An .mxv file is a video file type associated with the Movie Edit Pro program. An .avi file is a common video file format, playable with many media player applications. The .avi file can be encoded in DIVX format, creating a .divx file, which is a high-quality video file type. A .mxv file can be converted to .divx or .avi using an appropriate software application.

Download, install and run Magix Movie Edit Pro (free trial, see Resources section), or open the program if it is already installed.
