“Hi, I am in a difficult situation. Last day, I was recording a short movie using my personal camcorder. I had almost shot thirty three minutes of video. Even though battery charge of camera was in low state, I just ignored it and continued to shoot further. As a consequence, camcorder got switched off suddenly. I started the camcorder again to see there is any problem with recording. Video file was there, but it got corrupted. I simply don’t know what to do for repairing video file which got damaged. Can anyone tell me how to repair video file irrespective of the video format or recorded device?”
