As far as I know, you have to patch them into the presets.xml file before compiling the program, which I did for the new MKV preset, but maybe it can also load external presets files--I'll have to research that, and perhaps request it on github. There's also a spot to change some audio settings in a preset, but I think that's broken at the moment--but the setting to copy the original audio does work, so you don't lose anything and it saves a bit of encoding time. I haven't tried tweaking any of the video settings otherwise.

Just updated Mystiq with a new preset as suggested by sunrat above: "MKV H265 No Resizing Higher Quality". Packages should be ready in a few minutes.

Also added VLC 3.0.9.2 backports for Stretch and Buster.

MystiQ is working nicely in Buster, thank you. I just put in a feature request on their GitHub asking to be able to save custom presets.

What's the difference between your VLC and the Buster one, Steve? The Buster version has just leapfrogged yours with a security update - 3.0.10-0+deb10u1

Buster's 3.10 works fine on my MX 19 "AHS" system, even the va-api acceleration, so I'd say go with that. I'll see about backporting it to MX 17 and Stretch in the OBS repo, though.
