MOV Video File Structure

MOV video file is QuickTime File Format, it is a format used by the QuickTime framework, which was developed by Apple Inc. MOV file contains the following atom types.:

ftyp: File type compatibility—identifies the file type and differentiates it from similar file types, such as MPEG-4 files and JPEG-2000 files.

moov: Movie resource metadata about the movie (number and type of tracks, location of sample data, and so on). Describes where the movie data can be found and how to interpret it.

mdat: Movie sample data—media samples such as video frames and groups of audio samples. Usually this data can be interpreted only by using the movie resource.

free: Unused space available in file.

skip: Unused space available in file.

wide: Reserved space—can be overwritten by an extended size field if the following atom exceeds 2^32 bytes, without displacing the contents of the following atom.

pnot: Reference to movie preview data.

Corrupted MOV File

You may get a broken MOV video file in most cases:

  • Something wrong happens during recording video, for example, device cash, accidentally interrupted or power failure.
  • MOV file was not copied completely from memory card.
  • MOV file was recovered by data recovery software after memory card was broken
  • MOV file was recovered by data recovery software after memory card was formatted accidentally or MOV file was deleted accidentally.

Repair Corrupted MOV Video File

The damage file doesn’t not contain all the atoms, so that it cannot be played.

To get a corrupted MOV file played, we need to rebuild all the atoms for the file. We need to identify all tracks in the mdat data, then need to rebuild a moov atom for the all tracks. To repair broken MOV file, a lot of professional work need to be done, we can help you to perfectly repair it.

If you have a damaged/broken/corrupted or unfinalized/unplayable MOV file, all you have to do is to upload it to any cloud storage space, such as Google Drive, Dropbox, Mega, FileMail or others you know, then send us the link to download.

MOV Video File Data Recovery

If you have a broken MOV file recovered from memory card after deleted or formatted, or the card was damaged, that’s because the data recovery software you used doesn’t work for the MOV file due to its complicated file structure.

Note: Please stop using the Memory card to avoid the raw data overwritten.

To get your MOV file back, we need to manually recover it from the memory card in more professional way. We don’t actually need your card, we only need the image file of it. No worry, it is simple to create it. We will guide you step by step.
