A cool GUI application for conversion of media for mobile devices

I have tried Transmageddon and some other applications for media transcoding
but I remember I wanted to get MMC again, beacuse only one of those
applications (maybe Arista Transcoder) was able to converted my video to
desired format but it introduces some bad audio distortion. Maybe it has
some poor resampling code or I don't know... I might send you two files
(input and output) I was working on. MMC transcoded the same video without
the sound distortion.

Anyway, I'am gonna try Handbrake, maybe it is even better than MMC :-)

I thank you all for your interest in my question :-)

Best regards!
