  1. Hello,

    I have a bunch of MKV files. They have two audio tracks. The first track is German and the second is English. I'd prefer to remove the German track or make the English track the first track so I don't have to switch the audio track when streaming them. Is there an easy way to do this? I know I can do it one file at a time with a few programs but I'd like to do a group as there are over 100 episodes.

    MKVToolNix

    Simply open the file using MKVToolNix, deselect the components that you don't want, and mux. I'm pretty sure you can batch with it as well, but I've not done it.

  3. Thanks - I just tried that - ended up making a big mkv file. Sorry but I'm a bit of a newbie.

  4. MKVBatch can remove non-english tracks for all files in a folder.

  5. Thanks! It looks promising. I just tried it but it has this message - MediaInfo CLI path "must" be set to use this program! Operation is aborted. I downloaded it but it isn't an installable so the path is wherever I download it but I don't see a place to specify that path.

    I'm not sure what the MediInfo CLI is.

    Thanks! I have version 1.2.3 - it has only two lines in the set executables
    ffprobe.exe location
    and mkvMerge.exe location

    There isn't a third line for Media Info CLI and if I put the mediainfo path in the ffprobe.exe drag and drop box is says it isn't ffprobe.

    I uninstalled and tried 1.2.2 Same issue.
    I tried editing my mkvbatch ini - added the line mediainfo.exe Path=G:\Install\install\MKVToolNix\MediaInfo_CLI_0 .7.87_Windows_x64\MediaInfo.exe under the paths section but it didn't help.

  8. Download ffmpeg Static Build. ffprobe is part of it.

  9. Thanks - ffmpeg stopped it from posting the mediainfo CLI popup however it crashed as soon as I clicked on Run MKVBatch - tried to run it 3 times after closing. Installed the newer version - same issue.

    A batching system for mkvmerge has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly - close program.

    I have the latest version of mkvmerge 9.3.1. I'm running on Windows 10 x64 pro. I have 16GB of memory (65% free), an i7-6700k, 125GB free on my 250GB SSD and 50TB free on my raid where the files are stored.

    The only special thing I did was click on filter out Non-English Audio so I unchecked that and it still crashes.

  10. I don't know what's wrong but you could try ffmpeg from a CMD shell

    Code:
    for %h in (*.mkv) do [path to ffmpeg]ffmpeg -i "%h" -map 0:0 -map 0:2 -c copy "new\%h"

  11. Thanks very much for trying so hard. I really appreciate you walking me through so much.

  12. Strangely enough after a while I got it to work with BatchMKV instead of mkvbatch (I thought they might be the same program but they are not).

    mkvbatch looks promising, thanks for that one.

  14. If you can't get mkvbatch working try batchmkv. Hopefully you'll be able to get mkvworking on your machine - I couldn't on mine.
