3G2 is an audio / video format that was developed using the 3rd Generation Partnership Project 2 (3GPP2). The file extension is an improved version of the 3GP format. Today it is already outdated, despite the fact that it was previously updated. As a result of the implementation of the 3rd Generation Partnership Project, standards were developed that relate to methods of transmitting a wide variety of media data. For example, on mobile networks. The development of such standards, in particular, has led to the introduction of the 3G2 format and to the use of various types of media data on the global network for online streaming. This type of file is most often used on mobile phones, as well as on phones that support 3G. 3G2 video files can also be played on many computers. We emphasize that in this case there may be a need for additional applications. The 3G2 format is very similar to the MPEG-4 Part 14 series (MP4) format. However, in comparison with it, the 3G2 format is not so complicated. When you apply this type of file, you need to consider the possibility of reducing the requirements for the width of both the information transfer channel and disk space. So, the format for mobile phones is exactly what you need. 3G2 files have been specifically developed for phones operating in the CDMA standard.
ALAC is the format of a small specialized program called an audio codec. Its main task is to compress a file with digital music without losing its quality. The name of the format created by Apple's IT giant is Apple's abbreviation Lossless Audio Codec. This format may also be called ALE (from Apple Lossless Encoder). Files in this format can play devices even with limited computing resources - such as an iPod. When compressing a file in this format, it is approximately 40-60% of the original file. Now almost every multimedia player based on the libavcodec library is able to play ALAC format files.
