Hi there guys, been trying to sort this out for days now i cant figure it out.
From the beginning:
-I recorded a video on my phone, my phone died while i was still recording.
-This corrupted the mp4 file, which made in unplayable on any device. So i sent it to my PC and restored the file using Grau gmbH. And it worked. The file is now playable. Though all i can see is a black screen, sometimes grey (if i use VLC) with some green sections in it too. The sound is 100% there but there is no picture whatsoever.
Is there any way to get it working again? i would rather sacrafice the sound for the picture if thats the best result, as opposed to having sound but no Picture.
Thanks in advance

You could also try recover_mp4.
It's a command line/prompt software so it's not that easy, see
Step 1: Use any good previous file with the same resolution and bitrate to generate the header files, for example >recover_mp4.exe good.mp4 --analyze It will create files 'video.hdr' and 'audio.hdr' in the current directory and print instructions (ffmpeg options, etc.). Step 2: Recover streams from the corrupted file, for example >recover_mp4.exe bad.mp4 recovered.h264 recovered.aac Note: Files 'video.hdr' and 'audio.hdr' must be exist. Probably you need to add a specific option (look at instructions from step 1). Step 3: Use any other utility (Yamb or ffmpeg for example) to recreate the MP4/MOV file from the streams (recovered.h264 and recovered.aac). >ffmpeg.exe -r 30 -i recovered.h264 -i recovered.aac -bsf:a aac_adtstoasc -c:v copy -c:a copy recovered.mp4
