    Hello...
    I have a long .AVI file that is critical in a court case, but has been
    corrupted in some fashion. We tried several NLE programs hoping one of them
    could open up the file, but have been informed repeatedly that the file is
    corrupt.

    My question is: can corrupt files be rejuvenated by some program that
    understands the code structure of AVI's ?
    Or, is there a player that is so tolerant of ECC problems
    that it plays the file ad hoc so we could view at least part of the file
    contents ?

    Any help or ideas are appreciated........... Les

    Search for kazaa-lite - somewhere on their website is a program that allows
    you to view partially downloaded avi's - and another that rewrites the
    headers of corrupted files
