Can't View Uploaded Vids From Phone.

I have uploaded some vids from a phone to my pc but they wont play. How can I view them and how can I convert them so I can put them on a disc to watch on a DVD player? Thanks.

Well I have downloaded a 3GP player and they play ok, now how do I get them on disc?

Do you want to just dump them on a disc for storage or do you want them to be on a playable disc ie: VCD or DVD?

I want them playable please.

For aprogram to convert the 3gp files to avi files, go here

click here

or here

click here

Both are free programs. I haven't tried either nut the second one has a good TUCOWS rating.

Once in avi format, virtually any DVD or VCD aurthoring program, ie: Nero or even Windows Media Player should burn then to disc with ease.

Good luck

You need to convert the format from 3gp to MPEG

This may help click here

For example click here you may find the best convertors need to be paid for.

Ok I have converted them using said software. When I go to burn them as a VCD it says 'Cannot Start Video Encoder' (Nero).
