Repair video recording that was never stopped

#1

Hey wondering if there’s a way to fix a .mov file that was recorded in VDMX via the video recorder plugin (.h264/aac), but that was never ‘stopped’ because of a power failure. I’m left with a 2gb .mov file that no software seems to be able to open. Anybody know of a way to possibly this? Has happened more than I’d like to admit. Thanks for any advice!

Maybe try MPEG Streamclip? Or run some FFMPEG commands and see if it can fix the video?

I’ve had similar issues - though from vdmx crashing. unfortunately im not recalling any good solutions. Think using qt 7 on an older machine was my solve. mpeg sreamclip (also on older machine since it is 32bit app like qt7 and no longer will run on newer mac os) - might also work.

maybe ffworks/ffmpeg on newer os? though I want to say that also doesnt really work.

I have switched to using http://syphon.v002.info/recorder/
If vdmx crashes the recordings are still useable. not sure about your power issues.

sounds like a UPS would be good investment?
