Converting 3gp videos to mpeg on Ubuntu
Here it is a guide to convert video from 3gp format, typical of mobile phones, in a format supported by most Ubuntu software.
Most phones use new generation 3gp format to save the video taken by the camera.
Unfortunately, it is not easy to find video editors that can handle this type of file, especially on systems running Ubuntu.
The only solution is the conversion to a format more widely supported, such as mpeg.
Searching on Google, I found a simple and quick method to convert a file directly from the site HowTo Ubuntu.
The basic requirement is to have software ffmpeg, a complete solution to manage audio and video flows.
In case you have not already installed on your system Ubuntu, you can remedy typing from command line the following string:
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
When you have installed ffmpeg, simply navigate to the folder where the video content is - in this case is called file.3gp) and type:
ffmpeg -y -i file.3gp -sameq -f mpegvideo -s cif -r 25 -ar 32000 -ac 1 file.mpg
In most cases cases it should work in a short time and you’ll have your file converted into a format compatible with your favorite software.
Otherwise, there is no better solution than using Mobile Media Converter!
After download the file mmc-lin.tgr.gz for Linux, extract the files it contains and start the software by double-clicking the command Mobile Media Converter .
This opens a screen from which, in a few simple steps, you can make the conversion desired.
The program has the features drag and drop, and then just drag your files .3 gp conversion on the window and click the button Convert now!
