Is there a way to save corrupted .mov files? Answered

I was recording my computer screen (on Mac) using Screenium, and my computer ran out of battery, so it went into standby. Now, the video says "This movie file contains errors". The file size still looks about right though. Is there a way I can save at least a large portion of the video? I don't mind cutting off the end if I have to.

I would try running it through VLC or MPEG Streamclip. I know Cleaner can often do what you're asking, but it is also not a free download like the other two. Just try to open it, you may get some error messages. If it shows up at all, just try to export it from there.
