Which software plays the sample?

Please provide a sample.

comment:2 by shroomM, 9 years ago

Well, I thought it was the latest VLC but it turns out an ancient version of VLC can play it... 1.1.4, The Luggage.

The latest version does NOT play it.

It's a bit hard for me to provide a sample since:

  • it's copyrighted material
  • it's 15GB of copyrighted material

Any other ideas how we could solve this?

Edit: spelling

Please close the ticket, the MXF file was corrupted.

Sorry for the mistake.

If any software (like old vlc) is able to decode the file, FFmpeg should imo also support it.

But without a sample, this is unlikely to happen.
