I'm a freelance tv producer, mainly music and comedy. Now I have some source video from EVS XT3 multichannel video server, what I want to do is to put my edited Avid MXF video onto YouTube for sharing.

After editing MXF in Avid MC, I'm trying to import Avid DNxHD 36 media from Media Composer 5.5, but I get some issue saying that the codec isn't supported. Am I wrong that DNxHD is supposed to be native in Premiere Pro CS5+? Let alone uploading the MXF files onto Youtube.
