Some of my videos only show up as jpegs

#1 Post by Domi »

I used photorec to try to recover vacation pics and videos from my cameras memory card that had been erased. I had used the camera several times since erasing and after running photorec the videos I want are only showing up as jpegs. Does this mean that I can no longer retrieve the videos? is there a deeper scan I can use? or anything else that I can do to recover the lost videos?
Thanks so much,

perhaps your videos were encoded as MJPEG, so, they are a chain of jpegs... perhaps you may be able to use some encoding tools to recompute a video with all your pics ?
