So I have been searching far and wide for an easier way to make chapters in general.
So far the simplest method i could find was to use MKV Chapter Editor while watching it in VLC and putting in time codes by hand.
While this is not desirable, I can work with it better than other solutions.
Does anyone know of a setup where i can watch the file and click a button where it grabs the time index and prompts for a chapter name and i can then save that as a chapter file and mux it in afterwards?

@KTH, thanks for the suggestion. I checked out the trial version for what it could do... Sadly it is not viable due to the 100$ price tag...
any other suggestions ?
I was looking for something like that also,..., without any luck, it was year or half a year back. Using PopCorn MKV Chapter maker myself, http://www.networkedmediatank.com/showthread.php?tid=13034 where you input frame number and it creates chapter. But no graphic interface. I remember that the author was thinking to use VLC for his program but it it was not working for him. Absence of this graphic interface feature out there reveals that not many people actually put chapters into their videos, mkv's, home videos, (movies already have chapters), I was hoping that after DVD era it would pick up, this sort of things, meaning home video in mkv with chapters but it looks like it did not. DVD's are being made and used still a lot.
If you know how to use avisynth, you can use avspmod which is sort of a GUI for avisynth
You can play the video, or navigate to wherever, and add bookmarks (ctrl+b, but you can map the key to whatever you want).
There is an included macro that converts the bookmarks to OGM style chapter list (macro => bookmarks to chapter)
