    So my iPod doesnt support video.
    And I don't have an iPod.
    And I want to watch a file my friend gave me on my phone.

    Now to do this I know that I have to convert the MP4 File to .3gp. I have a converter that works great. The only problem, however is that when I convert itm it doesnt have and video. Just sound. Also the original .mp4 file only shows video in iTunes. Not any other program.

    How to I convert the video and audio to 3gp?

    VLc plays it and I am playing with the transcoding thing it has. Im not exctly sure what I am doing, but I am hoping to change it to a file where quicktime can open both video and audio, then convert it to .3gp
