Lost video when using Photorec

#1 Post by iLiKeTeHkiLLU »

I accidentally deleted an AVI video, so I used Photorec to get it back. The video was about 10 minutes long, and was around 950mb. When I recovered the file, it was still the size of 950mb, but when it was played it would only show the first 52 seconds. Please help

The original file was probably fragmented. Try various player like mplayer, vlc..., maybe one of them will be able to resynchronize with the video stream.
