We often have videos on the computer that we would like to be able to watch on our mobile phone, especially to be able to take advantage of those idle moments when we are away from home. The problem arises when the source format is not compatible with those supported by the mobile, such as 3GP, for example. To fix this we can use tools such as video converters . They are applications fairly simple to install and use for transforming videos into other formats adapted to mobile devices and even determine the size of the final file.
