The first step is to get yourself an audio/video converter. You can either buy one, or pick one of the free programs available on internet. Just make sure, that the converter you have chosen, is able to convert AVI files to 3GP files.


For our guide we have used the popular MyVideoConverter, a very powerful shareware convertor, that can convert broad array of both audio and video formats. But even if you have chosen other software convertor, the following steps will be pretty similar in most (if not all of them).

Converting AVI to 3GP with MyVideoConverter

  1. Install your selected converter.
  2. After successful installation, start your converter.
  3. Select/Add your imput (AVI) file(s) to the list of files you wish to convert. There is usually some kind of "Add" button, in case of MyVideoConverter its Add -> Add one file/Add multiple files, which opens a new window with various selection options. With the add multiple files option you can queue multiple AVI source files and convert them all at once.

    Select/Add your source AVI files in MyVideoConverter.
  4. In the new window chose your preferred output file format you wish your AVI files to convert to. There is usually a list of possible output file formats. In MyVideoConverter select the 3GP files in the Convert to: selection box.

    Choose 3GP as the output format in MyVideoConverter.
  5. Select the source file, your AVI file, you wish to convert into 3GP file. Simply use the ... browser next to the Source File: box and select your AVI file.

    Browse through your files to select the source AVI file.

    Select the AVI source file you wish to convert to 3GP file with MyVideoConverter.
  6. By default, the application creates the converted files in the source file directory and uses a predefined file name. But you can choose your own output path and name your converted file. Again in the ... browser next to Target: box, select the folder you wish to place your new 3GP file and also its name.
  7. If you wish, you can also tweak various audio-video settings, including quality, bit rate, codecs, size etc., but if you have no experience with it, we recommend to keep the default settings.
  8. When you are satisfied with your selected options, click on OK button and your conversion will be added to the queue. You can queue up multiple files and convert them all at once, even to different output formats.

    Set up the output 3GP filename and any additional audio video settings customized by MyVideoConverter.
  9. Now you can see the list of your conversions, that will be performed by the application. To start the conversion, simply click on Start button.

    Press start to convert your AVI file to 3GP file format with MyVideoConverter.

Congratulations! You can now play your new 3GP files in your favorite media player!
