M00 video file recovery without original MLVs
« on: March 20, 2015, 06:54:15 PM »
Hi all,

Thanks to g3gg0 knowledge and help I was able to recover my M00 files in SD card without the original MLV files.

Background
I converted MLV files and forgot to check the SD card. I also rename the dngs and trash the original MLVs.
As a resulkt I got lots of incomplete and kind of drop frames sequences

Solution
g3gg0 wrote a code line that enabled me to recover these files.
Then I matched the new dngs with the ones I transcoded days before.
As a result I now have complete sequences! Happy days!!

It's all inside this folder "recover_mlv_chunk" in my dropbox

You should have 2 folders "mlv_chunk_fixer" and "Time_advance"

You should put your 2 files inside the mlv_chunk_fixer. A random MLV and the problematic M00

code line (fix_chunk.sh)
./fix_chunk.sh  <good_mlv_file>  <orphaned_chunk_file

"good_mlv file" - doens´t have to be the original .MLV. It can be an image you just shot

"orphaned_chunk_file" - M00 file

Write the code in terminar and your ready to go

Excellent job g3gg0!
