I was recently recording some voice overs with my Galaxy S II and I was importing the files to my computer, I was slightly befuddled when I was greeted with this:
Now here I am with a time sensitive project and now I gotta go digging through the internet looking for a file converter for this strange format. Or did I? Well back in the day (circa 2006) I owned the good ‘ol T-809, a Samsung slider phone which recorded audio in the strange .3gp file format. I remembered that you could simply rename the extension to .mp3 and the files would play fine (conversely, you could also rename mp3s to .3gp and they could be used as ringtones).
I tried the same for these .3ga files and it worked! Drag and dropped those bad boys into Windows Live Movie Maker like it was nobody’s business. So remember kids, simply rename the file extension from .3ga to .mp3!
