doing a search with google..there are links which indicate that RealPlayer can play 3gp files...never tested it myself

 

What to keep in mind  3gp is really a container.  this container has 2 principle parts.... VIDEO & AUDIO.  Most website media players will say that they can play 3gp, avi, divX, Xvid, mkv...and all these are containers.  What's important is the Video codec & audio codec used to create the media file.

 

To keep things simple you have 2 options :

 

1 - download a bunch of media players ( ie. RealPlayer, Media Player Classic, QuickTime, VLC etc..) and see if each can play your media file

 

2 - copy the media file over to your computer and then convert the file to a more common format ( this will require you to be a little more technical and do some research )

 

If you really want to know the video and audio codec inside you 3gp media file, then you can download a free app called MediaInfo ( http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/en/Download )

how can I upload pictures from my lg gossip to my PC.  help please Smiley

hook up your phone to your PC and activate mass storage...a pop up will come up on ur PC allowing u to download the pix to ur PC

One more note....you phone records 3gp video in a certain size ( aka resolution ....ie..1024 x 780, 640 x 480, etc...you need to determine what it is ) ...when converting video to another format file type and as well changing the original resolution...loss of picture quality may occur.
