What product can I safely use/download to allow me to convert video files from my phone and camera to a type that will allow play, sharing, and saving of videos on my PC?
The "recommened" products harm my PC and come with options I do not want added on to my core.
My camera's video files are .avi. My cell phone is not a smart phone. It's video files are a strange type. The phone says: 3gp
Really would appreciate some educated help here. this cannot POSSIBLY be this difficult! Just want to share my daughter taking her first swim strokes
Thanks and Cheers!
If there comes no educated answer you may be helped - in the mean time - with AnyVideoConverter's free download. It converts about everything to everything, including the conversion from 3gp. The free version will ask you to upgrade after every conversion but is fully functional.
I use the payed version and must say that it is reliable and fast. And no, I am in no way connected to the makers!
Okay. If you could tell me the best, safest free version to download that would be helpful. Even a 30day trial would be great. Don't worry about promoting products. I don't care. This just blows my mind that I cannot just upload and play. It is understood that my phone comes with no disk/hardware so that's a downfall.
When I am given the option to search the internet for software that will allow for this conversion(3gp and avi)it puts me to only one: Final Media Player that comes with a ton of of things which I can empty from my system. Nonetheless; the media player will not allow me to share video's in emails, social networking, etc. The conversion took nearly 45mins to convert ONE file. The video was small in size; short in length, no HD on my cell:)
Do you have a specific site you could recommend? I'm all about photography and art but video media is an another education in itself.
Thanks for responding.
To download the free version go to: http://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/
I agree with both being all about photography and art (as can be seen via my website, the link is in my profile) and still struggling to find a way in video.
To play with it in Lightroom I had to convert files to mp4, that's why I needed a converting application. After trying some I ended up with AVC which is versatile as well as fast.
Please tike a while to look at the different conversion options and experiment a little.
