Aunsoft Video Converter - Transcode Canon XF105 P2 MXF to VLC

For recording our family trip, I borrowed Sony XF-105 from my friends, because Sony XF-105 is really portable. Its handy appearance is specially designed for out door activities. Sony XF-105 mainly supports to output P2 and MXF files with 1920×1080 high quality.

But when it came to the step of postproduction, problems came one after another. First and the most important one is how should I play Canon XF105 P2 MXF in VLC player?

As is known, VLC player limits its importing video formats. P2 and MXF are not compatible to this player. Hence, the conversion of them is to the point! It not only offers the fastest conversion speed and wonderful quality of converted videos, but also brings the remarkable video review experience to video photographers on the desktop.
