    Hello,

    I can extract custom metadata from the Arri Alexa Camera generated MXF file using the windows mxfsplit -a  <mxf> command - see below -.

    Unfortunately when I compile the mxfsplit on 10.7.3 os x then I only see the  raw data. Any idea or example
    how I could get the metadata under os x ?

    win:

       OperationalPattern = MXFOP1a - MXF OP1a SingleItem SinglePackage
        EssenceContainers = MXFGC - MXF Generic Container, MXFGCAESBWF - MXF-GC AES-BWF Audio, GenericEssenceContainerMultipleWrappings - Empty Generic Container
          AUID = MXFGC - MXF Generic Container
          AUID = MXFGCAESBWF - MXF-GC AES-BWF Audio
          AUID = GenericEssenceContainerMultipleWrappings - Empty Generic Container
        DMSchemes =
      XMLDocumentTextIndirect = <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

    Which source are you compiling under OS X?

    The CVS source is significantly more recent than the last source release.
