MXF is the abbreviations for Material eXchange Format which is an object-based file format that wraps video, audio, and other bitstreams ("essences"), optimized for content interoperability by manufacturers and major organizations such as Pro-MPEG, the EBU and the AAF Association. It is intended for implementation in devices ranging from various cameras and video recorders to computer systems.
What closely linked with our life is that more and more professional AVCHD HD camcorders have taken MXF as the default output video format, like Panasonic P2, Canon XF series, Sony XDCAM, etc. Meanwhile, MXF is supported by an increasing number of professional NLE (non-linear editing) systems like Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro X, Sony Vegas Pro and more.
However, as a general user, you may get frustrated and upset when exporting MXF videos from your camcorder. Despite of some third-party media players and pricy video editors, you cannot directly play MXF files in Windows Media Player, iTunes, iPhone/iPad/iPod, smart TV. You cannot edit MXF files in Windows Movie Maker, iMovie, QuickTime. You cannot directly upload MXF files to Youtube, Vimeo, Facebook etc.
The most direct solution to solve the issues above is to convert MXF files to mainstream formats, such as convert MXF to MP4, convert MXF to MOV, convert MXF to AVI, convert MXF to WMV, MKV, FLV, WebM, etc, so that you can handle MXF files on most popular players, editors and portable devices.
