An example would be if I want Dolby TrueHD tracks to say "Dolby TrueHD" instead of "Surround." Another example is the video tracked being labeled MPEG-4 AVC if it's MPEG-4 and VC-1 if it's VC-1 based on codec information instead of being unlabeled and having no name.
I don't know of a way to do this with MakeMKV, it might be possible with the GUI itself in the advanced options for default profiles but every movie is different and it will most likely be different for each disc...
There is, however, a way to do this with Handbrake CLI.
Unfortunately, this means converting something twice (first with MakeMKV, then with Handbrake) in order to get the result you need.
Also, there is no way to name the video tracks of an MKV container as far as I'm aware, I'd like to know this too, but I rarely use multiple video tracks within the same MKV.
Here's an example;
Code: Select all
"C:\Program Files\Handbrake\HandBrakeCLI.exe" -i "D:\MyMovieInput.mkv" -o "D:\MyMovieOutput.mkv" -E ac3 --audio-fallback ffac3 -e x264 -a 1,2,3 -A "7.1 HD Surround Sound","5.1 Surround Sound","Director's Commentary" -E copy:dtshd,copy:dts,ac3 -B auto,auto,160 -R 48000,48000,44100 -6 7point1,5point1,stereo
In the above command, the important parameters related to your questions are;
Select which audio tracks to convert
Code: Select all
-A "7.1 HD Surround Sound","5.1 Surround Sound","Director's Commentary"
'Friendly' names for each audio track, must be wrapped in quotes
Encode audio in which format
(av_aac, fdk_aac, fdk_haac, copy:aac, ac3, copy:ac3, copy:dts, copy:dtshd, mp3, copy:mp3, vorbis, flac16, flac24, copy)
copy:* will passthrough the corresponding audio unmodified to the muxer if it is a supported passthrough audio type.
The audio bitrate for each track (kb/s)
Set audio samplerate(s)
Format(s) for audio downmixing/upmixing

I know this an old post but I thought it might be useful to someone looking to name their audio tracks instead of being auto-named by MakeMKV
