MKV notes

  • The default target when editing audio files (MKA) is 30 (song/track), in case of video files (MKV, MK3D) the default target is 50 (episode/movie). More info about target types.
  • Only one (the first) target branch is editable. To edit multiple branches of the same target type please use the 'Edit tags tree' window.
  • Sort order tags are only written if the according main tag is present. Eg. title sort order is only written if title is also set (before editing the sort order tag).
  • When editing chapter tags (the chapter list is visible), if no chapter is selected the tags are edited for the selected edition, when a chapter is selected the tags are edited for the selected chapter. When the context is modified, eg. a chapter is selected then the tags are re-displayed for the selected chapter, or if chapter list is deselected the context switches to editing currently selected edition's tags. If the chapter list is closed the context switches to normal (non-chapter) mode.
  • Importing a complete tags structure for multiple selected files is also only available with the tree-view edit. The detailed tag editing for multiple files will only update the currently selected target in them.
  • Selecting a target will not affect the following tags (also their default positions - they are always set to the target specified below):

  • Total tracks: 'TOTAL_PARTS' - '50'
  • CD: 'PART_NUMBER' - '50'
  • Total CDs: 'TOTAL_PARTS' - '60'
  • TV network: 'TV_NETWORK' - '70'
  • Show: 'TITLE' - '70'
  • Season number: 'PART_NUMBER' - '60'
More info on tags in general:

When setting the iTunMOVI XML tag, cast is set in the 'cast' XML branch. Involved peoples are set in the specified "Function" branch.
iTunes sets for example directors in the "directors" branch, so you have to specify the director as a "Function" 'directors' even when there is only 1 director.
Please try saving an example MP4 file with iTunes to find out other crew "Function" names.
