    I recorded a video back in december at a concert with my iPhone 4s. The video was about 8 minutes long and the battery died while recording. When I got home to charge my battery the video did not save. Well today I installed the updated OS and noticed a new video was in my library. It was the 8 minute video from the concert! I was excited so I watched it, most of it. I paused it to return to it later, but when I was ready to finish watching it, it was gone!

    Anyone know what happened and how I can get this video back??
    Thanks in advance...

    If you figure it out w/out jail breaking I'd be curious as well:

    I went through the opposite issue, wanted to delete some large videos that also disappeared when the battery was dying..died and had to go through a bit to get rid of them. Sounds like the files are not written out/saved correctly (or maybe not indexed properly) when the battery dies in the middle of recording a video and then the file just sits out there on the filesystem..?
