MOV media files run on Quick Time Player that every Mac (as well as PC) owners are aware of. In spite of the high end quality delivered by MOV files, many cases of corruption appears which often halt smooth running of the media files on Quick Time player. With intent of getting some inside information for the same, an IT personnel detailed me the list of specific errors that causes MOV file corruption on Mac OS X. With the help of his support and knowledge, I'm here to list out such errors with bit of an explanation:
So, the error of the MOV files are as follows:
Header corruption of MOV files: The headers of a media file are localed on the first origin of the block of data stored on the hard drive and must be in correct form to perform transfer and access the file. Upon missing the header information, the rest of the components of the files are insufficient to make it run or access. The reason for the missing header file could be either due to overwriting of the file header, bad sectors leading to corruption of the header file or insufficient memory to access the header information. In-spite of the header corruption, some tools promise to repair the damaged header information which in turn re-activates the media file on Quick Time Player. Thus, a MOV file repair tool does bring in some hopes for Quick Time lovers.
Sound corruption: A MOV file suffering from sound problem is a cause of deep agony for the users. Trust me, a MOV file with fine video quality but poor & damaged sound is a pain. The causes leading to the sound corruption of a MOV file could possible be due to lack of sound support files, missing or corrupted sound files causing a mismatch in accordance with the video frames. In such cases, when we conclude that an important sound file is either missing or damaged, the only solution lies in running a MOV file repair tool that can fix up the sound file bugs.
Video frames corruption: What are FRAMES? Basically, they are the pieces of a images which are combined to form a video, and such frames contribute to a large video file. Many times, videos are created using variety of video frames and quality of the video depends upon these frames. Any sort of corruption received while creating and managing frames would advance to disrupted running of the media file which again is a challenging task for a repair software. Some times, due to poor editing of the video, some created frames are quite hard to fix. Other than that, frames disrupted due to external causes like files corruption still possess chances for a repair.
Obviously, the above 3 corruption errors are not the only that a MOV file goes through. There are plenty of other damages responsible for a bad MOV files. But yes, the above discussed are the frequently occurring errors that are under the scope of repair.
