My cellphone videos in 3GP format. I have been looking for a good 3GP viewer, freeware, and preferably one that does not need Quicktime. I've given up looking due to user comments warning that they have spyware or are not good viewers for whatever reason.

Also, can anyone suggest a 3GP converter (to .avi or mpeg)?

BTW, I got fed up with Quicktime and uninstalled it. Irritates me like RealPlayer. :p

Quicktime Alternative > Configuration: maybe I need to do something here (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/MWSnap110.jpg)?

You need the K-Lite Codec Pack (http://www.codecpackguide.com/quicktimealt.htm) pack installed as well I think

Did you uninstall QT?

That "preferences" you show in the last post is Quick Time prefs...

VideoLAN Client should do the trick?

Yes, I did uninstall QT. Just checked using CrapCleaner and its not there; also not visible using Control Panel > Add/Remove. But the folder is still there in Program Files with one file in it so I have now deleted it.
[edit] tried once again: Start > Programs > QTAlternative > Configuration.... and I still get a Quick Time window opening (see post #4 above).

When I open a 3GP file using QT Alternative's Media Player Classic, I still get the error message.

Don't know what is wrong... :stare:

I forgot to say that I have tried VLC but it only shows the video, without any audio.

THAT WORKED! :clap

QT Alternative is great - unlike QT itself, the viewing screen can be made any size and there are several slow or fast playing speeds (forward or reverse).

:clap Thanks everyone for the assistance.
