Where is my Photo Booth video?

Me and some friends were messing around on Photo Booth and we took a lengthy video (about 10 minutes) to put up on Youtube. We weren't done with the video and everything was still recording when I left for a minute.

When I returned, Photo Booth was closed. My friend has never used a Mac before and he's not sure what he did. He says he was trying to quit out of another program and he might've accidentally quit Photo Booth. Either that, or he pressed the X, thinking it was the minimize button on Windows.

Anyways, where is the part of the video that we actually recorded? Did the entire thing not get saved at all just because we might've quit out of the program near the end of our video?

We had about 10 minutes of comedic gold and we don't think we can recreate it lol

If you open Photo Booth again, is the video listed at the bottom of the Photo Booth window?

Have you taken a look at Macintosh HD / Users / YOU* / Pictures / Photo Booth?

* your Home folder, displayed in Finder's Sidebar with this icon:

I found the file in my Pictures/Photo Booth folder but it wouldn't play, even in VLC.

Not even in QuickTime Player (X and / or 7)?

Open the file with MediaInfo and post a screenshot of that window here (CMD+SHIFT+4 > Spacebar > select window > screenshot saved on Desktop as .png file).

Taking screenshots in Mac OS X.

The number one rule in programming is, 'If your users need instructions, you have failed.'

----------

Your photobooth mov files are located in Macintosh HD/Users/{YOUR USERNAME}/Pictures/Photo Booth Library/Pictures.

Get rid of your Mac as soon as possible. Its a toy.

Usually in photo booth you can drag videos and photos from the app to the desktop...
