    Facing an error “Repair the video” in VLC on Windows 7 Professional

    I have some video files in Windows 7 Professional System. I opened and played them in VLC Player. It raised an error is “Repair the video”. It is with every video I play. I uninstalled and reinstalled the VLC Player. Problem is not solved even doing that. What might be the problem? Please, help me!

    First check that the videos are not corrupt... check them in any other media player like GOM media player or winamp media player.. if the problem persist then may be it is due to the virus issue or the video files index got corrupted... VLC media player repairs the files by itself whose index are corrupt or missing.
    also make sure that you are using the latest version of VLC..

    Hi.....

    I think it's not a VLC player or windows problem. your video file may corrupt ,please play other video to fix the error if it play properly that's mean your previous file is corrupt that's why he just required for Repair.

    you can use other video player like- GOM media player , Media player , Real player etc


    All the best

    HI, my dear friend.............this is the error about the index corrupted

    when the VLC displays the error like repair the video means the videos index gets corrupted while downloading from the internet or copying from the other sources

    and to overcome this error simply click the repair video.......and wait until the completion of process

    after the completion of process .............which is automatically played by the VLC

    and some times ...... when the corruption of VLC causes also the error occures


    THANK YOU.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi,

    This message is displayed if the object file, here the video file is corrupt.

    You can repair the files using third party software but that is too cumbersome and time consuming.

    Insted a better idea is to get a fresh copy of the video file. Also verify the saved format of the file and the editing software, as not all saved formats are supported by all media players. You may install additional codec`s to run the unknown format files in media player.

    thanks.

    Dear friend,

    There is no problem with the VLC media player.
    It is the problem with your videos. During copying or downloading a video, the video doesn’t get assembled
    properly due to which its index is corrupted. To correct the index, the VLC media player repairs the video file to play
    it smoothly. It can take time before playing the video. The media player repairs it every time you play the video.


    To avoid this situation, you can change the format of the video by using a standard video converter such as from FLV to
    MP4. FLV file are most susceptible for this corruption.

    You can use Total Video Converter or any another software.

    Thanks!

    first let me clarify your problem, if you ever get such kind of error then it is definitely video problem. VLC has ability to play broken video files.
    If you try to play those video files with some other players they don't even play those files also.

    All you need to do is download those videos again from the source or wait until VLC fixes or repairs those videos.

    Once they are completely fixed you will never face those problems.
    Happy to assist you
