PICTURES, VIDEO AND AUDIO

Pictures

We are able to retrieve images through the use of carving and non-carving. Common supported formats are as follows: JPEG (.jpg, .jpg, .jpe), PNG (.png), Bitmaps (.bmp), Graphics Interchange Format (.gif), Icons (.ico), Tagged Image File Format (.tif, .tiff).  There are many other formats less frequently used that we are able to recover.


Videos

We can retrieve videos through the use of carving and non-carving. Commonly supported videos types include: Windows Media Video (.wmv), MPEG-4 (.mp4), Quicktime (.mov), Audio Video Interleave (.avi), Matroska (.mkv), DivX (.divx), 3GP (.3gp), MPEG (.mpg, .mpeg). Many other formats can also be recovered.


Web Video Recovery

This search recovers two distinct types of web-based video. Fragments of flash video can be left behind by many video streaming sites (like Youtube). RTMP Frame Fragments are frames left behind by streaming sites using the RTMP protocol (widely used by webcam chat sites like Chatroulette, Camstumble,   etc).
The software will show a thumbnail from the recovered video, as well as any relevant metadata. Videos can be exported to .FLV format to be played. Due to the nature of the data recovered, some video players will have issues playing the exported files. We recommend trying ffmpeg, VLC, and the GOM player.
Videos may also be exported to other formats and we can provide video player software to you.
