    3GP video files

    My Nokia phone takes these videos. Is there a freeware program or a codec for MediaPlayer that can convert these to AVI or MPEG. The program that comes with the phone plays them but cannot save them to a different format
    Thanks

    Not familiar with the format, but it appears that several companies have decided to "cash in" on this need that you (and doubtless many others) have, by charging several hundred dollars for conversion software.

    How to convert .3GP into .AVI shows how to do it, using <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> software, and explains a bit about the file format. The one thing I'd strongly recommend with these methods is to adopt their option of installing QuickTime Alternative 1.44 (free) rather than QuickTime Pro from Apple (not free). The latter is one of those apps notorious for trying to take over anything & everything it can find on your computer, and is as hard to clean out as some of the most tenacious spyware (in my experience, anyway).

    Let's know if you have some luck with their methods.
