Anybody knows how to convert demos to *.3gp format?

category: general [glöplog]
I was wondering if there was a master who can make or convert demo format from *.exe to *.3gp?

I am asking this because I wanna to embed demos into MMS on cell phone,sharing it with my friends.MMS cannot afford too big *.exe file,instead, 20KB 3gp file is OK for MMS transmission.

Who can do this on PC then run it on a Windows Mobile OS based cell phone?

Actually it's quite easy. .3gp is a video format - just download the video of the demo, convert it to 3gp (plenty of video converters do this I think), send the file.

Of course a 5 minute video at reasonable quality is going to be 20MB+, not 20KB, so you'll end up with a really shitty quality video that takes half an hour to send. Why not just send them the youtube link?

Maybe he just wants to share the exe embedded in a 3gp? If that's the case I guess you could make a tiny 3gp video and append the exe data to the end... You'd have to strip the 3gp header off at the receiving end though.

This is the topic initiator,thx for replies.

I'm not talking about *.exe demos playing on pocketpc,I'm not talking about watching or downloading video from a wap site.

What I'm interested is if somebody can make demo with *.3gp format which can be embedded into a MMS.Just imagin,if you send a MMS to your friend,when he/she receives and opens it,he/she can watch demo directly,how exciting!

Thanks to demo makers&technology,we can make 30min demos with 64KB size,but that is not good enough for MMS embedding,a MMS can only carry 100KB information one time.So,can we make a 2~3min demo with 20KB size *.3gp file?Why everybody make demos with *.exe or *.avi only?That's still very big for MMS!

convert demo format

Are you sure you know what you talk about? What is for you a demo format? A demo is (usually) an exec created for a specific machine, so converting it needs to rewrite it completly (eg Desert Dreams on Amiga/c64).

You should look at the list given by Gargaj, or maybe to some platform independant demos (java or portable demos in C).

And yes, it's possible to make a 30 min demo in 1Kb...

Almost forgot: you can use an emulator, but the size would increase...

I think you are mixing many things together... maybe you should first get familiar with all the different technologies you are mentioning in your post!

en....my understanding, exec demo can be treated as "video file",it can be run and watched on PC or PPC platform.

100KB size MMS cannot insert big size video,and it support 3gp format video only.

I'm a MMS mobilepaper publisher,I want my readers who can watch videos in my MMS mobilepaper.....not from wap links....

the problem here is the OP thinks that a demo is just a video clip and a player in an exe, I think..

Mr. OP, a demo executable (exe) is a piece of code at generates the video (and sometimes audio) realtime.. ergo it's impossible to convert e.g. a 64kb intro into a ~64kb 3gp file since 3gp is a video file format (unless the intro is *very* short timewise ;-).

I converted Elevated to a 3gp file for you, but i could only get it down to 358k using the meagre tools i have at hand.

I see what's going on here. You want to know if you could send a small demo made specifically for mobile phones in an MMS.

Unfortunately no. MMS is for pre-rendered video and audio only. There is no way to put executable code in MMS messages because that would be a security risk.

However, you might be able to embed one of the PPC demos Gargaj linked to in an MMS, provided the recipient has a tool on their phone to extract the embedded demo from the MMS message.

wait man, im with you on this nice idea to use the mobile for sending demos! so i gave it a thought and i have a brilliant idea: maybe you can chop up an .exe into 160 char chunks and sms your friiend a 64k in a few hundred SMSes?!?!
wap to youtube.com and download/stream from there. works fine.
Seems there's no way to realize it...

If you could only realize it...

hello everybody,

i'd like to convert a demo from *.exe into *.iso format, so that i can burn it onto a blu-ray disk and watch it in my home cinema. also, it would be nice if you could tell me how to convert a demo *.exe to *.mp3 and to *.jpg, so that i can embed it in my webpage with dreamweaver.

srsly, dude, get some knowledge about what a demo really is...

video please !
Serdes, if you really didn't get it yet, it's like trying to run a normal PC game on a phone. Even if you got a mouse and a keyboard attached, it's just not going to work.
