mp4.tmp from video recording?? **SOLVED!!!** - corrupt MP4 file repair

I'm using Task & Ktoonsez ROM

I recently recorded a series of videos. A few of the files are saved as mp4.tmp which is unreadable by any video player on the phone. I also have not been able to get any program on the phone or computer to open, play, or covert these files.

Each video file is 720p, around 10min long, and ~600mb. Each mp4.tmp file has a .mp4 file counterpart that is 0kb.


I don't think this is a ROM issue, but I think it's the camera software that's supposed to repair/process this file maybe?
Help is greatly appreciated. I would really like to save these files somehow if possible. If they are corrupt, I don't need the audio, just the video.

Thank you,
-Bob

Have you tried renaming the mp4.tmp to .mp4? Your simply changing the file extension but theoretically enabling video players to properly detect what they are.
You can either transfer them to your computer and then change them or even do it on your phone with a simple file viewer from the Market.
Hope that helps!

Yeah I thought that would work too. Alas, I was wrong...

Interesting. Have you tried renaming and then using a video player like vlc? Vlc for the Mac/PC can play just about anything. If that still doesn't work I'm at a loss my friend. I've never been successful with editing a unviewable file before.
One other thing. Have you tried other extensions? For instance .3gp or .avi? I'm not sure what format cm10 natively records, but I'd try that as well before giving up.

Yup, tried every extension I can think of and VLC as well as many other players. Thanks for the effort though. I still hope to solve it. The file size is right so I know there's information in there.
