What is 3GP and 3G2?
3GPP and 3GPP2 are container file formats for video and audio data. The 3GPP file has the 3GP file extension and is made for GSM mobile phones. The 3GPP2 file has the 3G2 file extension and is made for CDMA phones. 3G2 is similar to 3GP in many aspect but still has some limitations compared to 3GP. Both 3GP and 3G2 are lossy compressed video formats.
If you’re looking for a 3GP or a 3G2 file, you are highly unlikely to find one on your computer because the formats are the standard used in the Universal Mobile Telecommunications System on mobile phones. The videos generated and saved in this container format are small in size but small in resolution.
How do I view a 3GP and 3G2 file online?
Both 3GP and 3G2 files use the H.264 codec and are supported by the leading media players, however, online support for these formats is not as common. To play a 3GP or a 3G2 file in your browser, and to share it easily so that your recipient doesn’t struggle as well to view the file, upload it to Jumpshare and click to play it. The file plays in your web browser and the video player allows you to pause playback, manage volume, and view the video in full screen. Since these videos usually have low resolution, it is very likely that the video quality deteriorates in full screen mode.
