MXF Player on GPU

This is quite simple task to check how VLC Player or Windows Media Player can play MXF files from HDD/SSD. Even for 2K, the playback is extremely slow on a powerful PC and is far from being realtime or smooth. Moreover, conventional MXF workflow for frame preview, implies that MXF files have to be converted to MP4/MOV/AVI to watch video in any media player. Nevertheless, there is a way to play MXF files smoothly on Windows or Linux directly, without doing any preliminary conversion. Just try Fastvideo MXF Player which is working on NVIDIA GPU in real-time with 2K MXF files (4K MXF is coming soon).

MXF is an abbreviation for Material Exchange Format, which is a container format for professional digital video and audio media defined by a set of standards from the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE). MXF is a file format for the exchange of material between servers, tape streamers and digital archives.
