Default Help! Seemingly broken videos!

Hi guys,

I am desperate for help! Some videos I took on my honeymoon seem to have been corrupted, I suspect they were due to using Aperture but I dont think thats relevant to solving the issue.

They were filmed on a Samsung camera, and for the life of me I cant remember what the original extension of the files were before they were imported into Aperture and worked. But now they have a .AVI extension. The files refused to play in Quicktime, MPlayer X and VLC. VLC does give the correct duration but wont play.

Media information says:

"Stream 0

Type: Video
Codec: Motion JPEG Video (dmb1)
Resolution: 1280x720
Display Resolution: 1280x720
Frame rate: 30

Stream 1

Type: Audio
Codec: PCM S16 LE (sowt)
Language: English
Channels: 1
Sample Rate: 22050 Hz
Bits per sample: 16
Bitrate: 352 kb/s"

The files ran through DivFix++ also give me the error that the files are not really .AVI.

What can I do to get these back?

MJPEG usually comes in AVI or MOV containers, so if AVI is not being recognized, perhaps try renaming the extension to MOV?
