“Hi all, please help me out to solve the problem which I am facing now. I just used iMovie application to edit a QuickTime movie on my Mac machine. My intention was only to add some effects on that movie. But, it’s rendering didn’t complete even after 2 hours. I tried to cancel the rendering. But the application itself stopped working. I just don’t remember how I quitted the software. I tried to play the file which I was edited on VLC media player on the same system. But, what I got was an error message saying like the following.
“The format of file cannot be detected. Have a look at the log for more details”
I'm guessing that the QuickTime movie has become corrupted. I want to repair it. At the same time, I don’t interested to worsen the condition of that file. Can anybody tell me how to fix corrupt QuickTime movie file on Mac machine? I am using iMac core i5 machine with Mac OS X 10.7.5”
