  1. Hi - just a question please:

    Using MKV ToolNix it is possible to add txt files as attachment to Matroska container. I would like to use it for e.g. attaching a HandBrake LOG file there. However I don't know hot to reed it then easily. Is there any little program (viewer) which would show content of the text file, e.g. in the windows explorer? Thanks.

    You could add information by using a Global tag. I use to do this for all of my movies, added a little more information to General and Video log.

  11. Hi hardy - time flies, it is now almost 5 years since you gave me this handy advice... I hope you are well.
    I'm using this handy info all the time since.
    However, I would like to ask you something more about this. Could you tell me please where I could find more information about creating this file - I would like to find for example if it can be placed in a different spot on the General Tag, perhaps immediately after the Encoded date line?
    My problem is that whenever I run a mkv file through the MKVToolNix it destroys my lines with its own Writing application and Writing library lines and so I have to always remember to include my xml file there during muxing. So I thought if they were somewhere higher they would not be disturbed.

    Thank you for your attention

    With Regards
