Title: .3gp to .mov
Post by: juanturrion on 2004-01-09 11:21:30
Hi all,

i need to translate a 3gp/h263 baseline file into a quicktime/h263 baseline file in order to grab some frames with the Java Media Framework on a solaris. I 've been looking through it but i don't know what changes are needed to make in the 3gp file format, any idea, any suggestion, any sample???

Thanks in advance!!

hm simply try opening the .3gp in quicktime and pass trough to .mov

dunno if this is possible but i guess the chance that it works is great

Thanks anyway.

Sorry i didnĀ“t understand your reply at first, i cannot make use of quicktime due to the fact that mu application must run on a solaris machine.

Open the file in QuickTime, choose File -> Save as... and in the following dialog choose to save as "Self-contained."

The above requires QuickTime Pro. If you have a Windows machine, you may be able to do it using the 3ivx filter suite (http://www.3ivx.com/download/windows.html).


I see you wish to do it on a Solaris machine. FFmpeg (http://ffmpeg.sf.net) will do the trick. Download and compile it, and issue the following command:

ffmpeg -acodec copy -vcodec copy -i infile.3gp outfile.mov
