Find Corrupt Video Files

3 posts in this topic

Okay this isn't 100% AutoIT related but I was hoping someone would have an idea. I have a folder structure with various video formats  FLV,  AVI,  MPG, MKV,  MP4 etc....

I had a RAID array die on my and I recovered most data but I'd say maybe 15 or 20 percent of the files scattered through the folder structure either won't open. I'm trying to find a tool I can use as is or a tool I can automate with AU3 to identify those files.

Any ideas?

 

Thanks guys,

Kenny

This thread is interesting:

I tried the ffmpeg approach (as I had ffmpeg installed anyway) and it works like a charm.

Of course you could write any AutoIt automation you want around that, but I don't see any added value, especially if your windows cmd and/or powershell fu is adequate :)
