I took several videos with my bberry at an Eagles concert and emailed them to myself and friend for viewing on our desktop and laptop computers. The 3g videos will not play. Any suggestions?

You need to have a player that will play that file format. Windows Media Player won't play them. The free version of Quicktime will play them. This article mentions some other media players that are compatible with 3gp files.

3GP - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There may be others, but I don't recall them at present.

The latest version of Real Player will play them - Real Player SP.
