Best way to play Panasonic p2 MXF files in windows 7 with high quality video/audio

Using a Panasonic AJ-PX270 camcorder, I recorded a clip using AVC-G25/60i.
It created a Panasonic P2 “Content” folder with the following format:
AVC-G25/60i using Line & Frequency: 1080-59.94i
Here is the MXF file buried inside the “Content” folder.
Download “AVC-LongG_25_1080-59.94i.MXF”

The MXF file does not play in VLC. Why?

The same problem occurs for recordings formatted as AVC-G25/60p.

* Software & Hardware *
VLC media player (2.1.5 Rincewind)
Windows 7 Pro 64-bit SP1
Panasonic AJ-PX270 P2 HD Camcorder (Firmware: 11.31)
Patriot SDXC 64 GB, Class 10, UHS-1, PEF64GSXC10233-PC

I installed the Panasonic P2 drivers.
P2 Driver Software Windows (64-bit)

MXF video is recorded by high end professional camcorders such as from Panasonic P2 camcorders, but MXF video files is not editable directly on Windows 7, nor it is playable on VLC player and neither it is editable on software like Windows Movie Maker, Adobe Premiere Pro.
To achieve a fast and fluid workflow of MOV files with various different codec with VLC, the best way is encoding MXF to WMV/MP4/MOV high quality and high performance video codec, which have large file size but will render faster and leaves more room to work, so you can create great looking effects without losing any quality.
