Do you know any files I can download that will let me convert a(3GPP ) so I can put them on a DVD to watch on my tv.
Note: I'm copying/pasting some PMs into forum posts, so others can discuss and share what they know. For many things, it's best to ask on the forum, not in PMs or emails. This may be an old PM, and you may already have your answers. If nothing else, it's here for posterity, and you can feel free to add your solutions.

So, let's talk tech...

At this current date, Avidemux does a decent job of converting quite a few formats to quite a few other formats -- and with added abilities of filtering. It's sort of like an advanced version of VirtualDub in many ways (though a downgrade in others).

You can easily convert MP4 (maybe 3GP?) to MPEG-2 in Avidemux. Then author to DVD-Video in your favorite authoring program. For me, that's DVDWS2. For others, it's TMPGEnc Authoring Works (formerly DVD Author).
