Strangeness (unrecognized) on one GoPro MP4 set of clips
on Aug 21, 2014 at 9:03:01 pm

Hi All,

We shot with 9 GoPros. All of the footage came through well, when transferred to FCPX, except on one GoPro. On that one, half the MP4 files came in fine, and half are not recognized by FCPX, or MediaInfo or VideoSPec. Any ideas what might have happened to them? How to debug the five bad clips?

Thanks!
Michael

So you've got 10 files from the card, 5 are valid video files and the other 5 aren't… hmmmm…

Do all 10 files have the same file extension?

Are they all still on the card?

Do they have similar file sizes?

Hi Doug,

There are 4 valid ones, and five invalid ones so 9 total. The ones with the Quictime icon are the invalid ones:


Thanks!

Do they open in the QuickTime Player?

Noah, no they won't open in QT either!

Then I'd go back to the original card and re-ingest... could be a bad card.

Have you the GoPro software?

Another thing you may check is to copy the card and rename the .lrv files to mp4.
This way you can get a preview and check whether these are spanned clips.

Thanks Andreas. I didn't have the GoPro suite, so it is now installed on the system! BTW it also couldn't deal with the broken clips.

The software that worked (out of quite a few video repair packages just tried) was gs, AKA Grau Online.
It was able to "repair" and make usable all but one of the clips in entirety.

Thanks!
Michael
