What is 3GPP file?

A .3GPP file is a multimedia file that is associated with 3rd Generation Partnership Project. The 3GPP file format is based on the MPEG-4 standard, and as the 3GPP file occupies less disk space, saves bandwidth and data usage, the file is used to transfer the multimedia file between the 3G mobile devices. The file is transferred between the mobile devices using the Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) and the Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Services (MBMS). The 3GPP file that is transferred to the mobile device can be opened on the device without using any special application. Also the file can be opened on a PC using QuickTime media player, VLC media player, the file opening program called the Open Freely program.   

Conversion of a 3GPP file

When you install one of the applications from the list of programs that you found here, you should be able to open or edit the file with the 3GPP extension without any issue. However, if you still have problems with this, you may use the option of 3GPP file conversion to a different format.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the 3GPP file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the 3GPP file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the 3GPP file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the 3GPP file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the 3GPP file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the 3GPP file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
