Downloads

Arch Linux

Giovanni Scafora is maintaining packages for libEBML, libMatroska and MKVToolNix in Arch's [extra] repository. You can install MKVToolNix with the simple command pacman -S mkvtoolnix

You can also view the package sites for libebml, libmatroska and MKVToolNix.

CentOS and RedHat Enterprise Linux 7.x

You can get the RPMs for MKVToolNix from my yum repository. First you can add that yum repository with the following command:

sudo rpm -Uhv https://mkvtoolnix.download/centos/bunkus-org-repo-2-3.noarch.rpm

MKVToolNix uses packages from the Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) repository. Make sure to have it enabled in your installation, too, before installing MKVToolNix itself.

Then you can install MKVToolNix with the following command:

sudo yum install mkvtoolnix

You can also browse the download directories: CentOS/RedHat 7.x.

CentOS 6.x: You can still get versions up to and including v8.5.2 from my repository. Follow the same steps as listed for v7 above.

Debian packages

I provide i386 and Amd64 binaries for MKVToolNix for Debian 8 "jessie" (the current stable).

I do not provide binaries for libEBML and libMatroska anymore as they're already part of the official distribution. If those are too old MKVToolNix even bundles the current version of both libraries.

You first have to import my public GPG key because all of my pools are signed. Run this once: wget -q -O - https://mkvtoolnix.download/gpg-pub-moritzbunkus.txt | sudo apt-key add -

You can access the packages by adding the appropriate lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

Version APT source
Debian 8 (aka "jessie") deb http://mkvtoolnix.download/debian/jessie/ ./
deb-src http://mkvtoolnix.download/debian/jessie/ ./

Now simply run sudo apt-get update followed by sudo apt-get install mkvtoolnix mkvtoolnix-gui. Note that you only need the MKVToolNix packages as the libraries are linked statically.

Debian 7 "wheezy": you can get versions up to v8.5.2 from my repsitory, but you have to active Debian's backports repository if you want to install the GUIs as they're linked against a newer version of Qt than wheezy itself contains.

Version APT source
Debian 7 (aka "wheezy") deb http://mkvtoolnix.download/debian/wheezy/ ./
deb-src http://mkvtoolnix.download/debian/wheezy/ ./

Fedora 23 and 24

I host i386/i686 and x86_64 binaries for Fedora 23 and 24 of MKVToolNix in dnf repositories.

I do not provide binaries for libEBML and libMatroska anymore as they're already part of the official distribution. If those are too old MKVToolNix even bundles the current version of both libraries.

In order to add the repository all you have to do is to execute the following two commands:

sudo rpm -Uhv https://mkvtoolnix.download/fedora/bunkus-org-repo-2-3.noarch.rpm

Afterwards you can install MKVToolNix with the following command:

sudo dnf install mkvtoolnix

My GPG key's ID is 16D2F5DC 10C052A6, and the fingerprint is EB24 BCA1 4BA6 A24F 1427 6FEE 16D2 F5DC 10C0 52A6.

You can also browse the download directories for your version: Fedora 23 and Fedora 24.

Fedora 13 - 22: I don't provide updated binary packages for current MKVToolNix versions for these distributions anymore. However, older binary packages can still be found in the download directories.

FreeBSD

You can find MKVToolNix and its GUI as a port on freshports.org.

Gentoo

Thanks to Martin Holzer Gentoo does already contain ebuilds for MKVToolNix which you can simply install.

MacOS X 10.x

Note: I don't own a Mac. While I do provide experimental binaries I do not offer support for MacOS. I don't use that platform, have no programming experience with it whatsoever, and I have neither the time nor the motivation to hunt down issues on it.

At the moment you have four options apart from building the applications yourself:

  1. Experimental binaries by myself, a disk image of 9.3.1 including the new MKVToolNix GUI. It can be downloaded from fosshub.com.
  2. A user, Harry, provides a disk image (at 8.2.0) for Mountain Lion (10.8) and Mavericks (10.9) for MKVToolNix. It only contains the old and deprecated mkvmerge GUI. You can download it from fosshub.com.
  3. The HomeBrew project is an alternative for those who don't mind compiling from source (fully automated). Their port is at v9.3.1 and includes the new MKVToolNix GUI. After installing HomeBrew itself you can install MKVToolNix with the simple command brew install --with-qt5 mkvtoolnix.
  4. The MacPorts project also includes MKVToolNix (including the old and deprecated mkvmerge GUI). At the moment v7.9.0 is available there. You have to install MacPorts itself. Afterwards installing MKVToolNix is as easy as typing sudo port install mkvtoolnix +wxwidgets.

In the past another user, Jonathan Buschmann, used to provide a universal (32/64bits) package for Snow Leopard (10.6), Lion (10.7) and Mountain Lion (10.8) but discontinued his packages after v6.9.1. You can still download his older builds from here.

Mageia

Götz Waschk is so kind as to build RPM packages for Mageia (formerly Mandriva). The current version is in the Cauldron distribution. The repository for the stable version might only contain an outdated version of MKVToolNix.

NetBSD

You can find MKVToolNix and its GUI in the pkgsrc tree as multimedia/mkvtoolnix and multimedia/mmg, maintained by Lubomir Sedlacik.

OpenIndiana

You can find MKVToolNix and its GUI in official "extra" repository. After adding the rpository to your list of publishers you can install MKVToolNix with pkg install mkvtoolnix.

openSUSE 13.2, 42.1

Here are some binaries and source RPMs for MKVToolNix for openSUSE 13.2 and 42.1. If you only want to run MKVToolNix (and not compile it youreslf) then you only need to download the corresponding MKVToolNix RPM for your architecture from the corresponding download directory: openSUSE 13.2, openSUSE 42.1.

Older versions: I don't provide updated binary packages for MKVToolNix for versions up to and including openSUSE 13.1. Older versions can still be found in the download directories.

Slackware

A way to get MKVToolNix running on the latest Slackware is to download the build script available on Slackbuilds.org and running it. It will do everything for you. This script was provided by Andrew Strong.

Ubuntu 14.04 "Trusty Tahr", 15.10 "Wily Werewolf", 16.04 "Xenial Xerus"

I provide i386 and Amd64 binaries for MKVToolNix.

I do not provide binaries for libEBML and libMatroska anymore as they're already part of the official distribution. If those are too old MKVToolNix even bundles the current version of both libraries.

You first have to import my public GPG key because all of my pools are signed. Run this once: wget -q -O - https://mkvtoolnix.download/gpg-pub-moritzbunkus.txt | sudo apt-key add -

You can get the package by adding the following lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

Version APT source
16.04 "Xenial Xerus" deb http://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu/xenial/ ./
deb-src http://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu/xenial/ ./
15.10 "Wily Werewolf" deb http://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu/wily/ ./
deb-src http://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu/wily/ ./
14.04 "Trusty Tahr" deb http://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu/trusty/ ./
deb-src http://mkvtoolnix.download/ubuntu/trusty/ ./

Now simply run sudo apt-get update followed by sudo apt-get install mkvtoolnix mkvtoolnix-gui

Unfortunately I do not have access to other distributions and cannot provide binaries for other distributions. If you're interested in providing binary packages for other distributions then please contact me. You'll find my email address on the contact page.
