Knowledge Sharing: 3GP vs. AVI
3GP is a video file format designed for mobile phone, which is based on the structure of MPEG-4 Part 14, otherwise known as MP4. As a simplified version of MPEG-4 container format used for viewing and recording video at 3G mobile phones, 3GP was designed to reduce the overhead in terms of storage and bandwidth to allow video files that could be handled by smart phones. 3GP is a worldwide standard for the creation, delivery and playback of multimedia over 3rd generation, high-speed wireless networks, seeking to provide uniform delivery of rich multimedia over newly evolved, broadband mobile networks (3rd generation networks) to the latest multimedia-enabled wireless devices.

AVI stands for Audio Video Interleave. Files of this format have an .AVI extension. Developed by Microsoft in 1992, it has become so widespread that many people consider it the de-facto standard for storing video and audio information on PC. AVI combines audio and video into a single file in a standard container to allow simultaneous playback. Its advantage is a simple architecture, due to which AVI runs on a number of different systems like Windows, Mac, Linux, and UNIX and is supported by all of the most popular web-browsers.
