A 3GP file, as mentioned earlier in this article, is a video file having the 3GPP file format. This format had been specifically set by the Third Generation Partnership Project on multimedia services used on 3G, 4G, and some models of 2G phones.
The 3GP format is capable of storing video streams as H.263, MPEG-4 Part 10 (AVC/H.264), or MPEG-4 Part 2 streams. It handles audio streams, on the other hand, as AMR-WB, AMR-WB+, HE-AAC, among others. Additionally, a 3GP file is always of the type big-endian, as it stores and transfers most significant bytes first and the less significant ones last.
For purposes of clarification, it is also very important to confuse the 3GP format with the 3GPP. The 3GP format is a multimedia container format and only one in a line of a great number of container formats such as the more known AVI, MKV, and MPG formats. The 3GPP is the file format used for files having the .3gp extension – those that are actually using the 3GP as its multimedia container format. It is significant to note that these two formats serve different purposes but work on the same video file.
