       mkvtoolnix-gui(1) is a Qt based GUI for mkvmerge(1). It also implements mkvinfo(1)'s and
       mkvpropedit(1)'s functionality and will evolve to cover mkvextract(1) as well. All

       those configuration files in the appropriate tool. Any other file name is added as a

       --info, --edit-chapters or --edit-headers. The default mode is adding files for

       Note that if an instance of the application is already running when the application is

       already-running instance.
