Using FFmpeg on macOS.

I have two MXF files (one recording that spanned across two files with 41 GB on the 1st and 13 GB on the 2nd)

  • Metadata on the second seems incomplete or corrupted.
  • 2nd file would not ingest or play in any DAW, Player or EncodingSoftware.
  • I tried everything I could find on the web
  • Upload it to pastebin or similar and share link – Gyan Nov 9 at 11:05
  • What makes you believe it's incomplete or corrupted? Are you getting any errors? If you have an error log, please add it to your question. I know you already found an answer, but for future readers it would be good to add the actual errors you are getting, so that they can actually find your question when they do a web search for it. – slhck Nov 10 at 9:33

I found this:

ffmpeg -i "concat:a01.mxf|b02.mxf" -y -c copy result.mxf

and it works. I ended up with a working MXF file that connects both streams.

Found it here. I hope this will help someone in the future.
