Mastroska as a general audio-container - useable?

Hi there,

I've been thinking about using Matroska as a general audio-container solution in oder to display stuff like lyrics, in-depth information and more about my music.

AFAIK there are no software muxing applications that allow for a comfortable editing and final mastering of a .mka-file, right? The only file I was able to grab was AVIMux-GUI, and it did not a good job in muxing SRT-files (as a lyrics solution) and, say, an MP3-file.

So, what is recommended to use in order to include different audio files (MPC, Vorbis, MP3, FLAC) in an .mka-container, preferably with lyrics, common tags and, eventually, more information such as covers ... ?

Thanks

You might try MKVMerge. But AFAIK only MP1/2/3, Vorbis and (HE-)AAC are supported. No FLAC or MPC (yet).
You can already have nice tags.

FLAC is supported. As of now I take a single FLAC file with tracks/chapters defined in the MKA by referencing an external CUE sheet, mux it with the original CUE sheet (for burning purposes) and the original EAC .log file, and mux them all into an MKA container. I see no reason other sorts of files could not be attached.

As far as "user friendly" things, try the MKVMerge GUI, aka "mmg." It is in the standard distribution for windows from the mkvmerge site. Personally I found it easier to write a batch file and use it to do things for me. You can find that here.

NOTE: MKVMerge is a slightly misleading name, as it can handle all sorts of files, not just video.
