The VOB2MKV project is hosted here:


VOB2MKV-1.0.3 is a maintenance release.  The primary change is that the MKV
mux filter now writes a separate SeekHead element at the end of the file,
that describes the locations of the clusters.  I have confirmed that files
having a cluster index organized this way can be played back successfully on
the Western Digital HD TV Media Player.

The MKVSOURCE filter was also modified to be able to parse MKV files having
a cluster index organized this way.  A DirectShow source filter allows you
to render MKV files in any DirectShow-based media player, such as Windows
Media Player.  The MKVSOURCE filter supports seeking based on media time,
allowing you to jump to any position in the file.

A few other bugs were also fixed.  The Downloads page has more information.

Full source code is provided for all of the DirectShow filters in the
VOB2MKV project.  You can find the source code on the Source Code tab of the
project home page, or use SVN to download it directly.  The URL for the
Subversion repository is:
