I am facing an unknown error while playing the video on VLC, I think it might be due to some kind of corruption? Does anyone know how to fix or repair damaged video files?

It happens sometimes when we experience unexpected behavior from the video files that refuses to play and show some kind of error message on the screen. This type of behavior indicates that the video file is damaged by some means. As a result, the file gets corrupted and when you play the video it becomes unable to play anymore and displays the error pop-up instead.
