MKV is a popular container format used for video files. Sometimes, I need to change the headers of a file. For example, to set a different audio channel as default or to disable it and so on. All such header operations are easy to perform using the GUI tool of MKVToolNix.

To install the GUI tool:

$ sudo apt install mktoolnix-gui

Tried with: MKVToolNix 8.8.0 and Ubuntu 16.04
