Default Image Recovring Issue (?)

I apologize before hand if this is the wrong forum section. I went through all of the other categories and nothing seemed to really fit.

:Canon T1i EOS rebel with a 16GB Transcend SDHC card:
: OS- Windows 7 64x

I recently recorded a video on my camera and accidentally deleted it. I used Recuvia to recover the lost video but the video (.mov file) will not play in Quick time nor any other video playing programs I have. I tried uploading it to youtube to see if it would just fix itself, but I was wrong.



I'm unsure if it is a codex problem or if it is corrupted entirely; however, the 2 other videos I recovered were functioning perfectly while this one and one other in particular aren't working at all.

I've searched endless websites and already answered questions but none of them seem to resolve my problem.

Thank you for reading!

If you can play other videos from the same camera, it isn't a codec issue. Very likely, some data was lost before or during the recovery process. A bit or two in the wrong place will do it. If you think it worth additional effort, you might try downloading Media Player Classic - it can sometimes play things that Windows Media Player can't.

I've tried it on MPC and still no dice. I wonder.. can you fix damaged videos at all?

Thank you for your answer though.

Try VLC media player. They say if it won't play in that it won't play in anything.
