No video recording

the last two flights, the video camera showed that it was recording, but there was only a corrupted file that no software was able to read. I tried a second sd card, same result. This is strange because I took a video a week ago. Is there anything I can adjust or control?
Another factoid - the camera did take two perfectly good jpg images at that time.

Sounds like the drone shut down before completely writing the videos -- like you shut off the battery without turning off the video record button first. Try putting the card back in, and turning on the Phantom to let it close out the video. Should be playable then.

Just learned a new and valuable lesson. Shut off video recording before shutting down the AC. Thanks

My problem is usually the opposite. I get so engrossed with setting up my shot and visualizing my flight path that I take off, fly it, and then realize I haven't pressed the video record button. Then I explain to anyone watching that it was only a practice run.
