    Can VLC Play MXF?

    I read  that VLC can easily play MXF but it's not working on mine. I have the latet VLC player.

    Any solutions?

    Thank you.

    The question is which kind of mxf files can be played. There are so many flavours, codecs, etc. I think it's nearly impossible to build a player, that plays all of them.

    Thanks.

    I'm trying to play the Avid MXF files from the Media folder.

    Does a pretty good job of playing back OP1A MXF files (XDCam, P2, etc - video and audio are part of the same file) but Avid uses the OP-Atom format of MXF (video and audio are split) so it may not work very well.

    I use the following to play DNxHD MXFs in QuickTime:

    Works pretty well.

    What's nice about the Calibrated software is that you can install the codec for free and play files either in QT or QuickLook without paying for the installation. You're limited to viewing only the first 30 seconds of the clip, but I often find this is enough to ID a shot, check the slate, etc. And it works on a Mac.
