My avi file is broken I tried to fix it with VLC?

download codecQuestion : My avi file is broken I tried to fix it with VLC but it only fixed 22 minutes of it? The actual video is 1 hour long. I was wondering if anyone knows how to fix the rest of it using VLC?

Best answer:

VLC will only go so far when the file itself is broken. If you cant get the entire file then maybe the rest of the file is far to corrupted to fix and VLC cannot fix the missing or broken segments in the video. What you can do is to locate VirtualDub on the internet as that has a much better ability than VLC will.

The advantage is that VirtualDub will recover the broken segments. It does not mean you will have sound or proper video as it will simply recover the broken segments as is and that no program can fix. VD however is the best short at video recovery and far better than VLC will ever go.

  1. Try downloading the same “avi” file from a different website.

    VLC can only do so much, specially with copy-protected files.
