3GP to VCD: Convert Video from 3GP(3GP Mobile Video) to VCD(VideoCD 2.0) with River Past Video Cleaner, 3GP2VCD converter, conversion

What is 3GP?

The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3G/3GPP) is a collaboration agreement that was established in December 1998. The 3GPP and 3GPP2 specifications call out specific types of media that can exist in .3gp and .3g2 files.

Once you move a video from cell phone to your PC, the easiest way to play it is to use Apple's QuickTime Player.

In general, if a cell phone record a 3g2 video, it should conform to the 3G2 standard. However, a cell phone may not has the ability to play all variety of 3G2 videos due to limited codec support on the cell. Thus, it is easy to convert a cell phone 3G2 to a video format playable on a computer, but it is not so easy to convert a PC video to a 3G2 which is compatible with your particular brand of cell phone.

To convert from 3GP video to other formats with River Past software, please have Apple QuickTime installed.

What is VCD?

Video CD uses MPEG-1 for video compression and .DAT as the file extension.
