How to view recovered 3gp files from android?

I recently recovered some 3gp video files from an android phone and am able to view some but then there are others that cannot be played even though they were also recovered (the playable files have a pic from the vid on the cover while the nonplayable files dont). Can anyone help me out or someone that knows? I tried to convert the files into other formats using programs like Prism Video File Converter Video Converter and Freemake Video Converter but no go, it couldnt read them. Help.

It's a long shot, but you could try uploading the files to YouTube.

Try to see if the files will playback using either VLC or QuickTime (3GP is native in QuickTime).

When you deleted something in your phone, first remember not to use your phone again, including text, calling,and try to recover the data you want first. After that, you may use you phone.
