    Was just wondering about a corrupt file that I have on my phone. I took a video a few days ago which is 55min long and 4gb. I used a 3rd party app called cameraMX. The video saved to DCIM. But when I go to play it it is only twelve minutes long and can not play the full vid. Also, when I try to edit the video, it says the format is not supported. Is there any way to get the full 55min vid ? Thank you all for your help

    Have you tried opening the video file using a different video player?
    VLC is a great one

    Yes, I tried vlc, and it still plays a 12min video.

    Sounds like it's either corrupted, or there's something weird with the encoding that the app did. Try playing or editing it on a PC or Mac?

    I don't know this "cameraMX" of course. One thought with 4GB video size, was the video stored in internal storage, or to a FAT32 formatted Micro-SD. Because the latter can't store files larger than 4GB, and maybe the video got truncated as a result?

    Wow, thanks for the quick answer. No the video is stored on internal storage. And yes I have tried playing it on QuickTime on Mac. I have also tried MP4fix. What’s weird is the camera didn’t shut off before the end of the video, I pressed stop recording and everything was normal then.
