Android video camera crashes - videos corrupted?

    Hi All

    Wondering if anyone has any experience and help with this one please.

    Previously running Sensation XE unbranded, Gingerbread 2.3.4

    I used the stock video camera to capture some 720p videos, no problem.

    Then last month, I went zorbing with the missus. Obviously I recorded the whole experience, or tried to.

    On the first run the video camera froze when I tried to stop the recording, previously it looked like the camera was skipping to some extent. I hit the home button after the camera had been frozen on a frame with no activity for a minute or two and found I couldn't watch the video, I had a blank tile in the gallery that couldn't be played.

    We had a second run and I tried again to the same result.


    I've done some reading online and it appears that if the video is a long one (these files are 46Mb and ~90Mb each - other videos on the phone are significantly smaller) then the camera crashes due to the size. The corruption is caused by a failure to correctly index the files and build a trailer record (as I understand) however there doesn't seem to be any real advice as to how to resolve this, save for sending the file to some sweat shop in China for a fee. I've tried some of the software, the previews don't work so obviously I'm hesitatnt to pay for the full featured versions.

    Has anyone had this themselves and more importantly, found a way around it? It's driving me nuts!:mad::thinking:

    The only thing i can say is my video camera use to crash since the update.

    Everytime i pressed record it made the record noise then quit back to homepage.

    I spoke to HTC and they told me to do the battery pull.

    Battery Pull: Pull battery out while phone is on, leave it out for 20-30 seconds then reinsert and reload phone.

    That fixed mine

    Thanks but this was prior to the update - on Gingerbread 2.3.4

    Its not a case of it would always crash, only for long videos. The post is more to try and see if there is a way to recover the files as no codec packs recognise them on the PC.
