    Hi All the expert members out here,

    I am pretty new here. However before posting this I have tried to do my due diligence on searching the forum forum for the solution for my problem. However I could not find one.

    Here is the Problem which I am having, I have a movie mp4 file which a friend of mine gave it to me and and it is about 1.5GB. I dont know the source of it, however the file seems to be completely unplayable. I tried all different players (Quicktime, VLC, windows media player etc). Also I tried to open the file in other software to change it to avi or another format, using Loiloscope but could not open it.

    So I start more poking around and see if I can find some solution -- There was a solution about Grub Video Repair tool, I tried that as well, it did not work. Then I checked whether the file can be repaired or not going on Found that file can be repaired.

    So then I started to see where the file could be wrong, there were some suggestions to check Atomic Parsley -- See the image Click image for larger version

    W=rJZlε S?.

    Based on what I can interpret from my limited knowledge base that somewhere in the MP4 file the headers are corrputed, because when I looked the media info and atomic parsley of known good files i could get expected output.

    Anykind of help is greatly appreciated..

    You can try untrunc (in a Linux emulator) and recover_mp4_to_h264. In both cases you will need to supply a healthy MP4 file with what you believe to be a matching structure.

  3. Have you tried FFMPEG or WinFF?
