“I’m using Canon XF305 camera and the output is .MXF, now I want to convert .mxf to .vob so that I can play it on Television through my DVD player. Then in that case what is the right format to be chosen?” The question was put up by one of my friend the other day. It seems that many Canon XF 300/305 camcorder users, especially beginners and amateurs, are trapped by the .mxf format that the Canon XF series use. Comparing with .mxf, most people prefer to edit a more robust format such as ProRes and MPEG-2, or play a more prevalent format such as AVI or MP4. If you’d like to watch the Canon .mxf footage on TV, it is advised that you convert .mxf to .vob or other format that your DVD player supports. The following guide shows how to convert .mxf to .vob with Pavtube HD Video Converter, which is capable of converting MXF to VOB, MPG, ProRes 422, AVI, MP4, MKV, TS and many other popular video and audio formats.
