3GP Player 2008 is a freeware application that makes an OK video player. This application is a really simplistic take at the problem of mobile format playback. It doesn't really want to take the place of media player giants like Windows Media Player or VLC. This application lacks a lot in the design department. But I guess you don't really need a fancy player as long as it plays video well, and 3GP Player 2008 does exactly that. It has support for the most popular mobile formats, such as 3GP, MPEG-4 and 3G2. You can add support to other formats by installing codec packages. As I said, the graphical user interface is simple, at best. You get three buttons when you first open it. All you have to do is click import video and select the file that you want to play. The player will open it just right. As far as I could notice, the application didn't have support for subtitles or any advanced playback options. I would only recommend this application if you are desperate to watch a 3gp clip and can't get to the VLC site really fast. Otherwise, completely dismiss this one.
- It's free
- Good for mobile formats
- Lacks advanced options, subtitle support, a polished design and personality
