So I recorded a video earlier today on a program called Bandicam which some of you might be familiar with. I came back to my computer this evening and the file is corrupted and won't open. I can only open it with Windows Live Movie Maker but when I do that it's only about 19 seconds and the video is fairly over 10-15 minutes. It is an AVI file. I was wondering if I could some how restore it to how it was before when it did open fine.

Are you saying that the program it was created with...does not open it?

Louis, Bandicam will not open the file. As a video file saved in AVI format, it will be opened by the default program set for opening AVI files. I have AVI files set to open in Windows Media Player and that is what opens when I view something I've recorded with Bandicam.




 Did you view the video right after you recorded it? If so, what program did it open in and were you able to view the entire recording?


What is the default program for opening AVI files?


Did you right click the file name, choose Open With and try a different program to open it? If not, please try that. Report back with the results.


When you opened it what, if any, error message did you get telling you it was corrupted and would not open?


Bonus question: Are you using the free version of Bandicam or the paid version?
