Opening 3GPP files

Did your computer fail to open a 3GPP file? We explain what 3GPP files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your 3GPP files.

What is a 3GPP file?

Files with the .3gpp extension are most commonly associated with 3GPP multimedia files. 3GPP stands for 3rd Generation Partnership Project. The 3GP file format was created to transmit media files between 3G cell phones using the Internet. It is used to play, record and view multimedia files on mobile phones. The 3GP file format is based on the MPEG-4 standard.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
