“One of our client has provided us around 50 .MXF files from his videographer and we are new to MXF format files. We tried opening it on our VLC player, but the files dont play. And when i import to fcp for editing, it also refuse them. So how to work with such MXF files?”

MXF is an acronym for for Material Exchange Format. The MXF file format was designed by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers. Files that contain the .mxf file extension are often referred to as the digital equivalent of video tape. These files contain video and audio data as well as other data bitstreams. They can be used in video recorders, cameras and on computers. The MXF file format is a container format and MXF files can be converted into other video formats when needed. However, the proper video codec must be present in order to play the video that is contained in the MXF container file.

While if you want to play Sony/Panasonic/Canon MXF recordings in media player like QuickTime or Windows Media player, or edit in Final Cut Pro, iMovie, Final Cut Express, Avid Media Composer, or Adobe Premiere, or upload to YouTube for sharing, or even burn MXF footage to a blank DVD, you must be disappointed to find that you cannot do that because none of above players, editing software, online video sites or disc burners can support this MXF video codec. The first thing to make it work is to convert your MXF recordings to MOV, MKV, MP4, AVI, MPG, WMV, and FLV for playing, editing, uploading or burning.
