    Corrupt Video... I'm F****D

    So, let's just say i may have a video, a corrupt video. And lets say it might be footage of someones wedding. I'm in trouble.

    Here's the problem, it's m2t, it will play with vlc but when i add it to a project in vegas it comes up green. i have tried there with cucusoft to convert it to remidy the problem but it just freezes and won't convert.

    Any thoughts? Need help badly!!!!

    I guess if VLC is playing it back without problems, it's not corrupt... have you tried any other file converters?

    I did a quick google for "free m2t converter" and came up with this. Might be worth a shot...

    If VLC plays it then it's probably muxed in a way your other program can't understand. VLC supports transcoding/remuxing, or as stated above, other programs can deal with it for you.

    Just take care to preserve the original somewhere safe while you're messing around with copies
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Google eac3to

    It's a freeware audio/video conversion tool and it will let you demux your m2ts file to elementary streams, or mux it to mkv.

    You might also be able to use mpeg2repair to scan the file for errors & log them. Don't EVER use the repair function though as it will totally screw the stream up.

    HDVSplit will examine and extract the file as much as it can. Womble MPEG Video Wizard DVD (excellent program... crap title) is fantastic for looking at .m2t files and doing likewise (and a lot more), but it's not free.

    I did have a corrupt .m2t file that would play in KMPlayer and VLC, but nothing could save those last 10min or so, even though some of the info was clearly there. Best of luck, as I know all too well how frustrating it is.
