There are two separate independent factors you have to keep straight. First is the actual compression-format used for the data itself, such as MPEG2, DIVX, MPG4, H264, etc. Then there's the container file format that encompasses the data, such as AVI, MPG, MOV, MP4, etc. Check out ffmpegX
. Has some pre-sets for iPod and pretty much all other formats. I actually go the other way around and use it to convert downloaded AVI movies up to MPEG2 and burn 4-5 movies onto one DVD.
The new universal-binary compilation for the new Intel-based Macs runs blazingly fast, does about 100-120fps to convert a movie at 4x real-time speed.
