What Causes Video Corruption on iPhone
Video files from iPhones can become corrupted by several causes. Taking the time to learn the factors that can damage your video files allows you to stay away from these issues in the future.
MOV files are the default format for videos from iPhones, and it is used across devices from smartphones to cameras. They can suffer damage while you are editing the video file, converting it multiple times, or transferring, for example.
You can also damage your video files by handling them improperly. The header of the file can be damaged when you are editing it, making the video corrupted. You are transferring the video file between devices, and the USB cable is switched off during the process.
During the download of the video, the internet connection is unstable and it breaks the data from files. Or the video is converted several times for different formats until it gets corrupt and becomes unplayable.
Sometimes, problems with your iPhone device are the root of the corruption of your videos. Recording videos with a low battery may increase the chance of damaging them. Uncleaned caches on the application camera you use can lead to broken data. Of course, storing video files on unsafe devices infected by malware is another cause of unplayable videos.
