HELP!!!!


I am trying to get some precious video off an old phone and the Ubuntu Software for Linux will not reconize the phone. I was able to pull them off with bluetooth; however, they are in .3g2 format. What program do I need in order to see and save these files in Linux?

Not help...

You will get more attention and more help if you use "edit" to change the title of your thread to something more descriptive of your problem.

You'll also get several answers if you actually google "3g2 file convertor Linux", did you try that?

Wikipedia...

ffmpeg is mentioned for converting, but they should be playable with vlc or MPlayer.

to "see" them ?
your gui


to save them "paste" after "copy"

but if you want to play the video
Mplayer with the 2011 ALL codec package should do
