    Hi all,

    I've recently recorded an AVI file with a camera that works fine. The recording is roughly 34mins, however when playing back (VLC, or windows media player) the first second of sound is heard (and the video is fine), but then the video freezes and the sound cuts off. It then plays for another 34mins like that (frozen vid/no sound).

    I would normally just assume the recording was bad but the fact that it plays for 34mins (when the recording is that long) gives me an impression perhaps the video file is fixable.

    i've tried virtualdubmod to re-save, divxfix+ to strip index and re-save, and divxrepair and none of them have helped.

    any ideas? have i just lost the video?

    thanks

    i had a dodgey avi file.I opened it in window movie maker and checked playback which seemed fine, saved it as video and it worked.It lost a lot of quality but it did play back fine.
