MXF is known as Material eXchange Format, which stores video, audio and other programmed data together. You may have been given the MXF files which were shot on a professional camcorder like Sony XDCAM, Panasonic HVX200, Canon XF305/XF300/XF100, etc. And you may find it pretty difficult to:
Play MXF files in VLC, Windows Media Player, and QuickTime
View MXF on portable devices like Samsung Galaxy, HTC, BlackBerry, Zune, iPhone, iPad, iPod, etc
Edit MXF in video editor such as iMovie, Windows Movie Maker, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, and so on.
When you meet these problems, you'd better convert the MXF files into a more popular and common video format like MP4. Compared with MXF, MP4 is more acceptable by most applications and devices.
