See more: Video binary
I have a binary file containing 0s and 1s. It is 1.8 gb in size. I suspect it is a video file. I don't know how it got stored as 0s and 1s. How can I try some ways of finding out if it is a video file? currently it has extension of txt. It is in a linux directory. Can changing extension help?

If it is actually a video file then, yes, the 'change-extension' trick could work.
