Online Video File Repair: How to Repair Damaged Video File

Updated by Brithny on Feb 22, 2023
Written by Tracy King


When a video file is broken due to various reasons, it is hard to get it back to its original state. Even if you could play it, it would not work with most video players. 

In reality, a video file is a collection of data that work together to produce the video you want to watch. One of these pieces of data is damaged, and then the video will be broken. For example, you cannot play a video file continuously when the index is damaged.

Check for the following symptoms to determine whether the video is corrupted. 

  • Corrupt video files.
  • When your video file has no sound, or it has only audio.
  • Synchronization issues between audio and video.
  • A black screen appears on videos. 
  • An error occurred on the video header, slider, and frame.
  • An error message such as "the video could not be played" or "the media file could not be loaded" occurs when playing videos.
  • The video has glitchy movement, it is grainy, it is pixelated, it is frozen.
  • Videos that flicker.
  • Interruptions in video playback, or the playback is choppy or jerky.

File videos can be corrupted for different reasons. For example.

  • An unexpected camera shutdown has occurred.
  • Internet connection that is unstable.
  • Your computer was improperly shut down.
  • Media downloads or transfers that are interrupted or incomplete.
  • An error occurred while writing or reading the data
  • Attacks by viruses.

In this situation, you may need a tool to repair your video file; otherwise, you will not be able to view it. Your best choice may vary when it comes to resolving all your video format problems. It is possible to try online tools or install free software. Two methods are presented in this guide for recovering your video file.
