3gp The 3GP file format and its associated filename extension .3gp is an audio, video, and text container developed by the 3rd generation partnership project. The target market for the 3gp file format is 3G enabled UMTS mobile phones through associated UMTS multimedia services. Though mobile devices operating on high speed networks are the intended hardware associated with playing .3gp files, many PC codec packs exist which grant compatibility for .3gp playback. The format has a basic profile in which files of this format do not reference any external media sources and support for audio, video, and text is limited to a single track.
amr The .amr filename extension refers to the adaptive multi-rate audio codec initially released in 1999. The format is typically used to encode speech audio and is optimized for this purpose. It can encode speech into one of two file version, either AMR-NB (narrow Band) or AMR-WB (Wide Band) which supports a broader frequency. Because of its optimization for speech audio, the format has been widely adopted as the standard speech codec for GSM and UMTS mobile phone networks by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project ' a collaborative group of organizations in the telecommunications industry.
