I'm using macOS Catalina 10.15.7 and Adobe Premiere Pro 2020.
I want to keep using MKV files because it is supposed to easily extract video/audio/scripts and I've seen how these are done in windows via mkvtoolnix and MKVExtractGUI.
However, there is no MKVExtractGUI for macOS.
Extracter I have tried:
1. ffmpeg; remux; VLC convert/stream
--- error. successfully transferred mkv into mp4. but premiere cannot open the mp4 with error "the file has an unsupported compression type".
2. inviska MKV Extract
--- error. "Crash while reading track information from the file:"
--- cannot install. "You can’t use this version of the application “iMkvExtract” with this version of macOS." I suppose this version is very old (2011) and thus does not work on macOS Catalina 10.15.7. However this is already the newest version I can find online.
Converter I have tried:
1. aimersoft video converter
--- pro: it works.
--- cons: a. too slow compared with what I expected with MKVExtractGUI; b. expensive; c. do not extract audio and video seperately.
I suppose other converter are similar so I stopped there.
I even tried to use Windows on my mac so I tried VMware-Fusion. But it asks me for an official windows first. That is also expensive.
Anyway, so much being said, I'm wondering is there any way that I could
1. extract video/audio/scripts from MKV files separately
2. at a speed equally fast as via MKVExtractGUI and mkvtoolnix
3. does not deteriorate the quality
4. afforadable (free the best)
Or my only option is to get myself a PC working on windows?
Please could anybody help me a little? I've wasted all night on this stupid stage and achieved nothing and got really frustrated.
Thanks a lot in advance for any help or advice.
I am very sad and I hate macOS for now
