How do I play Sony PMW-200 XDCAM footage with Quicktime on Mac

Read this guide to learn how to convert Sony PMW-200 MXF to QuickTime MOV with Mac MXF to QuickTime Converter. 


"I have been supplied a MXF file that has come from Sony PMW-200 camcorder that I want to deliver my current clients to play directly on my new Mac PowerBook. It’s an XDCAM codec, now I 'm using QuickTime Player. I notice they can play a ProRes version without having anything additional installed; but when we tried an XDCAM version, no go. So is there an easy way for them to get a plug-in that will allow Quicktime to play the XDCAM movie file format from PMW-200 without having FCP installed on their laptop? ProRes is great, but it's a rather large file for their laptop."

Just like the users above, you may want to play the xdcam footages from Sony PMW-200 with QuickTime on Mac natively. But, as we know, for video codecs recorded by Sony PMW-200, they are not friendly to QuickTime Player. As I understand from a little digging, I think you need to try trashing the preferences for QT Player. So the best solution is transcode Sony PMW-200 XDCAM files to QT best supported codec. After testing, we found that as long as xdcam video been previously converted to the Quicktime .mov format, you can get Sony PMW-200 XDCAM MXF video to play with QuickTime easily.
