Hello,

Im trying to correct the "Title" tag on a .MKV file but it seems it doesnt let me.

Is there a way to do it without reencoding or anything?

And how are you trying to do this exactly? You can use MKVToolnix under global



This has always worked for me. Go to the full post

I actually tried with that tool. Changed the title there and hit "Start muxing" at the bottom. Problem is that file size changed.......substantially. Thats the only thing I touched.

Is this normal? We are talking (off the top of my head) 3MB

I wouldn't worry about it too much - did the file play fine? Did it get bigger or smaller.

I don't normally worry about the title too much, stuff I rip with makemkv normally has right title, etc. But for a test I just edited 1 and it shrunk by 1MB, which I would think is a good thing ;)
