Sadly, every time I tried to play them on VLC or Windows Media Player, I got a gray or green display on the screen instead. I realized that my videos were corrupt and thought of digging up and finding an ideal solution for it. To be honest, after some failed attempts, I was finally able to repair my corrupted videos. If you have also encountered a similar situation in the past, then you may learn something from my experience.
Read on to find out how.
Before we head into the details on how to repair corrupted videos, it is important to discuss a few things in advance. You should know the major reasons why a video gets corrupt or damaged so that you can avoid it in the future.

If your videos have been corrupted, then you need to look for the right tools to fix them.
Since there are so many tools out there to repair corrupted videos, I asked a friend of mine, who is an expert in the field. He recommended Recoverit Video Repair, so I decided to give it a try as well.
Ideally, Recoverit is a dedicated application to recover the lost or corrupt data of all kinds. However, it also has a dedicated video repairing tool that can fix various issues related to a video file.
After getting to know these features, I wanted to give Recoverit a try and found its click-through process pretty easy.
Once you have installed the Recoverit Video Repair application, you can follow these steps to fix your corrupt files.
If you have some videos to fix, then just launch the Recoverit application on your system and launch the “Video Repair” tool from its home page. Also, attach your digital camera to the computer and move your damaged videos to the system.
Once you launch the Recoverit Video Repair application, you can just click on the “add” button to load the corrupted videos.
This will further launch a browser window, letting you locate and load the videos that are damaged. If you want, you can load multiple videos and repair them at the same time.
After you have added the corrupted videos to the application, the interface will let you know. You can view the details of the added videos and even remove them from here.
If you are ready, then just click on the “Repair” button to commence the repairing process.
As soon as you click on the “Repair” button, the application starts fixing the loaded videos and displays the progress. Kindly be patient as of now and let the application complete the process.
Once the repairing process is completed, Recoverit will let you know by displaying the following prompt.
You can now preview the results of the repaired process by clicking on the play icon adjacent to the video.
This opens a pop-up window with a video player that will let you play the repaired video. In this way, you can check the results of the application before saving the videos.
If you are satisfied with the results, then click on the “Save to Folder” button right next to the video.
If you want, you can also click on the “Save All” button to save all the videos. This opens a browser window, letting you select a secure location to save the videos.
In the case that you are not satisfied with the standard video repairing results, then click on the Advanced Video Repair feature, which you can find at the bottom of the video player.
To run an advanced repair, you need to load a sample video to the application. The sample video should be shot on the same device as the corrupted video and must be in the same format.
After loading the sample video, you can start the advanced video repair process and view its results as well.
When using Recoverit, it’s easy to repair corrupted videos. Recoverit is able to fix all sorts of issues related to videos like missing fragments, gray/green screens, video not loading error, and so on and supports a wide range of video formats like MOV, AVI, FLV, 3GP, MP4, MKV, MTS, and more.
