Double apologies for TouchArcade Patreon backers this week, as a SNAFU with my dumb computer instantly rebooting when I told it not to install Windows Updates (Thanks, Windows 11) resulted in a corrupted MP4 file for the first 3/4 or so of our video podcast. If you're a bad enough dude to attempt to recover the file, you can download it from my Dropbox here and then hit me up on Twitter. You will become the podcast king if you can save the video podcast kingdom. I can provide more details, but tl;dr basically amounts to the MP4 recording got cut off and so it didn't write the moov atom at the end, resulting in 1.4GB unplayable file. Fun stuff. Anyway, if you don't care about the video side of things, this is a pretty great episode this week. We kick things off talking about DotEmu's fabulous Wonder Boy port on the Nintendo Switch (which we really hope comes to mobile, like most/all other DotEmu stuff), then we kick into discussing some games. Those games include: Trailer Park Boys: Greasy Money [Free], Office Space: Idle Profits [Free], CATS: Crash Arena Turbo [Free], Nonstop Chuck Norris [Free], Vignettes [$2.99], Get Me Outta Here [Free] and Invert [$2.99]. It's a good time, I swear.

    Well, I gave it a download and put it through all the software that I have access to here at my home editing setup. Nothing worked. Adobe's CC Suite, MPEG Streamclip, VLC, Compressor, Media Encoder, Quicktime, changing the file extension, Final Cut Pro, etc. There are video recovery apps out there, but I don't know how much I trust installing, giving them permissions, and buying licenses. Personally, I had my MacBook Pro's battery die while it did a auto update to the latest OS X, and when it came back on after charging and finishing installing, my hard drive was wiped. I don't blame Apple. I blame my choice of a SSD instead of an optical HD. Oh well. Sorry I couldn't get it working for ya!

    Do you have another working video from the same source? I've got a utility to try but it uses a known-good video as a reference to try repairs.

    I want to ask something about buying games trough an TouchArcade link in the AppStore did you guys get an percentage of this because when I looking for new games I go most of the time direct to TA be cause a lot of gamers post their reactions so it is easier to filter out the games that I like and don't and that it is only fair that Apple paid for this.
