How to view an incomplete .mov file?

How to view an incomplete .mov file?

I was in the middle of receiving a .mov through Yahoo Messenger when the other person's connection dropped and now I am unable to view what I have received.  I got about half of the file but I cannot view any of it as I just get the standard error "it is not a file that QuickTime understands."

So far I've tried opening it with QuickTime (obviously), RealPlayer 10, Windows Media Player 10, and Windows Media Player Classic.  I also tried opening it in Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5 to see if maybe I could view it there...no good.  I also downloaded a program called "QuickTime Alternative," which looks to be a WMP Classic plug-in, and, of course, it does not play it either.

I know there has to be a way to do it, I just don't know which direction to head with it.  Please share any knowledge you have on this.  Thanks in advance.
