  • What is that base of that Video File. Stream it simply back in that format to disk in the opposite way as you got the array.

  • If all of the bytes were loaded, then try File.WriteAllBytes specifying a suitable file extension.

  • Hi lgorGalimski,

    By my search, I also just find save byte[] as video like Viorel_'s post, and it could not be opened by some video tool, it shows that "This file isn't playable. That might be because the file type is unsupported, the file extension is incorrect, or the file is corrupt."

    byte[] buffer = new byte[4096];
            private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
                using (Stream video = File.OpenRead(@"D:\Audio File\minions.mp4"))
                    int bytesRead = video.Read(buffer, 0, buffer.Length);                                         
            private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
                File.WriteAllBytes(@"D:\Audio File\Test1.wmv", buffer);

    Best Regards,
