    Question How to repair mpg files?

    I have a few files that are mpg format, but do not play. What happens is the video will stop for a given period of time, and then start up again, but later in the video. I tried DivFix++, but this only fixes AVI files. I also tried using VLC to see if it would start up the auto fix box, and repair it, but that does not do anything as well. I have looked for solutions on the Internet, but there is no help out there as well. So I am at a dead end. If I can get some help on it I would be thankful.

    Yup. still the same problem. If there is no fix to this, then I may have to get another laptop (which I planned to do anyway), and see if I can find some program in Windows to fix it because right now I am out of ideas. I would re-download the files, but they are BIG. Unless I become a linux genius during the summer and write a program for things like this. Ugh. The stress.

    There were no error messages in the terminal. I will surrender in saying that I am just going to find something in Windows to handle the problem. Windows is like smoking, you truly never quit.

    Re: How to repair mpg files?

    I have been have similar troubles (although my current solution in training involves .AVI files...).

    I have found running the files through something like AVIDEMUX (and saving as a new file name) has corrected the problems.

    As I mentioned, it is a solution but still in development, so I'm not yet ready to proclaim "WIN!" but so far, so good.

    As with any conversion or other process there is a some concern with loosing data (lossless vs lossy, etc). What I've seen doesn't reduce the file size by any appreciable amount.
