3gp & VirtualDub or AviSynth

Hi all,

is it possible to open 3gp files with VirtualDub or AviSynth without converting them?

thanks in advance

if your system can play back 3gp files, you can (try to) use a basic avisynth script to open it. (must have avisynth properly installed with virtual dub).

open a new document with notepad and type the following, but use the path and name of your video file. Save it as a .avs file, then open it in virtual dub.




As for what you will be able to do with the video, I am not sure… I don’t have much experience with avisynth or 3gp files. I just came across the script one day and thought it might be useful, so I wrote it down. :stuck_out_tongue:

Already tried directshow and failed. Unrecognised format. Also tried to rename .3gp to .avi and .mov as well.

Any other suggestions?


Get a 3gp parser such as Haali’s and compatible playback filter(s) such as ffdshow.
