You may have some 3GP videos left over from the 3G era. Opening .3gp files is impossible on newer versions of QuickTime, so an alternative solution is necessary. File conversion is possible, but time-consuming. Most likely, you’ll need a third-party video player for Mac. We have a suggestion that will not only help you play 3GP, but also many other formats.
Elmedia Player is your #1 utility for opening Mac video files, 3GP included. It can help you configure audio, video and subtitles with its helpful features. Avoid audio and subtitle desync, create and export playlists, make bookmarks to remember where you left off - enjoy your 3GP to the fullest.
This 3GP player Mac app can even stream the videos to DLNA, AirPlay 2 and Chromecast devices. Use the video tuner and audio equalizer for the best effect, and look for subtitles online, even automatically, if you want more clarity in your 3GP movies.
3GP (alternatively .3g2) is a container format based on MPEG-4 and intended for 3G mobile networks. 3GP files are adapted to low bandwidth and file sizes, which made them more available on early mobile phones and slow wireless networks. A .3gp video can be encoded in MPEG-4 Part 2, H.263 or H.264, with an AMR-NB, AMR-WB, AAC-LC, HE-AAC v1 or HE-AAC v2 audio track.
