I managed to download the full repository with MLVFS.dmg and installed OSXFUSE 4.12.

Then I clicked MLVFS.workflow and it added it to the context menu.

I select an empty folder, that see how localhost opens in browser, but it displays this: https://ibb.co/w7sYzPh

Something seems to be broken. I've used MLVFS on mac a few years ago but now it can't start correctly...

I have macOS Catalina 10.15.7

Please help me to make it work again!

It seems that I can't download MLVFS.dmg correctly from Amazon S3. I'm in Turkey now, maybe it's some kind of network problem.

Could you be so kind to upload this dmg somewhere so I can Install it?

Thanks!

I noticed some weird bug recently - when I render video from Davinci in final output there are some random frames in the middle.

When I preview or playback in Davinci - there is none of that.

I suppose this is some kind of bug with MLVFS.

Did someone experience something similar?

I'm sure there is some kind of solution to handle that.

I remember days when it worked smoothly.

Maybe older versions of Dokan do the job?

Okay I'm trying to mount MLVFS for the first time, using the cmd line-

mlvfs.exe --mlv_dir=E:\Canon Temp\East London Castle\Rudes\Iceman.mlv

However I'm getting
MLVFS: no mlv path specified

What's wrong with the formatting? Can someone clarify what <mount point> is supposed to be? Not very clear explanation.

Edit: I managed to find the path, but it's not telling access is denied and that this version of the software cannot run on my PC...

Avoid blanks in path and file names or use " or SFN (Short File Names convention).

Hi,

I can't use MLVFS on mac Big Sur. Has anyone had the same issue? Been using it for years, I had just finished a project using it and then decided to update my OS to Big Sur. Now I need to access those files again but localhost:8000 won't connect. Got the "macOS cannot verify the developer of “mlvfs”. Are you sure you want to open it?" but when I allow nothing seems to be working.

Any help? Are there other alternatives? Thanks for your help!

Ok got it to work. So in case it happens to someone I did a reinstall of everything and it works... refresh the localhost:8000 page at the end.

Cheers

Hi ciaranhmc,
I was wondering how well MLVFS works for you ? I'm also on Big Sur and I don't know if I'm doing something wrong but once le MLV folders are mounted they are unusable for me in Resolve. I mean when I import in Resolve everything is so slow that it is unusable.
If I export my 5K anamorphic footage as cDNG in the MLV app everything works fine. What's your experience ? Thanks !

Julien

I also was a happy user of mlvfs about a year ago. In the meantime I updated my mac from MacOS 10.14 Mojave to MacOS 12 Monterey and now I cannot connect to my CDNGs anymore... I get a message "http://localhost:8000 could not be opened"

At the time I linked the dynamically created cDNGs directly in a DaVinci project and now I am hoping to successfully open the project again.
please, has anybody fixed this?

btw. I got 200Gigs of footage from that project that I would love to permanently convert to a compressed cDNG so I can finally archive it. Is there a better way of dealing with MLVs in an "RAW" kind of way?

Hey ! Did you got MLVFS working on Monterey ?
MLVApp is great, but working with Resolve and being able to work with the .mlv files "almost" natively is a huge time saver !

I have it working with Ventura even. I run mlvfs through program Switch. Arm64 fuse install is needed.
