Video corrupted

I was capturing my video using Vmix Live Video Streaming & Video Mixer Software when suddenly my computer restart itself. The file was saved with size of 3GB in my local drive. I used AVI format.

But when I try to open the video file, it looks like the file is corrupted and couldn't be opened. What can I do to fix this??

Any help would be very appreciated, thanks.

UPDATE: This is the screenshot when I open the file in VirtualDub Hex editor Using Hex Editor

UPDATE: This is the screenshot again where the zeros end. Zeros end

UPDATE: This is the screenshot of a working file. Screenshot of a working file

  1. Don't panic

  2. Download virtualdub and try to open in it. Try select "direct stream copy" and save new file. AVI container very easy to fix.

  3. If you using h264 codec inside, you can try to use my tool https://github.com/bookkojot/mp4fixer

  • Ok, I've posted it in my question. I can't screenshot all of them though, I think it have million lines of hexadecimals. Nov 20, 2017 at 0:10
  • Ok, things goes worse than expected. Try to scroll down, you see anything other, than zeros?
