Yesterday, I was attending the UEFA Europa League Final and I was filming the starting ceremony.
I didn't know that I had a merely 1.6 GB left on my SD card. When the memory was full, the camera app did the unthinkable (FC). I entered a file manager and saw that the video is there under the name temp_video but without any extension.

Can you please tell me how can I recover it?

I am aware of that. But can't it be salvaged in some way?

Nope, that doesn't do the trick cause, you know, the file is not finalized one way or the other by the phone itself.I guess I should edit the file somehow on the PC.

I haven't managed to open or recover them somehow. I guess there are no viable solutions for this issue.

Sorry.

PS: Still, keep the files. Who knows, maybe we will find out someday.

Various free video conversion software should do the trick. I've had success using the conversion feature of VideoLAN's VLC media player to 'convert' to .mp4; the video is full size, with sound, and at the original quality. The VLC media player could even play the temp_video file as-is, without any conversion...the conversion was only necessary to play with other players/to burn to DVD.

Hope this helps.

Wink Found a utility that does the trick
I had the same problem. Some people claimed vlc would work, but it didn't. So I tried out this tool: http://grauonline.de/cmsimple2_6/en/...Repair_Utility

It worked when I gave it a reference video (video shot from the same phone), but it only saves half the video unless you buy the license. After watching the video, I determined that I don't need the second half for the price they ask (29 euros), but at least I got half. If the author would only charge say $5 per video I'd probably buy it. In lieu of that, I simply joined the file together to create one file twice as long and re-ran it. In windows "copy /b file + file combined_file". This worked as a stop-gap, but the sound got really off at the midpoint. So, if you really want it to work right, I'd suggest paying for the license.

Credit to this person for pointing me to the tool.

You can try to repair it with the vid repair tool on android playstore it did the trick for me. I recovered full video. It was there with the name temp_video now i can play it well. Hope this works.
