Did you restart Plays.tv after restoring the video? It would have to rescan the video folder in order to see it.
no i didn't restart plays tv after restoring it but now i have done that and it is still not there. if i try open the file with a other film program it says that the files i incomplete or damaged
Do you know if it was fine before deleting it? When videos are deleted they should still be able to maintain the ability to playback. The only thing that could be lost is metadata (like what game it is)
Without knowing exactly what happened, it's hard to figure out whether they are recoverable or not. It's not acting the normal method that it should be, as it somehow became corrupted. Unfortunately, I don't know methods to recover corrupted video files.
