    ..while the other file just reports:

    Format : MPEG-4
    Format profile : Base Media / Version 2
    Codec ID : mp42
    File size : 320 MiB

    ...and nothing more.

    Do you know any good software (payware aswell) to restore that important clip?
    Thank you in advance

    I use Video repair tool. It has worked for most corrupt files. Try first the free trial and see if it works at all, you choose the corrupt file and a working sample.
