This means that Lightroom Classic does not recognize the format of the video, or the file is corrupted.


What format is the video?

You can't un-corrupt a corrupted file. If the file is still on your camera card, you can try copying it to your copmuter again, put it in a different folder, and see if that changes anything.

Thank you again for answering all my questions. The file is actually a file from imovie, I exported it again and still was not able to import to lightroom, but the video plays on quicktime?
