If both ends of torn videotape are outside cassette, most formats can be spliced. If one or both ends of torn videotape is inside cassette, it may be possible to pull out end of videotape from cassette for splicing. It is possible to open some cassettes to reach the videotape. Some formats, however, have cassettes difficult to open and close properly and splicing may not be available.

All spliced videotape should be duplicated or transferred to another format, since playing a videotape with a splice may cause damage to the VCR , camcorder or videotape itself.
