JPEG to MPEG Conversion?

When my hard drive crashed, I paid a service to recover the files. Several MPEG's are now JPEG. Anybody know how to convert back to MPEG?

How big is one of those files?

I wonder if you lost the player for said file. Tell me the file size and filename plus extension so I can guess if VLCPLAYER could help.

If it is Windows,

change the file extension in Windows Explorer.

Thanks - I already tried that. Media player said it could not open the file.

Do you remember which player open these video files?

If media player worked before but not now; then some codec are missing on the player.

Did Windows warn you when you changed the extension?

If it didn't, then you didn't change it. You could have something like:


If you were warned, and changed it anyway, then the file was probably not fully recovered. It's not bad to proceed with the change, but, even with the corrected extension, the file may be trashed or incomplete.
