.KLV file after using Photo Recovery Software

I was filming a wedding yesterday when my Sony PXW-Z150 locked up while filming. It's hard to describe exactly what happened but the only way to get started again was to remove the battery as it wouldn't even switch off. Using recovery software I was able to recover the file, which had a .klv extension.

I can't find anything that will open this file. This was quite an important part of the day so I really need to find some way of being able to edit this.

Drag and drop the file directly in to your media player software of choice, such as "Media Player Classic". If it has video content then it will play regardless of what the extension is.

If it plays then change the file extension over to what it should normally be.

Thanks. I tried doing this in VLC media player but it crashes every time.

This may or may not be relevant. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KLV

Can only otherwise recommend contacting tech support at the manufacturer.

Thanks but too techy for me! I had read somewhere that it's basically a case of re-wrapping the .klv file into a .mxf container, but I have no idea how to do that.

If you have access to a Mac try dropping into File Juicer, it's fixed many problems for me. don't know of a PC equivalent sorry.
