MXF support in GStreamer

Sebastian Dröge is finishing up a major piece of work these days in terms of adding support for the MXF container format in GStreamer and Pitivi.
This is a complex format and we found that there is not a lot of easily findable sample content out there on the interweb. So we request that those of you out there with applications which can generate MXF files, like Avid and Final Cut Pro, please provide us with short samples along with a description of which codecs are inside and which application generated the file. Attach any such files you are able to generate to reports in GStreamer bugzilla.

I filed a bug with some Avid MXF files. The files should probably be hosted somewhere, bugzilla doesn’t want to take an 8 meg file

gavl from Gmerlin has tackled MXF-problems. So I guess Burkhard has got some MXF’s lying around. Actually, a couple of guys doing video editors has AFAIK made a repository of such test clips (from cameras that is). They’ve got an MXF from my Panasonic HVX200 camera.

Takker for tipset :) I just email Burkhard asking him about those files and hopefully he is willing to share them.

*uraeus*: Kult, norsk ;-)

Well, it could actually be Richard Spindler of OpenMovieEditor-fame. I guess Burkhard will know.

MXF4mac provides a MXF exporter for QuickTime. You can download two sample files from their website:
