• Simplified, intuitive user interface that takes the guess work out of processing MKV videos.
• Ability to convert various surround sound audio to 5.1 AC3 or 5.1 AAC.
• Intuitively select desired video, audio and/or subtitle tracks to process, with the ability to verify the selections using video preview.
• Define presets for one step automated encoding and track selections settings.
• Burn (i.e., hard code) subtitle tracks into the video, or mux (soft subtitles) from internal tracks or from external subtitle files commonly found on the internet.
• Control the font, size and positioning of the embedded subtitles.
• Split MKV videos into segments of a specified file size or by start/end time.
• Turn off an MKV video's header removal compression to allow more compatibility with playback and editing.
• Join MKV videos.
• Extract the selected tracks from MKV videos as individual video and/or audio files.
• Add jobs to a queue either individually or in batches via drag and drop so you can process multiple files overnight (registered copies only).

MKVtools is a Mac OS X application used for the creation and editing of MKV videos. It is an update and more specialized version of the original MKVtools, so if you are familiar with its operation, you should be comfortable using this rebranded version. As the name might imply, MKVtools is a graphical interface for a variety of tools useful for processing video files. Mencoder, Mplayer, and the binaries from Mkvtoolnix do the brunt of the work. Limitations to MKVtools’ capabilities are most often due to limitations with these applications.
When you open a video file in MKVtools, you will be presented with a list of video, audio and subtitle tracks contained in the file. Sometimes there will be enough information for you to determine what each track represents. If not, you can select a video and an audio track (and optionally a subtitle track) to preview the tracks in an mplayer window.
Once you’ve determined which tracks you are interested in, you can either convert the tracks into an MKV video, or you can extract the tracks individually to manipulate in your favorite video application. You also can edit MKV files by either splitting or joining videos, or you can add tracks to the video.
