Setting Track Names by Profile

Post by Quester » Sat Nov 30, 2019 8:02 am

I just bought MakeMKV and wonder how I might change the Track Naming not just manually but by profile?
I already have a profile generated just for the Trackselection.
But I also don't want all Surround Tracks to be named like the default 'Surround 5.1', rather I want at least the 'Codec' in front of,
like 'DTS-HD Master Surround 5.1' or 'DD Surround 5.1',...
Doing this manually right clicking for all Tracks/Discs is too much effort.

How can I do this?

Best regards

Same as: ... 10&t=20907

It's currently not supported by MakeMKV

But, you can write a f.e Powershell script for getting the MKV header infos with mkvmerge in JSON format, analyse it and build commands for mkvpropedit to change whatever you want.
Good Luck :)
