Corrupted video file fix

To get into the discussion of corrupted video files (an inproper closing of the file during saving of the gopro)

 

There's that perl fix and the Grau solution, but those don't always do the job.

 

And if you don't have the repair function on your older gopro, this could be handy!

 

There is an good old program called MPEG streamclip (free) that in 90 % of the corrupted files will be your solution.

 

It sees the mov or mp4 as a closed file and then you can convert it into every format you like, without any loss of quality.

 

It did the trick for me many times with corrupted media files!

 

Don't know if it's available for windows but on OSX it will probably work for your recovery!
