Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

I have an mkv file, no audio and an .ac3 track. I can't find any apps to merge them, can anyone help?

    I don't have any direct experience with this, but I wonder whether iLife could do this for you? You may just need to convert the formats to something that iMovie/garage band can deal with?

    I'd just get access to windows or Linux and use MKVToolnix

    This might also work (just googled "mkv mux mac"): http://www.emmgunn.com/mokgvm2dvd/mokgvmdownload.html

    And you might consider transcoding the audio track, because that ac3 shit is seriously irritating sometimes.

    No way dude. Quicktime doesn't even know what MKV is and couldn't deal with AC3 last I checked. (could be changed now, but I'm used to thinking of Quicktime as being relentlessly mediocre.)

    ffmpeg should do what you need, though it has a bit of a learning curve; I use it to mux together raw video and audio streams quite often.

    And quicktime has grown up a bit; if you install perian it becomes able to read mkvs quite nicely.
