How to fix corrupt QuickTime MOV file?


MOV files use a proprietary compression algorithm by Apple to save multimedia content. This file format finds its use in a range of professional cameras (including HD, CCTV, point and shot cameras) and supported by various applications used to run multimedia files. However, these files catch corruption easily due to faulty device firmware, interrupted file transfer, virus attacks, and more. As a result, they fail to run in QuickTime and other media players. Stellar Phoenix MOV Repair facilitates quick repair of unplayable, broken, or damaged MOV files by extracting the audio and video frames to create the original video file.

Steps To Fix Corrupted QuickTime Video (MOV) Files:

Run Stellar Phoenix MOV Repair. On the main interface, click 'Repair MOV File'.

On the next screen, click '+' button to add MOV files to be repaired. You can add multiple MOV files according to your requirement. Click 'Preview' below the list of added MOV files for previewing them before performing repair. Click 'Repair' to initiate the repair.

The software scans the selected files to fix corruption. After completion of the process, all the repaired files are listed in the interface for preview. Select a file in the list and click 'Preview' to view its contents. 

Select the files you need to save to your system and click 'Save' button at the bottom.

Once the process is finished, all the selected MOV files will be saved to a user-specified location in your system. 

Stellar Phoenix MOV Repair helps you repair all types of MOV file corruption, including header corruption, movement corruption, duration corruption, video frame corruption, and sound corruption.

First use of MOV File Repair utility very disappointing. I cannot find ANY articles on this program in your support knowledge base.

Is there a maximum file size for the MOV files the program can repair? Please advise.
