Corruption in MOV files
Videos are the most consumed type of content in today’s world. With more and more people viewing and creating videos, there is also a subsequent increase in these users encountering issues while using them. Issues faced are nothing but a result of corruption in these video files. You may see symptoms such as blurry or pixelated videos, audio missing, video missing or unsynchronized playback.
In this section, our focus is on MOV video files that are a format used in Apple’s QuickTime Player. Although it was initially supported only by Apple, it is now compatible with Windows as well.
Now that we’ve understood the symptoms of corruption, let us look into the most common reasons of corruption in MOV files.
Round tripping: Converting a video from one format to another can disturb the structure of the file and result in corruption issues.
Interruptions during transfer: We normally transfer files to and from a storage device for accessibility or storage purposes. But if the transfer is interrupted due to a power loss or by ejecting the device, files will be partially written and can result in corruption issues.
Incompatibility: Forcibly trying to play a video using an incompatible player can change the structure of the video file and result in corruption.
As a result of using data recovery tools: Sometimes, you may have used data recovery tools to recover deleted or lost files. In such cases, you may end up in a corrupted or damaged video if the recovery is not thorough or if you use unreliable recovery tools.
Besides these reasons, there are other common reasons such as virus attacks or bad sectors in the area where these files are stored that result in corruption issues.
