How to save chapters to mkv

Ulf Zibis
Hi,

as far as I know, the Matroska format is able to save chapter information.

As input I have 23 VOB files, each represents a chapter. I want to
transcode this to MPEG-4 in a single MKV file with chapter markers.
How does this work?

Thanks,
-Ulf

Write manually chapter metadata file, or use mkvmerge somehow.

Hm, this sounds difficult, because the timestamps of the input files are
little corrupted (but -i "concat:file1|file2.. -c copy repairs it). So I
don't have an idea, how to get the correct timestamps and manually
preparing the metadata file for 23 input files seems a lot of work.
