Convert 3GP to WMV 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.

Windows Media Video (WMV) is a common and widely supported video format. It compresses the file size with a codec resulting in an easy-to-manage file that maintains the quality of the video. A digital container format, called Advanced Systems Format (ASF), often encapsulates WMV files.
Most media players can open and read WMV (and ASF) files. The best player for opening a WMV file is Microsoft Windows Media Player. Microsoft developed WMV and ASF, and many videos online today are WMV files. VLC media player is another reliable option, which can play multimedia files across several platforms.
WMV is also easy to convert to other video file types. However, keep in mind that the conversion process might cause picture quality to decrease. If a conversion is needed, then HandBrake is a free and open-source tool for converting WMV files.
