    A problematic mp4 video

    Hi all,
    I have recently downloaded a video by youtube-dl. The video is of size ~450 MB and has ~25mins duration.

    The problem is, it stops after 06:34.

    I downloaded this not in a single time, but resumed by youtube-dl -c. That's the way I usually
    download big files with no problem.

    But while downloading this one, I forgot give the -c once and typed youtube-dl only, quickly realized and pressed ctrl-z and
    then again gave youtube-dl -c. It resumed from where it ended and not from the beginning. I am not sure whether this is really
    the cause of the problem because I don't remember where I made the -c mistake.

    I want to correct this file so that I don't need to download it again.

    Any help?
    Thanks...

    You probably will not get any help with this because as far as I can remember there is a strict policy on these Forums against breaking You-Tube's EULA.

    I cannot find the link to the post that explains in more detail the whys and wherefores.

    Thanks Iowan, have book-marked that for future use and am now ending my interest in this thread.
