Posted:I just worked out how to compress video so it will play on mobile phones biggrin

So i thought id put a couple on the web to see if people like the idea.



The codec is called 3gp and its what your phone (if it does video) records in.



I have only put 3 vids up in 3gp so far but if people like the idea im happy to do more, also if people want me to convert any of their vids so they can play on mobiles too im happy to cos it doesn't take too long.

The files end up between 1 and 4Mb so i dont mind hosting either.



To be able to do this you need a multimedia phone that you can connect to your computer.



So here you go, click on the more info bit at the top for instructions.

Dont click the 3gp links at the end of each video, all you will get is text crap, you need to download them first



Now whenever someone goes "spinning, what the hell is spinning?" you can show them even in confined spaces ubbrollsmile

Posted:i use final cut pro on a mac for editing and it has it as one of the export options but my mate who has a pc says you can download free ones try googling 3gp converter.

Other than that i think quick time 7 pro which is by apple but works on pc does it. there is a link on my site for standard then you need to find a pro code and put it in the standard qt7 to unlock the pro features
