MXF, short form for Material exchange Format, is a container format (Like AVI) for professional digital video and audio media defined by a set of SMPTE standards. This kind of files are often recorded by some high definition cameras, such like Sony PXW-X70 series. As the example showed here:

‘Hello guys, I several days ago took some exciting challenge videos with my Sony PXW-X70 XDCAM camcorder. But I was refused to edit my footage in iMovie and get into MP4 Media Player for playback. How does it go wrong? Appreciate if there’s a big favor’
