My first post. I somehow ended up with an 750 MB mp4 file I shot on my new Mini that I can't view with any app I know of. Quicktime tries unsuccessfully to convert the file and says it can't open it. Any idea what I may have done to cause this? Thanks.

I had this happen, it was because I turned off the drone before I had stopped a recording.

All I had to do was put the SD card back in the drone and power it on, and it fixed the file automatically.

All cameras have some lag when finishing off a video, not just drones. Never shut the drone down, or pull the sad card out before the camera buffer has been completely written, and the file closed. It shouldn’t take more than 15 sec or so. Your mileage may vary.
