I was drone filming last night but sadly the video wont play.
I tried to open the file with DJI GO app but screen is black.
I shoot of total 5 clips and all will play exept the real important file.
I tried a repair software called "djifix" but sadly that wont do either.
The file is 2.8GB......

Anyone can give me advice?

Kind regards, Amund, Norway

Was the one that won't play the last file?
Did you make sure to stop the recording BEFORE you turned the drone off?

I cannot remeber if i stop before change battery. I try to keep this in mind every time i shoot.

This was the first file of total 4 clips dont work.
I was actually getting video to work now with software "Stellar Phoenix Video Repair"
But they charge 80 USD for this software. Which in case is probaly worth it.
Il try find a free software first
Thanks

I had same thing happen a few weeks back. Forgot to stop recording before turning off the drone. I was never able to recover that file even using djifix.

Give a chance to this commandline tool:
Repairing a Corrupt MP4 Video File

For me worked this solution everytime for failed (not properly closed file) recordings in Sony Camcorder (h264, corrupted due to recording when battery died)

It is not available anymore for download from official site, use link to mega in stackowerflow discussion linked above..
