What is a 3GP File?
3GP, also known as 3GPP, is a container file format used to store multimedia content, which includes video and audio data. This format was primarily designed to run multimedia devices on the older 3G phones which did not have MP4 capabilities, but it can also run on some 2G and 4G phones. This format is based on the ISO media file format which stores video streams as H.263 or H.264 codecs, and audio streams as AMR-WB, AMR-WB+, AMR-NB, HE-AAC v1, AAC-LC.
3GP supports variable bitrates, enabling it to store good quality media. On top of it, the biggest advantage of using a 3GP file is its size. 3GP is a tiny multimedia file designed to save space on the storage drive. This also makes 3GP easy to share over the network consuming less network bandwidth and quick downloads/uploads. A 3GP file always stores and transfers the most significant bytes first.
Although the file format is becoming obsolete by the day, it is still being used for archived media data.
