Couples of days ago, I saw a guy on a forum asking "I have a 3GP file recorded with my Android cell phone. I would like to convert it to mp3, preferably on an MP3 player. Any recommendations, please?" It's quite obvious that the guy wants to convert 3GP to MP3 for MP3 playback. But actually, why do we need to convert 3GP files to MP3 format? Perhaps this explanation makes sense: 3GP is a standard format for mobile devices and it has got very poor compatibility with most applications, software or media devices like MP3 player, resulting in the so-called "format incompatibility". Now that we are pretty clear of the reason, here comes the key point-how can we transcode .3gp to .mp3 format?
