       I use the mxf lib.but if I parse a AVID mxf(OP Atom).there will be a lot of unknow keys.So I can't parse the metadata correctly.
       Is there any suggestion?

      Avid do use the MXF format, but they also pack a whole lot of extra info into the file that is useful for thier editors.

      If you ignore the non-standard keys the file should still be valid.

      If you need access to some of the "dark" information you could ask Avid for the keys of the items you require. Alternatively you could try and reverse-engineer the format; if so I daresay you would find many of the keys are the same as AAF uses (Avid also make very heavy use of AAF).

      If parsing Avid-specific files is important to you please e-mail me as I may be able to find someone that could help you.
