Can't add .ogg audio file, says file cannot be used as audio track
« on: September 04, 2018, 03:22:57 AM »
Version 2.7.1 Build 180807
mkv video imported, tried to replace audio track but it won't accept the file.
I suspect the issue is related to some special characters in the metadata but I don't really see why that would be an issue... It's a pretty regular file otherwise.

The vorbis audio codec is only supported whilst re-encoding existing audio track in video.
For now you could use MKVToolnix GUI for adding ogm audio track to the video.
Perhaps this will change in future when developer(s) have a look at this.

Bumping this as a feature request, along with the same for AAC for MP4.
Kinda sad that I can demux these things but can't mux and match so to speak...

Raw AAC as well as ADTS encapsulated AAC is supported since ages (with HE-AAC support fixed recently). If you mean support for audio-only mp4 files (m4a) as external audio track, conversion m4a <--> raw AAC is easily done with ffmpeg.
