File extension .3GPP
The 3GPP file extension is used to signify low-bitrate, multimedia files created using 3GPP technologies. It is considered a specialised form of the MP4 file type, and is typically used to store audio, video, graphics, and other data inside a single file container. 3GPP files may contain various multimedia content such as manipulated images, video text streams, and audio streams that have been compressed with one of the supported compression algorithms. Due to their favourable size/quality ratio, 3GPP files are favoured for use in goods delivery networks (e.g., OTT services) and in mobile devices (e.g., smart phones).
The 3GPP file type is associated with the Network File System (NFS), which uses the same container to store its compressed multimedia streams. By adopting this format, NFS enables users to create content-rich files that can be transferred from one phone or device to another with much higher efficiency, thus reducing bandwidth utilisation. For any associated streaming services such as OTT video, the 3GPP file type offers significant advantages due to its efficient compression structure.
Similar File Formats
The 3GPP file extension is highly compatible with other multimedia application formats such as AVI, MP4, WebM, MKV, MOV, and FLV. It can be opened in most Media Players for playback without the need of additional plugins.

After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .3GPP) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .3GPP extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .3GPP file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .3GPP extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .3GPP extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .3GPP file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .3GPP file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .3GPP file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .3GPP file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .3GPP file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
