Convert 3GP to MP4 online, for free.
3GPP (3GP) is a multimedia container format designed for third generation (3G) universal mobile telecommunications system (UMTS) networks, which is a global system for mobile (GSM) standard. Since UMTS is a technology for mobile, the 3GP format allows mobile phones on UMTS networks to capture, save, deliver, and play media over high-speed wireless connections.
The best application for opening 3GP is Apple QuickTime. And although 3GP is designed for mobile, the file format opens easily on most operating systems, including Linux, Mac, and Windows.
3GP is a flexible file format that supports captions and subtitles via 3GPP Timed Text. It does not support interactive menus, but it is compatible with free third-party tools that provide such support. One example is AutoGK. To improve the quality of the video while viewing off-mobile, convert the file to MP4.

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.
