Well, recently my computer here restarted due a small power failure and after restarting it the 'fsck' from Linux checked the filesystem for inconsistencies and sadly I lost the first blocks from three big AVI movies I had.
I checked the AVI files with an hex-editor and sadly I lost the headers and maybe two..five clusters, but I still think it's possible to repair the videos. I think I lost few initial seconds...
I need to say I don't know the audio/video codecs, bitrate, total time, etc.
So, I ask. Is it possible to build a new header from scratch? And treat the rest of the AVI file as video data like a stream or raw data?
And concatenate the header with the AVI file using a simple 'copy' command in DOS or 'cat' in Linux?
I tried using some tools like DivFix, Digital Video Repair...
If my english sounds bad I say my sincere sorries as I'm brazilian and I speak and mainly my thoughts are in portuguese language (You know, my brain/mind) But I think it's pretty cool. :P
