ffprobe will report a lot of info about a video file; I find MediaInfo to be 
useful for that, too.

With that, you -may- be able to tell ffmpeg what to expect, and it -may- 
find something. After that, it gets into what's close to wizardry. You'll 
have to ask yourself whether recovering any video is worth the time and 
effort. A good analogy is looking for a needle in a haystack when you don't 
know exactly what the entire needle looks like.

Please don't top-post on this mailing list; if you're not familiar with the 
term, a quick search will turn up lots of info.
