Use VLC Media Player
It has long been the case that most Windows 10 users play any video file using Windows Media Player. Indeed, Windows Media Player has improved a lot in recent years, but it doesn't always deliver what is required of it. If the media files are slightly damaged, not to mention severely damaged video files, then the built-in Windows media player will not be able to start them.
In addition, it will not be able to handle the analysis and correction of related problems.
But nothing, there is a good open-source VLC media player application. There is a whole host of additional features here, as well as an extensive video codec library that allows you to play slightly damaged or even significantly damaged video files. There is no need to fix the arisen video problems; you just continue watching. Thus, VLC can run and play those media files that are not supported by other media players.
To play a slightly damaged MP4 video file, you need to install VLC on your computer and prepare it for use by doing the following:
- Select the damaged MP4 video file and right-click. Next, select the 'Open with link' and select the option - VLC.
- Next, the playback of a previously inaccessible video file will start, so you can quickly and easily commence the MP4 video repair.
Use Video Recovery
Sometimes, users face the problem of losing video files and, at the same time, mistakenly think that video recovery is impossible due to the complex nature of video files and large sizes.
There are also cases when video files get damaged and users delete them. When they later find that these corrupted files can be recreated, they begin to regret their actions as they no longer have video files.
Basically, they lose the .mp4 files. It is possible for various reasons:
- Accidental deletion or damage to video files due to virus attacks.
- Storage error or hardware failure.
- Errors when moving files from one device to another.
