  Bestselling Author 15:42 13 Aug 2005

Does anyone know if Windows Media Player has any updates that will allow it to play 3gp movies recorded on a mobile phone?

Quicktime will play files with the .3gp extension click here

Well i never knew that,but i have never used Quicktime,i think its far to intrusive,bit like realplayer.All you need in theory then is the quicktime codecs not the player.

I suppose so it is only the 6.5 version that supports 3gp thou.

6.4 is what I am using, came with my cheapo olympus camera. It plays 3gp no problem, although on my system real is the default player.

Well i must say i am suprised that they play outside moblie phones but i am wrong and i admit it.

You can also import 3gp into nero vision express and edit the files!

Done it a few times with clips of my kiddies I'd taken on my phone.

You learn something new everyday a friend was asking me if I could put 3gp files onto a dvd for her so she can play them back through her dvd player.

So I can just import them into nero vison express edit them and then burn to disk for playback through the telly?

they'll be rubbish quality mind you. this is one of the kids running about and I dubbed the benny hill theme over it.
