Only 1 minute readable in recovered MKV

I ran photorec to recover MKV files on a large ext4 partition with the 64bit flags (from a Synology NAS).

It found a lot of files and they seem to have the correct size (in gigabytes).
When I play them, it works fine but only for about 1 minute. Then the player acts like the file is corrupted (it either crashes or stops playing). The exact duration is different for each file, but it's never longer than 1 minute.

Any idea what is hapening?
