this reparing options, does it work like the divfix version of windows?? cuz all that prog did was just strip the index and cut off the chunks that were corrupted which isn't really all that helpful...

Well, yeah, sort of. I don't use the avidemux, but would if it would repair that. With mplayer it rebuilds the index to actually correctly seek the movie from a corrupted download.

What you want is for a program to see your movie, go through it bit by bit, compare what is missing to a database somewhere, plug in the missing info, rebuild the index, and then output to overwrite the file. I highly doubt you'd find something like that

Best bet is to remove the garbage, rebuild the index, and then watch the movie with the small bits missing.
