I am attempting to wrap an Avid DNxHD file into an MXF but I keep getting an error saying the app can't find dict.xml. I have copied dict.xml into the folder containing mxfwrap and I am running this from within this folder. I just installed mxflib-beta-1.0.1 and 'make check' returned all oks. Any ideas? I have also tried several different options but everything I do returns this error.

Thanks for any ideas.

MXFLib uses the host OS's 'standard' locations for for the dictionary files. For OSX it uses the *nix standard of "/usr/local/share/mxflib" but you can override this by setting MXFLIB_DATA_DIR

To have the dictionary in the working directory you will need to do:


before running mxfwrap
