most of the time the chapters I encounter have only generic names like "Chapter xx" or they use the start time of the chapter as chapter name. For me this chapter item only contains only timing information and the chapter name is actually redundant and superfluous. Given that the
ChapterDisplay element is not mandatory, I propose the following changes:
- Add an option to not set to not set a
ChapterDisplayitem by default for new chapters (both when creating new chapters in the chapter editor and when adding a chapter file that not explicitly contains information that is translated to
ChapterDisplayelements in Matroska (I am thinking of Bluray-playlists, but there might be others).
- Add an option in the chapter editor to discard
Chapterdisplayinformation (one of these "Additional modifications").
- Right now mkvmerge seems to always use the "Chapter %d" format when using a BD-playlist as input file; it currently doesn't honor the defaults for the chapter editor. This should be changed to match the behaviour of the chapter editor.
