    Is the file corrupted or did you just forget to turn off recording before shutting down your Phantom?

    I assume its a Vision Plus.
    Stick the card back in the phantom and power her on and let her finalise the video.
    You can also try connect via wifi, play the video and then download the video back to the phone/smart device.

    Once in every 30 or 40 videos I forget to stop the video before turning off the battery. If you realize soon enough, just power up the battery again, then wait a minute, then power down again. You may lose the last few seconds, but I've only completely lost the video once.

    Since this is in the general forum, I'll point out that this also works on the gopro as well.
