  1. Just to preface this post, I received a video this morning via email; I can't exactly divulge it's supposed contents, nor can I share it (it's really sort of private and no it's not porn XD), but whenever I try to play it, it doesn't work. I have tried VLC, WMP, MPC-HC and even RealPlayer, all to no avail.

    Playing the video in MPC-HC produces the following error:

    File Source (Async.)::Output

    Opening the video in MediaInfo only reveals the following:

    General
    Complete name : C:\[REDACTED].mp4
    Format : MPEG-4
    Format profile : Base Media
    Codec ID : isom
    File size : 14.5 MiB
    The hex code for the file looks like this, was wondering if anyone here would be able to identify a broken header or something:

    Anyone have any suggestions? I have also tried re-downloading the email attachment 3 times, through 2 different browsers; same result

    I really need to be able to see what this video contains so if anyone is able to help, it would be most appreciated.

    Thanks

  2. Also, here is the end of the hex code, incase there is something meaningful there:

    That's a video from some sort of phone that does variable frame rate I believe. Posting/knowing the HEX data is probably not going to help.....the complete MediaInfo data would provide more info.

    That little passage of text I posted before is all the info MediaInfo gives me when analysing the file.

    You might try 'AtomicParsley' and see what it tells you about the structure. Go to CMD screen and type:

    "c:\pathToAtomicParley\AtomicParsley.exe" "C:\pathToVideo\VideoName.MP4 -T"

    You will get error msgs or a display similar to the following:
