That's not going to play for more than a split second. Since they ran out of space the file never was written so it never existed!

Some buffer and what's in ram doesn't get written out so that buffer has no where to go. It's a common mistake, some have to learn that you must keep space free.

I know, but original file is 2,4GB large. That means that there are some indexes missing required for playing.

So you still have the original file? Then just start over after making enough space.

If this is a question on transcoding the glaring issue in the top post is the lack of space.
You didn't write you corrected that or there was enough space.
Online conversion would not be your space but theirs!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
