How to tell if your downloaded file is completely functional
on Jan 14, 2020 at 11:49:27 pm

Hello,

I was wondering, whether there is a way that you can say for sure, that the file, that you have downloaded via WeTransfer (or any other platform), truly preserved all the information? Is it enough if you can play the file with numerous video players without any error messages? Could the file get (just slightly) corrupted, even if you can do that? What could the corruption cause?

I was just wondering that, since I often receive graded footage back via the internet. Should you always receive the files by physically copying it, or are the internet transfers a safe way to receive video files for an archive?

Best regards,

Juan
