I use the DownloadHelper extension in Firefox.  I point the browser to a 
local directory and then right-click and select download helper and 
then, when the file manager box opens, select all the files I want to 
convert and tell it what  to convert them into.  Works great that way. 
I recently converted a whole mishmash of video files all over to AVI 
format.  And I sometimes convert videos to MP3s.  You have to go back 
and delete the old files later though.
