Hello List,

Does anyone know why this error is occurring when running ffprobe or ffmpeg
on a DNxHD 36 MXF file?

[mxf @ 02a108c0] error, essence data could not be found

Here are a couple of example files
http://kcintrab.com/examples/21228257V01.4E5282E6.9364A0.mxf - 259 MB
http://kcintrab.com/examples/reel_1ab_grd27.88919.mxf - 719 MB

Does something need to be added to be able to support these files?  I'd be
willing to do some coding, but need some direction as to what needs to be

thanks much,
