  • File used was RDRC_EastRC_Promo1_W640.wmv (Fly For Tots Invitation), taken from http://flightpass.higherplaneproductions.com/gallery2/main.php?g2_itemId=146
  • Used the following command to convert the file: ffmpeg -i RDRC_EastRC_Promo1_W640.wmv -vcodec mpeg2video -qscale 1 -qmin 1 -intra -ar 48000 RDRC_EastRC_Promo1_W640.mxf
  • Note: FITS tools don't recognize the MXF format and only generate a small amount of generic file metadata as a result.
