    What is the video file format ?
    https://codecguide.com/download_k-lite_codec_pack_full.htm
    After installing this and trying to play it in media player classic, or vlc player.
    If the video shows no playback or refuses to open up.
    Trash the file into the recycle bin on your desktop, as it is corrupted from accidental shut down.

    Thats right sometimes that will happen, if mobile phones don't have enough time to save it before shutting down.
    The file will get corrupt or just won't play, been down that road many times so no need to be saddened by it.

    Hi Mate,
    Thats not a problem. Had you shooted another video and checked wheather it is saved or not. Even though if you faced the same problem Go with better recovery tools that may help you to recover your data
