I had some video of my kids taken with my phone and are therefore in the 3GP format. The problem is that when tried to play them on my PC (running Ubuntu Linux), there's no sound. So I looked around and found the perfect solution: the Mobile Media Converter.

Desktop audio: mp3, wma, ogg, ra (as input only)Mobile audio: amr, mp4Desktop video: mpeg, wmv, avi, flv, mov, rv (as input only)Mobile video: 3gp, mp4An installer for Ubuntu Linux is available and I quickly installed it with a few clicks. To the guys making this very useful -- and free -- tool, thanks a lot! I think I'll make a donation later.
