Among the numerous advantages of the latest generation of mobile phones, photo and video capturing capabilities are highly appreciated. The fact that you no longer need a camera to record media content, but you can use your phone instead is priceless. Most of the times, the captured clips are in a format that require a special player for you to be able to view them on your computer.
3GP is one of those formats. Replaying 3GP files can only be achieved with software equipped with the latest codec packs. A quicker solution is to make us of a player especially designed for this specific format: 3GP Player.
This software is more than a typical video player that enables you to view all the 3GP clips you have recorded using your mobile phone. It can play files located on a DVD and VCD, as well as an URL, TV or radio link.
When playing a video, you can adjust its speed as you see fit, by simply using some dedicated keyboard hotkeys. They can also be used for pausing and stopping the clip, or for jumping to the next item within the playlist.
The video frames can get rotated, flipped or enlarged, whereas the audio can be delayed, filtered and even extracted from an external file then overlaid with the current video. You can get snapshots as you watch your preferred clip, or you can change the aspect ratio or deinterlace the video.
3GP Player enables you to add subtitles, and experiment with font types and sizes, margins, border style, colors, and alignment, until you come up with the best combination.
It is worth mentioning that despite its name, 3GP Player does not support only mobile formats (3GP, 3GPP2 or MPEG-4), but also others like AVI and WMV but some errors might occur.
All in all, 3GP Player is recommended for users who are in the habit of recording videos with their cell phones. Its straightforward interface, together with its ease of use and accessibility make it a wise choice for playing 3GP files.
