Hey, today I will explain you how to convert 3gp format to mp4 using easy tool called “HandBrake”.
Handbrake – opensource software for windows is easy and fast media converter, you can convert with HandBrake almost any video format into “mp4” using codecs like x264 or new x265.
First you need to download HandBrake, you can download HandBrake from https://handbrake.fr/downloads.php, there is Windows, Linux and Mac versions on this website. I have windows, so I will download windows version.
To convert your video file, select from Menu – “File” – > “Open Source”, if you wanna convert single video file select first option “
ok, now you can choose various options like speed conversion, quality of the output file, format etc.
for me the most important is speed and quality, to change speed time find “Encoder Preset” and select from few available options, I prefer to select “Fast” it is good option if you want to convert with high speed…quality of the output file will be also good.
In HandBrake you can choose between few codecs, x264 and x265.
Conversion speed to x264 will be higher and I prefer to use this codec, but x265 is newest codec and conversion with this format will give us the same quality like in x264 but with 30 – 50 % lower output file size.
ok if you are done with conversion setting you can start conversion, select output folder (where u want to save output file) and click “Start Encode” button.
Converion should start, and after few minutes your converted video will be ready to play !
