MKVToolnix for Mac

A short how-to to install MKVtoolinx using homebrew

Alberto Negron true

MKVToolNix is a small collection of tools (mkvmerge, mkvinfo, mkvextract, mkvpropedit and mmg) that allows you to manipulate Matroska (MKV) files in several ways.

This is my cheatsheet for future reference.

if Installation appears successful mkvtoolnix-gui exists at /usr/local/bin/mkvtoolnix-gui

Now you can use the gui tool to edit your MKV/mp4 files.
