Hi;

I recently have tried using VLC Media Player. The thing is that I am having a problem playing 3gpp files. You can see the vido but there is no sound? Can you help me on this?

Thanks.

This might be due to the fact that AMR is the standard codec used by 3GPP.
The Wiki of VLC Media Player states the following:

"To use AMR, you'll need to compile vlc and ffmpeg with amr support yourself. This is because the amr license is not compatible with the vlc license."

Hi'

Thanks for the reply. If that is the case, can you recommend a freeware player that will play 3gpp files..I also heard about KM Player, have you used it? Is it good?

Thanks :flowers:

Regards,

voltron :thumbsup:

No, I haven't tried KM Player. And to be honest I don't have experience with GPP files with AMR encoded sounds.

I have heard that the K-Lite codec pack (http://www.codecguide.com/about_kl.htm) would allow to play GPP/AMR files on Windows Media Player, but I have no personal experience with that, so I can't confirm that this works. I have also heard that QuickTime Player should be able to play such files, but again I have no personal experience.
