View Full Version : Corrupt .MOV files - free repair - or combine two files

03-13-2016, 12:47 PM
I'm trying to recover some video that somehow got corrupt on an SD card. I was actually able to recover the files - and found a program that will bring them back to life - but only 50% of the file do they give you for free. Some simple math tells me that if I just duplicate the file - and can somehow merge the two - end to end - I will get the full result - even though the program does only 50%. Problem is... quick time or Imovie once doubled -can't save it correctly.

SO. I need to know - is there a a source to repair the ENTIRE video - OR - can you tell me how to merge the two files to be one? I watched a youtube vid that a guy did using a command promt for a PC - is there a similar process that could be done on a MA?

What happens when you try to save the file?

So it looks like I need something like this that I found in a blog. There was a HEX editor in the itunes store for free... was able to do as it say..but it saves as an .exe GRRR

or from any site
>******All we know this utality repairs only half length.
>open video in hex editor
>copy all code and paste it at the end.
>save as the file.
>Repair that file with utality.
>Repaired file will have a full length video.
