 Seems `3gp`, `3g2` and `3gpp` are fairly popular. For example KitKat
 (Android 4.4) tries to upload a "recording-*.3gpp" file when the user
 selects "Sound Recording" as the upload source.

 The proper mime types seems to be `video/3gpp` and `video/3gpp2` despite
 that the files can contain only audio. Both
 [https://tools.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3839.txt FRC 3839] and
 [http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4393 RFC 4393] state that:

  The type "audio/3gpp" may be used for files containing audio but no
  visual presentation (neither video nor timed text, for example).
  The type "video/3gpp" is valid for all files.  It is valid to serve
  an audio-only file as "video/3gpp".
