Go pro videos use h264 encoding in mp4 files.
Before carving you could try with ffplay to see if there are any videos.
ffplay -f h264 image.dd
(Yes you can give any file as input.)
Try carving for h264 encoded files if successful. It is a challange though. Maybe you can try go pro recovery software if it's just recovery.

a little more luck with photo rec, but not enough luck... any other suggestions?

Try DMDE, there is a Linux version and you can try as suggested the almost fully functional Free version to see if it can find something *more* than photorec:
dmde.com/
dmde.com/buy.html
I am not at all familiar with the console Linux version, (and you will need some time to get the hang of it) the Windows GUI one is a good program, it may (or it may not) recover *something more* than photorec though usually if photorec cannot find what is needed it means that either it is not there or it is there in a form that needs manual recovery.

GoPro files are fragmented. Standard recovery programs will not work with GoPro SD cards

Use www.recovergopro.com

It has been written to just read deleted, formatted GoPro SD memory cards

You can try scalpel, similar to Foremost. Available most distros.

So I tried goprorecovery and foremost. I retrieved the same from both. Foremost required a little more work, but I needed to be sure. Unfortunately, it looks like the video I am looking for stopped recording within 2 seconds of start. I need to confirm that the person who recorded it actually played more than 2 seconds back of the recording. If they say yes there should be more time to the recording, what are some steps I can take? Are there any? Or should I consider the recording lost?

Different GoPro cameras record slightly differently. The big issue that most GoPro modes record high and low resolution video streams interleaved. When the chip is deleted, or formatted, the fragmentation information is lost. Recovery programs that expect sequential data, fail.

Do you know which model camera was being used, and where there high and low res videos.

If high and low videos, are they both just 2 seconds long?

GoPro Recovery scans the whole memory chip for fragments and then reconstructs them, normally using the existing 'moov' data. With the optional Forensic option, unfinalised fragments can also be recovered. This can be extremely useful if the camera was used in an accident when recording may have stopped instantly.

If you received the 2 seconds in standard mode, this implies that the recording was only 2 seconds long.

Please contact me directly if you require anymore assistance.
