Maybe try VLC player. It plays just about anything and it's free.

Very few recovery programs will work with SD GoPro memory chips. This is because the GoPro records data in fragments, and interleaves low and high resolution files. Some recovery programs show valid files sizes etc, but the videos will not work - as you found out. The codec is not the issue.

www.recovergopro.com is specifically and only for GoPro memory cards and has a free demo that will show thumbnails of videos that can be recovered. If you still have the card (or image), give it a try.
