- same problem here. But I can't even manage to transcode .3gp files... I've tried every h.263 codec I can find, but no joy. Persumably it's in a custom wrapper of some kind. But it does appear possible to make MPEG-4 files from .3gp, and I hope to get details later this week, and of course from MP4, you can go to anything you want on an automated batch basis with little or no hassle.
Have you managed to transcode from .3gp? If so, I'd probably give you my wife, family, pets, flag, honour and worldly goods if you could tell me how.
It may just be me, but it does seem the documentation available here on Forum Nokia could be a tad more explicit as regards this video format.
No I am not able to transcode .3gp file neither. I was trying to use the Java Media Framework as my application runs on a Java application server but 3gp file format is not supported by JMF.
Please keep me updated if you are able to do anything with these files or if if find any valuable information about the file format.
Could anybody from Nokia tell a bit more about how to proceed, where to get more information about the file formats? I mean technical specifications.
If I look at the MediaConverter, I see that you try to make the delivery of media content to the phone easier. However I think that doing the other way around (integrating media captured by the mobile device) should not be neglected since it could be used in many application cases.
The point is that you have to figure out the format of the phone captured 3gp clip, and use some ready transcode tool, such as JMF to convert it to some more popular formats. This is just a few hundred lines of Java code. But it's really a pain to hack 3gp format BIT by BIT.
