Convert 3GA to MP4 online, for free.
The 3rd Generation Audio (3GA) file format is the audio stream portion of a 3GPP multimedia container, and it is designed for 3G Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) mobile networks. Because 3GA files are heavily compressed and focused on narrowband signals, they are not suitable for music files.
By default, 3GA files open in VLC media player and QuickTime for Mac. 3GA files also open in the voice recorder applications of most mobile phones. Because it is common to use 3GA files for MMS messaging, most 3G mobile devices can open them.
Other programs that can open 3GA files include, Media Player Classic, RealPlayer, and MPlayer. If opening a 3GA file is problematic, then rename the file to include the extension “3GP” and try to open it again.

MPEG-4 (MP4) is a container video format that can store multimedia data, usually audio and video. It is compatible with a wide range of devices and operating systems, using a codec to compress file size, resulting in a file that is easy to manage and store. It is also a popular video format for streaming over the Internet, such as on YouTube. Many consider MP4 to be one of the best video formats available today.
MP4 files open in the operating system's default video player. Simply double-clicking the file opens it. There is no need for third-party software. On Windows, it opens in Windows Media Player. On Mac, it opens in QuickTime.
On some devices, particularly mobile, opening this file type can be problematic. MP4 is a container that contains various kinds of data, so when there is a problem opening the file, it usually means that data in the container (an audio or video codec) is not compatible with the device’s OS. To resolve this issue, try VLC media player.
