How to Quickly Convert MXF to MOV (QuickTime) Video

by Christine Smith • Jul 23,2019 • Proven solutions

"I have Sony XDCAM and got the recorded files in MXF. When I tried to play it with QuickTime on Mac, only to get error prompts that MXF is not an acceptable file and can not be edited."

It's not uncommon for people to encounter such error while playing MXF files. MXF is a video container format that is mainly used in various digital camcorders like Canon, Panasonic, Sony, etc. to store audio, video and programmed data, but note that it's not compatible with QuickTime, iMovie, Final Cut Pro and other video editing software on Mac. To quickly solve it, you need a MXF to MOV video converter, which enables you to convert MXF to MOV on Mac/Windows. As far as I'm concerned, Wondershare UniConverter (originally Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate) is the best MXF converter for your choice.

How to Convert MXF to QuickTime MOV with Wondershare MXF Converter on Mac/Windows

Wondershare UniConverter enables you to quickly get QuickTime MOV files from MXF files to fit the various MOV compatible applications. Without further ado, let's learn how to effortlessly convert MXF to MOV in high video quality on your Windows or Mac devices. If needed, you can also convert MOV to MXF vice versa with this all-in-one video converter.

Step 1 Add MXF videos to the MXF to QuickTime MOV converter

First, export your MXF files from your camcorder to PC/Mac. Then, either click the +Add Files icon to load the MXF videos you want or directly drag your MXF videos to the program window. Multiple MXF videos can be added for batch conversion.
