    I'm getting this error from MKVToonixGUI: "Files cannot be appended to themselves. The argument for '--append-to' was invalid."

    Which, as error messages go, is pretty unambiguous. Only issue is I'm trying to append a file named "1.mkv" to a file named "2.mkv". Clearly, those aren't the same file.

    So why am I getting this error? Here's the actual command line:
    Code:
    C:/Program Files/MKVToolNix\mkvmerge.exe --ui-language en --output M:\Backups\Temp\output.mkv --language 0:eng --language 1:eng --track-name 1:Dolby Digital 2.0 --default-track 1:yes ( M:\Backups\Temp\1.mkv ) + ( M:\Backups\Temp\2.mkv ) --track-order 0:0,0:1 --append-to 1:0:0:0,1:1:0:1,1:2:1:1

  2. Code:
    --append-to 1:0:0:0,1:1:0:1,1:2:1:1
    The last pair is 1:2:1:1. So you are trying to append track 2 from file 1 to track 1 from file 1. Same file.



    P.S.:
    Code:
    --track-name 1:Dolby Digital 2.0
    Probably want
    Code:
    --track-name "1:Dolby Digital 2.0"

    Ah, the second clip has a spare audio track I hadn't noticed. Unchecking that fixes the issue.

    I'm using MKVtoolnixGUI, not the command line interface. To post here I just went to the "show command line" option and removed escaping so it'd be more readable.
