No Live Preview in Safari 9? Solved!

With every new version of OS X (nowadays on a yearly cycle) Apple moves forward and step by step leaves behind old QuickTime supported formats, relaying on HTML5 video to play such kind of media.

That means that current OS 10.11 version (El Capitan) silently undertakes the Plugin support for some legacy formats.

Fortunately for all of those who still dealing with, i.e. AAC Audio files, there’s a way to get a Live Preview when repairing them using MP4repair.org service.

About today’s outage

MP4repair.org has experienced today (October, 28th) a five hours outage.
We’re sorry for the inconvenience.

Such events are fortunately very rare, since May 2013 we hadn’t faced such a serious problem.
This outage has originated at our hosting vendor and is not specific to MP4repair.org, so the good news is that MP4repair.org has not been compromised. It has just been offline for a few hours.

Now everything is working again. Business as usual.

How to create a Virtual Mac OS installation to repair damaged video files on your PC

Despite MP4repair.org service is able to diagnose and repair almost any damaged video file, there are some times that an offline service would be a more comfortable option.
Especially when dealing with huge amount of damaged files, or when needing to repair large files recorded with heavy encoding formats, Aero Quartet‘s Treasured repair service would be the best choice.

For those who have some files to be repaired and unfortunately have no access to a Mac computer there’s a way to achieve same results on your PC. Virtualization is the key to the success!

New Player in Sport Cameras

Seems that those who love recording their sport adventures in full detail are really lucky.
Geonaute has just announced the launch of its new 360º high resolution action sports video camera.

With a full horizontal range of 360 degrees and a vertical range of 150 degrees there’s little you will miss from the scene for sure.

No need to worry about focus or point the camera to the action. Everything will be automatically recorded. Later at editing time, you will be able to select the desired point of view. Ever wanted to know what was happening on your back when skiing down the hill?
Now you can with this camera!

It is a specially designed camera for extreme sports, waterproof (for surface activity, although it also has a special case for sports like scuba diving) and shock. It is quite lightweight (270 grams) and, although it has its own range of accessories also all the well-known GoPro ones can be used.

But as you can imagine, shit happens, and a hard landing or empty battery will leave you with a corrupt video. So whenever you need us, we’ll be ready to help you dealing with that cool footage lost.

First Google Glass Video Repair

Good news!
We received first customer with damaged footage taken with the new gadget from Google.

Yes, you’re right, Google Glass can also have a bad day. Technically nothing different from a regular H264 Video repair with some AAC Audio but with some special settings encoded all along the Audio/Video streams. Shhhh … maybe NSA has something to say about it? (sorry just kidding).

So, whenever Mountain View’s guys release their new toy, we’ll be ready to fix the damaged clips from it.
