Is there a way to play .mxf files on Mate 9?
“Hi all, has anyone successfully played MXF clips on Mate 9? I have some MXF clips copied from a Canon camera, which Mate 9 doesn’t play. I’m wondering if there is any workarounds to make Mate 9 recognize MXF media. Does anyone have any ideas on this? Thanks for any reply.”

Before answer the question, let’s have a look at Mate 9 supported video types.

Mate 9 supported video files
Video decoding formats: 4K video, H.265, H.264, H.263, MPEG-4, MPEG-2, RV7-10, Xvid, VP8, WMV9
Video file formats: 3GP, MP4, WMV, RM, RMVB, and ASF

If your video format does not appear in the above mentioned list, the stock player in Mate 9 will not play them. In that case, you can try some other media player like VLC, MX Player and BS Player. If this still doesn’t work, we would recommend converting your video to a format that is compatible with Mate 9 first. Here’s how.
