If you get a 'VCOMP100.DLL' missing error when starting the app. install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package: MKV Tag Editor is shareware. Unregistered version is a fully functional 25 day trial version. If you like this software please register.


The default target when editing audio files (MKA) is 30 (song/track), in case of video files (MKV, MK3D) the default target is 50 (episode). More info about target types.
Only one (the first) target branch is editable. To edit multiple branches of the same target type please use the 'Edit tags tree' window.
Importing a complete tags structure for multiple selected files is also only available with the tree-view edit. The detailed tag editing for multiple files will only update the currently selected target in them.
Selecting a target will not affect the following tags (also their default positions - they are always set to the target specified below):

  • Total tracks: 'TOTAL_PARTS' - '50'
  • CD: 'PART_NUMBER' - '50'
  • Total CDs: 'TOTAL_PARTS' - '60'
  • Artist sort order: 'SORT_WITH' - '70'
  • Album sort order: 'SORT_WITH' - '50'
  • 'DATE_TAGGED' is always set for '50' target
  • TV network: 'TV_NETWORK' - '70'
  • Season number: 'PART_NUMBER' - '60'
