Isn't it easier (and more reliable) to just spend < $10 for a new cable?

Thanks mate could do that if it was easy to remove the cable through the wall, i have to open a bigger hole cause i had it closed with plaster,if i can do it as in the video and it works then i save 10 bucks and more work,if not i will replace it.

You can repair it by soldering on a new connector or using a breakout board .

Hi guys; i have good news , HDMI project success , i was able to connect both ends of the HDMI cable and i just used tape (no solder) just twisted both ends of each wire together,it was easy because i used same type and color HDMI cable, (not sure if all HDMI cable uses same color wire skim), this is first time i cuff off an HDMI cable end ,so keep that in mind,if all HDMI cable are not same color? don't try this unless you have tools to test each end, and it will take forever,thanks to you all that gave tips for other solutions but this was the cheapest and the faster.
