Different video formats are created through various compression techniques, and they are meant to run on multiple platforms. When the users want to play videos on another platform, they require a particular player to run the supported format. If the user doesn’t have a supported media player, he will have to convert the video to a format supported by the platform.
Today, we will learn that how an MP4 video can be converted to a 3G2 Format. Both MP4 and 3G2 Format are containers for audio and video data, but some differences are there due to the compression techniques.
An MP4 file is a format from the MPEG-4 family. It has become more prevalent among users due to its flexibility to run video online on streaming platforms. If you have downloaded a video from a website, there are maximum chances that it is in MP4 format.
Apart from the video content, the MP4 can also store audio, subtitles, and images.

3G2 Format is the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP2) multimedia container that is the predecessor of the 3GP Format. But it uses lesser space and Internet bandwidth than 3GP.
