I have some video files which were stored with the format headers in separate files. Unfortunately, the disk crashed, and the header information has been lost. I still have large chunks of stream data though. Before I start writing brute-force code to figure out the parameters, are there any tools available for recovering this sort of thing?
update: Further research and analysis indicates that this is multiple video streams multiplexed into a single file, with codec data hard-coded into the recording software. As such, repair is likely impossible. Software capable of scrounging such a file and extracting likely video frames might have some success, but I do not find any such software available. If anyone knows of any I would be happy to test it out and review it. If this moves the question beyond the scope of this site, feel free to close it.
