Video Conversion for IPod

Hi List,

I have got a new IPod Classic 120GB (Video IPod) and I would like to play
some videos on it. The problem is that videos converted with Avidemux don't
work out of the box. Also, I have been trying to use WinFF to convert videos
but even though ffmpeg and other such required tools are installed, I have
no luck converting videos that run successfully on the IPod.
Please tell me any tricks you might have learnt for successful conversion.
The error I am getting is similar to this -- libxvid not found (so
conversion cannot take place at all in WinFF).
But I have libxvid installed (check via apt-get).

I also have mencoder installed. Does anybody know a script to convert videos

Please help.

PS: I am using Kubuntu Hardy (8.04).
