Question about Macally IceCam Personal Web Camera

Video Files not Recognized

I have a Macbook Pro.   I recently recorded a bunch of videos with my icecam and reviewed them all, minutes after creating them.  The next day I noticed all of these videos don't work.  I click on them and the pop-up says "The movie could not be opened.  The file is not a movie file."
Two things worth noting:  One, the clips definitely did play yesterday when I created them.  Two, I noticed instead of a picture, all the icons have the standard Quicktime icon.
I played with the video effects a lot that day to adjust for the brightness, maybe that had something to do with it?
Either way, I've successfully recorded movies since then.  Any ideas?  How can I retrieve those movie files?

Problem with macally icecam

1. You can open only one video application at a time, therefore, you need to quit ALL the application first, then open the one application you want to use. such as YIM or Skype.

2. Please open the iceCam Monitor, go to Monitor tab, check the "Record Video" and select "Record Until MouseClick".
A new Save window will pop up, set up the filename and location and click SAVE button.
Once you click the mouse button, it will save the recorded video as QuickTime Movie clip format file on the selected location.
If you want a picture, you could run the video and pause it and make a screen shot to grab the picture from the video.
