How do you fix a corrupted video on Android?

Answered by Randy McIntyre

To fix a corrupted video on Android, you can use the MP4Fix video repair app. Here is a step-by-step guide:

Step 1: Download and Install MP4Fix Video Repair App
Go to the Google Play Store on your Android phone and search for “MP4Fix video repair.” Download and install the app on your device.

Step 2: Select the Corrupted Video
Open the MP4Fix video repair app on your Android phone. You will see a list of videos that are potentially corrupted. Select the video you want to repair by tapping on it.

Step 3: Add a Correct Video
To repair the corrupted video, you need to provide a correct video file that has the same format as the corrupted video. This can be any video file from your phone’s gallery. Tap the “Add video” button in the MP4Fix app and choose a suitable video.

Step 4: Start Repairing the Corrupted Video
Once you have added the correct video, tap the “Start” or “Repair” button in the app to begin the repair process. The app will analyze and merge the corrupted video with the correct video to fix any errors or issues.

Step 5: Export or Preview the Repaired Video
After the repair process is complete, you can preview the fixed video within the MP4Fix app. Play the video to check if it is working properly. If you are satisfied with the repaired video, you can export it to your phone’s gallery by tapping the “Export” or “Save” button.

It is important to note that not all corrupted videos can be repaired successfully. The success of the repair process depends on the extent of the corruption and the availability of a correct video for merging. If the video is severely damaged or there is no suitable replacement video, the repair may not be possible.

Additionally, it is recommended to back up your important videos regularly to prevent data loss. This way, even if a video gets corrupted, you can easily restore it from a backup.
