Game/App Problem: Legions: Overdrive (note that I've successfully recorded footage of Legions using Action before, but it was back in 2014 on a different computer)
Error Type: Corrupt Video
Description: I'll record bits of footage, generally about 30 seconds or less. The resulting footage plays perfectly in Action!, but the mp4 files themselves are corrupt. I tried playing them on this computer using VLC, and on my mac, with no luck. I also tried opening them in MPEG Streamclip, but it failed to recognize them as legit video files. In VLC it looks like this:
It gets stuck on that first frame while the audio plays perfectly in the background.
Since the footage plays just fine in Action, I get the sense that if I could only export/convert the MP4s from there, I could have working files. But I can't export MP4s, and if I can avoid it I don't want to record AVIs because I only have 50GB hard drive space dedicated to video footage.
Side note: of the 17 bits of footage I recorded, the first one isn't corrupt for whatever reason, despite being recorded about 5 minutes before a corrupt one and having the same specs. I'll try and figure out what's so special about that one.
