*.mkv") do %ffmpeg% -threads 0 -y  -i "%%a" -c:v copy -c:a copy -metadata title="%%~na" "%%~na_WithTitle.mp4"
