I do quite a lot of video conversion on my ubuntu system, and I
haven't been let down by ffmpeg for converting to mpeg, and mencoder
for anything else! The man pages for mencoder are useful, and I
believe at one point I found a good tutorial on the Gentoo forums
which gave a lot of examples that can be adapted.
